Go to this one and skip the one in Florence. This museum is beautifully renovated, easy to navigate, interesting and a trove of finds from the local area. It is not crowded and the layout of the tombs was beautifully done.

We recently stumbled on this museum by chance while based in Chianciano Terme with our Italian tour. Instead of joining our group for a visit to Rome, (on an extremely hot day) we took a leisurely walk around the old town and then saw a...More

A pleasant and informative small museum which provides a glimpse of life in Toscany more than 2000 years ago. Numerous articles from the period and reasonable recreation of life at hat time. One would wish a larger number of translated texts and information...nonetheless 1:30 hour...More

This is an amazing small museum that displays findings from archaeological digs in the nearby region. The human shaped vases (canopics) contained the ashes of the deceased with bone and amber eyes are truly special. There are wonderful pottery vases with paintings of athletes. My...More

This is a great, small and interesting museum which seems well loved locally. Over four floors, it provides a lot of information about the Etruscan people and way of life and death. The underground cellar space, formerly the olive oil store, contains some spectacular funeral...More

This is a fantastic museum! It is not big but definitely worth visiting. The Etruscans are our ancestors from 2,500 years ago and it is incredible what they were doing then. We had a guide which made it even better. So glad we went!

The Etruscan Museum of Chianciano was built over an Etruscan archeological site, but I have heard over and over that if you put a shovel in the ground in Tuscany you would very likely come up with an Etruscan relic. Etruscans are called the ‘mystery...More
