This museum gives you a very good picture of the etruscans, those so interesting ancient people. The museum is not too big but ccontains a very good collection of vases, statues, household goods, jewellery etc. not forgetting the burial artefacts.

Very nice cozy museum chiefly on one floor (and smaller basement) full of ancient Etruscan artifacts, also of interest for the visual confrontation you can have between Greek vases and Etruscan rip offs....along with many unique pieces like fibulaes, ear rings, mirrors of the era,...More

We traveled to Chiusi to return a rental and then catch the train, but arrived a day early and found Chiusi most delightful. The Museo Archeologico Nazionale contained artifacts unique to the area. Made us realize just how much must be still buried throughout Italy.

In the quiet of Chiusi there is this excellent museum with a vast array of exhibits concerning the life and death of Etruscans, from c. 7th century BC to 3rd century. Exceptional sculpted heads, animals, and funerary monuments with family groups.

This was a fabulous little museum filled with Etruscan artifacts. It was very well curated. Most of the exhibits had English cards as well as Italian cards which was very helpful. There's a lovely mosaic downstairs. I left with a renewed interest in the Etruscans.
