Really nothing special. Very poor museum, just one room with few bodies and skulls. All the round last 10 minutes if you spend a lot of time.

For those who have a scientific and historical interest in this topic that may otherwise be frightening, a visit to the crypt of the Church is absolutely a must. Here a unique micro-climate and the chemical composition of the soil contributed to naturally mummify the...More

It is a unique place where you can see several "natural mummies", kept that way by the special composition of the soil where the body were buried. It is definitely a place to visit.

If you're planning on visiting the Marmore falls consider the small village of Ferentillo and it's particular museum of the mummies. It's not very big, actually it's rather small, but the mummies are impressive and are witness of some interesting local history

The man who let us in for a small fee (office down the road if there's noone at the church), was very amiable. It was a fascinating place. One of the mummies still looked as if he was clutching his stomach as he had when...More

Museo delle Mummie was a very unique experience. Very reasonably priced as well. I would recommend this to anyone in the area.

This museum was very interesting and we're so glad we went. Many years ago it was discovered that the conditions in which these bodies were buried were so perfect for preservation that some of the mummies still have facial hair and eye lids. It is...More

Did not know what to expect. Was a bit spooky, bizarre but brilliant. Lots of skeletons with the audio it explains who they were and how they died. Not a lot to see here, just skeletons....
