We had not planned to visit this museum but are very pleased we did. We were charged a small admittance fee and this included an introduction by a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide whose explanations of the building and the region filled in centuries of background and the surprising importance and rich history of what is today a relatively sleepy town mainly concerned with fabulous food.

I was in Norcia with a guide who took me to to this museum. For a small museum in a small town it has a surprisingly good collection, a lot of which was donated by a local man. The building itself is also very interesting with underground passages to explore. The entry price is also very reasonable. So when you want a change from the endless salumerie in Norcia, visit the museum.

The curator speaks English and is quite happy to explain the many treasures of the museum. Lots of Etruscan and Roman stuff. Very interesting building.

A nice museum. Welcomed by the friendly staff we spent an hour or so touring around the palazzo and museum. I don't really mind but you should be warned that as of the time we were there the place had an unfinished feeling. A project in progress. But don't let that put you off if you are in Norcia, it's worth the visit.

I wasn't planning to enter the museum, but next to the entrance I was approached by a guide called Giorgia. Her knowledge of the local history and heritage is vast, her stories are truly captivating, and her English is excellent.
If you visit the museum, or even just the town, seek her!
