Comprehensive treatment of things Etruscan
Feb 2020
...but can be a little overwhelming. Be prepared to see a lot of pottery (much of it very beautiful, btw). The story of the Etruscan people is dealt with in thorough fashion; most exhibits are explained well in Italian and English. There are upwards of 35 rooms here, though, so it's a lot.

A great museum for history lovers and Etruscans
May 2019
The Etruscan Museum is located in Villa Julia. It is one of the most important museums in the world dedicated to Etruscan civilization and the most important Etruscan museum in Italy, housed in a magnificent Renaissance villa. The museum contains works of great value. The structure in which it is located is beautiful. When it comes to Etruscan art, there are absolute masterpieces such as Sarcophagus of Spouses and Apollo of Veia here. The works are very well arranged with clear paths. The museum staff are very friendly. Absolutely to visit.

Undiscovered treasure.
Dec 2019
This museum is not on a short list of 'must do' Rome sightseeings. And it is a pity. Etruscans are most misterious contributors to history of Roman Empire. And the museum represents their story very well. Also it is located very close to center of Rome, so if you stay near Spanish Steps, you can pleasantly walk to museum, and enter it without long lines.

Beautifully situated and curated museum of Etruscan art
Nov 2019
A must for anyone interested in Etruscan art. The galleries are expertly curated with fascinating explanations of the different grave sites at which much of the art was found. Located in the sixteenth century villa of Pope Julius III. A quiet place without the crowds. Well worth the visit.

Interesting collection & beautiful building and grounds
Oct 2019
This museum is a little off the main tourist circuit (there was hardly anyone there when I visited) but it is well worth a visit.

The museum houses Etruscan artefacts, with one of the most famous pieces probably being the Sarcophagus of the Spouses. While the collection is interesting, the building and grounds are also beautiful with one of the highlights being a replica of an Etruscan temple.

Not a “must see” but worth a look
Sep 2019 • Couples
As others have mentioned, it is a relatively quiet museum with a panoply of Etruscan artifacts. The museum is “old school”—not overly curated, but the main info is offered in English as well as Italian. (Note: individual descriptions of items are only in Italian). As someone who didn’t know a lot about the Etruscans, I learned quite a bit, and enjoyed not being jostled around by a bunch of other visitors. I wouldn’t recommend making a special trip across town on a limited schedule for this place, but we were staying nearby and found it well-worth a couple of hours.

Fascinating museum in a beautiful villa. No crowds!
Sep 2019
We visited this museum today. It is at the edge of the Borghese Gardens in a beautiful old villa. The museum is well organised and fascinating. The quality of the exhibits is outstanding. If you are at all interested in ancient history it is a must see. It is surprisingly empty of tourists, which is a relief in Rome, but a pity for the museum. There is a lot of information in Italian and English. Highly recommended.

One of the best ancient museums in europe
Sep 2019 • Couples
This museums has on display many in-tack grave site burial artifacts. These artifacts show what was traded with and made by the Etruscans 200 to 700 bce.
Pottery, Metal work, sculpture and much more. If you are a student of history you need at least 3 hours . A must see..... And not full of people...

A wonderful well organized empty museum
Aug 2019
Museo Nazionale Etursco di Villa Giulia is first of all a residence built in the 16th for one of the Popes called Julius so the building itself is impressive decorated with frescoes with grottesques with a garden and a ninfeo ( fountain )
This is the container ... the contents are magnificent dedicated to the history of the Etruscans civilization all over our peninsula from the 9th B:C: with artifacts, bronzes, terracotta vases of all shapes sizes and decorations, gold jewellery and statues.
It is always empty, people do not even realize what a treasure is inside on the edge of the Borghese Park.
Three out of seven kings of Rome were Etruscan, the level of their civilization was
outstanding.
Everybody is lining and crowding the Vatican museums with knowing this jewel.

Excellent artifacts and it's not crowded
Jun 2019
This is an excellent museum with a LOT of artifacts. You could spend all day here reading about and looking at the tons of museum pieces. There were some really fantastic pieces. Best of all, the museum is not crowded, perhaps because it's some ways away from the main downtown area of Rome and you have to take a tram/bus and walk to get there. I probably saw only about a dozen or so other people the whole 3 hours I was there.

If you want a quite museum with lots to see and learn about a local Roman people (the Etruscan), then this is the place. There are toilets and a gift shop.
