Overview

The museum has two collections. The first is dedicated to Etruscan period: Attic kraters, bronze fibulae decorated with one of the earliest representations of boxing in Etruscan words, urns and vases. The second shows works of important artists from Middle Ages to Baroque: Marco Romano; Giacomo Pacchierotto; Alessandro Casolani and his family. An essential part of the visit to the Museum is in the church "Collegiata di Santa Maria Assunta."

Incredible historic art of Siena, full rooms of frescoes and paintings. Takes about 1 hour to go through and is worth it.

We had a good look round and there are many interesting sights but they're not very exciting. Something for the keen person

We have had the chance to visit the museum during a private opening for our group and were amazed by the amount of artefacts displayed in the museum of such a little village!
