The museum is well organized and has an amazing amount of Etruscan artifacts (and some Roman). It is easy to visit as it is quiet and probably not very busy most of the time (we were there on a Sunday and were mostly by ourselves)....More

The museum is housed in a handsome and vast cloister of the Dominican church below the upper town. It has an enormous collection of Etruscan cinerary urns (containers for the ashes of cremated people) not all of them beautiful but an amazing number of them....More

A wealth of material on Umbrians, Etruscans and the Hellenic influence that underlies Perugia could make this museum a real star -- if, a big if -- it were arranged and focused on interested visitors rather than on professional anthropologists and students of Italian history.

If you are interested in learning more about the Etruscans (and I am), this the place for you. If you are just a casual tourist, then perhaps this is perhaps not your thing. It has more Etruscan funerary urns than you can shake a stick...More

This museum had many amazing artifacts. We especially appreciated the Cutu Tomb, which enabled us to see how the funerary urns and tomb goods would have been arranged. There's an amazing skeleton of a prehistoric bear, Etruscan glass bowls with superb craftsmanship and interesting collections...More

The Etruscan finds are of incomparable beauty. Even the collection of amulets is very attractive. The historical artifacts of other ages are very interesting and very well described.

This museum presents a comprehensive and accessible survey of the archaeology of the Umbrian region. It is beautifully presented and well documented. It is definitely worth a visit.

When I told him we were going to the Archeological Museum on our outing he said "over my dead body". I said there was a riconstruction of an Etruscan tomb found unviolated in Perugia and therefore very important. After visiting the underground riproduction and seeing...More

We really enjoyed the Etruscan relics. Well displayed and the walk down to the museo and then along to the medieval gardens is a nice way to spend a morning or afternoon.
