Who would have thought? This museum has the largest and best collection of Etruscan artifacts in the world! Pots, necropolis, jewelry, maps, boats and visual presentations of Spina from 450 BC. Don't miss it!

Got free entry here with our my €10 2 day FE card. The building is lovely as well as the garden. There was a lovely room with a painted ceiling and lots of interesting exhibitions including from Spina which I had never heard of.

There is. And extraordinary range of ancient surround mix to be found in this Museum. However another wonderful thing about it is the surroundings and the garden make sure you get a MyFe card which includes the entry cost. It's a bit out of town...More
