A great museum for those into rocks or archaeology in general, and can speak Italian. I can't, and after visiting the medieval museum the day before where you had English hand-outs this was a bit frustrating. I knew from reading on googlemaps that they had...More

I was really surprised at the depth of these collections. Including Egyptian, Etruscian and Roman artifacts and more. It was well worth the visit.

Except for three classes or well-behaved schoolchildren, we had the place to ourselves. Because our hosts had included in the information for guests several flyers describing the various collections, we had read a lot about the museum beforehand; but it nonetheless exceeded my expectations.

I didn't expect to find such a great collection in Bologna. The museum was amazing. It was free for students (so that was a plus). They haven't translated everything into English yet so they gave us a brochure that explained most of the exhibits. The...More
