No idea why, but we were the only visitors to this museum. That is a shame as it was very good. Reading the translations in to English could be hard work, due to small print, but at least they were there. Well worth a visit.

Start with museum located in old abbey located next to a Roman amphitheater and add a lot of rare Etruscan artifacts. This museum is a gem. Especially for anyone interested in items from Etruscan era. We spent a wonderful afternoon here and highly recommend it

We really enjoyed visiting this museum, for which you need 2-3 hours. The ground floor has a stunning display of Etruscan artifacts and writing, explaining how the Etruscans used writing in funerary, religious and commercial contexts. Also on the ground floor is an extensive display...More

A much bigger and more interesting collection than we'd expected, in a historically evocative setting (a former monastery built onto the side of the city's ancient Roman arena). Hardly anyone goes, and it's a bargain (get the combination ticket for this, the Vasari house and...More

This was an easy museum to visit without the crowds of summer tourism. The collections are impressive examples of early art and history.

The museum sheds light on the Arezzo history and it's Archaeology. Nicely organized and not too overloaded with items. Worth a visit. Wonderful display of terra sigillata pottery.
