Overview

It is hosted in the fortress of the 1200, which was converted into a castle by the Orsini family in the 1400. There are displayed some of the artifacts from the Etruscan Necropolis of Monte Abatone, Banditaccia, Bufalareccia and Sorbo. In 2013 the new media path has been opened, and it is developed in four sections. Thanks to the installation of four 3D projectors it is possible to understand the history of the most famous art crafts of the collection. At the beginning the visitor is welcomed by a introductory video with the voice of Piero Angela describing the peculiarities of the museum. The works of art have a time spanning over nine centuries. Thanks to the multimedia animation, we can see the decorations of vases better and renewed, ancient myths, everyday life scenes, sport and religious cults are easy to be understood, the history of the object is understandable. it is the concept of the "Alive Museum" where the interaction between the visitor and the object is inverted, the museum is describing itself relating to the public in a unique new way, using new technologies and an easier accessible language.

A very good and beautiful collection of mostly ceramics, but other Etruscan art and every day objects. Highly recommended if you just been to the Necropolis. One hour well investided.

Get a guide for this museum as there is so much that needs an explanation to fully appreciate the Etruscans. The museum is not large but needs time to do it properly.

Located in a castle just off the piazza, this museum has beautiful displays of Etruscan artifacts. Much of the explanation is in Italian. Worth visiting and plan to spend one to two hours here. Perhaps best visited AFTER seeing the necropolis.

This is a tiny museum in the heart of Cerveteri. While it does have some interesting items on exhibit, if you missed it, it would not be then end of the world!
