A beautiful collection, housed in a villa in the Borghese Gardens. The Sarcophagus of the Spouses is the unequalled highlight, but there is much more to appreciate. It’s not crowded so you will have a respite from the more well known Roman spots. To get there try a cab from the Piazza del Popolo cab stand, the ride should be about 5-6 Euros. But once having oriented yourself getting there, walk back at the end of your visit. You’ll skirt the park and end up on the very interesting Via Flaminia. It has restaurants for a full meal and bars for an aperitif.

Collection is unique and able to shed a light on the Etruscan culture but also on its commerces with Greece, thus being also very interesting the relationship between Etruscans and Greeks.
Location is very interesting, in a former Pope residence and at the border of the nicest park in Rome.
Personnel is of rare kindness and likes to help the visitor, the information/reception desk is particularly helpful and available. Same for the ticket office.
You have the impression to be welcome and that they like their job. Pretty impressive and unique!

...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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
