MANU - Museo Archeologico dell'Umbria. It's a massive museum with beautiful/interesting artifacts, alot from the Etruscan era. Alot of the exhibits date from 500 -300 BC, and to see that alot are still intact is just amazing. The funerary figures, tomb stones and artefacts tell...More

Strongly recommended for its sheer quantity and variety of material and items, as well as a very peaceful and beautiful setting. Rich and interesting, very well explained in all details, it's a discovery for anyone. The folklore exhibition is stunning!

The museum that just keeps giving. We intended to just spend an hour there but three hours later we were still wandering through. Take water and food as you will need it. Make sure that you see the Etruscan bronze chariot on the second floor....More

We spent 5 hours in this museum and were amazed at the collection of ancient artifacts. The only complain was the lack of English signage for the different displays. There were some general papers with English explanations, but not for every room. There were also...More

It is almost an embarrassment of riches in Etruscan art and culture. Any museum in the world would be drooling to get their hands on a fraction of the Etruscan treasures you find in this museum. But in the modern world the rule is: they...More

We really wanted to see this place as we were keen to learn more about Etruscan history. And, I suppose it is all there to see. But, there is almost no English signage or information. There are hundreds of fascinating looking artefacts, bronze work, funeral...More

This museum is supposed to be amazing. It is located in a beautiful ex monastery. There is a lot to look at (many Etruscan funeral urns, amulettes, there is even a prehistoric exhibition with silex etc) but it's hard to really be engaged when nothing...More

The museum is well organized and has an amazing amount of Etruscan artifacts (and some Roman). It is easy to visit as it is quiet and probably not very busy most of the time (we were there on a Sunday and were mostly by ourselves)....More
