Not a must see, but if you are into museums then worth it. The outside structures and architecture is what Siena is all about.

One relaxed place to go to and feel the old treasures and history of Siena. Paintings, architecture, sculptures... its all there. The relaxed way things are on display give the welcome feeling of intimacy.

The museum was interesting in parts. Seemed to be displays being rearranged or set up. The section about the recent earthquake in Umbria was very interesting

This is a must for any visitor to Siena. Extraordinary. A class act of a museum. I take groups to Siena and this is always at the top of the list. No one is ever disappointed in Museo Archeologico.
