We were delighted with the time spent here as it gave us a wonderful insight into the Etruscan civilization. Absolutely a must before going to visit the Necropolis.

There are three floors full of art and objects from the etrusk era. When you finish the tour don't go to the souvenir shop because they are very rude and inpolite

For the charge of 6 euros per person, this small museum is worth visiting for 60 to 120 minutes or so. Tarquinia is also worthy of visiting and having a lunch and/or dinner.

What an extensive museum inside an amazing building. Very clean and well presented. Recommend you get the ticket that also allows entry to the necropolis which is on the edge of the town about 1.5 miles away from the museum.

Not very big, but very interesting. If you’ve made the effort to come see the tombs then definitely come here, too. Don't miss the exquisite winged horses.

You'd have to take the train north one stop to tarquinia; from train station there is a bus shuttle that takes you to the town.
