9/2018
If you are ever in Arezzo,Italy you must go to this museum. It has a place like the forum in Rome were the galiators use to perform, but on a smaller scale and a plus for their museum which is very inexpensive. You can spend hours inside with so much to see. get there and be amazed!

The extensive and great collection
9/2018 • Pariskunnat
The museum is located in the former Convent of Saint Bernard, built on the ruins of the Roman amphitheater. It holds a brilliant and extensive collection of the archeological findings in the area. There are some really beautiful and important works of art and artefacts on display and I can highly recommend the visit to any history buff and fan.

Just a Brilliant Collection
10/2018 • Kaverit
Spent two hours here this morning admiring the remains of an old Roman" Anfitearto Romano" colloseum adjacent to the old Abbey hosting the collection.
The first significant input was that some of the Etruscan artifacts dated back to the eighth century BC. There was one display with some lovely gold ear rings with intricate working from this era - they were just stunning. The other interesting feature was that some of the bronze pieces were dated at fourth century BC - where did the metal come from and the associated technology. The Indians were mining and smelting in about the same time with the zinc coming from Rajasthan (Zawa, Rajpura Dariba and Rampura Agucha). Were there links?
Some of the pottery was just beautiful with intricate black paintings.
Thoroughly recommend.

Empty, of visitors, but very good
6/2018 • Pariskunnat
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.

The museum itself was quite interesting, featuring some beautiful pottery, skillfully restored, featuring interesting decoration.
There was so much to see, but for someone who does not understand the language, not all information was understood.
From the museum, there was an excellent view of the 'Anfiteatro Romano' which needed not explanation, and certainly stirred the imagination.
Archeaologists were uncovering some areas near the old walls, so there is still a lot of work to be done in that respect.

Great assortment of Etruscan artifacts
11/2017 • Pariskunnat
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

A very unique museumq
11/2017 • Pariskunnat
This museum has an exceptional number of items collected from the Etruscan and Roman ruins around the the city of Arezzo. It is located adjacent to the ruins of a Roman amphiteater which adds to its uniqueness. There are two floors of exhibits dating back to several centuries B.C. The quality and intricacy of some of the pieces show the exceptional skills of artisans centuries ago. I found it to be a very enlightening experience and well-worth the time spent in the museum. The entrance fee is modest compared to the educational value.

A very good museum, grest display of Etruscan artifacts
10/2017 • Pariskunnat
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 of terra sigillata, the ancient red gloss Roman tableware. The exhibit turned out to be fascinating, especially since Arezzo was the centre for terra sigillata production. The first floor is less modern, with a large display of ancient Greek and southern Italic/Etruscan pottery. Most remarkable is a display of bronze figurines prepared very professionally by a class of senior high school students. Inspiring! Also don’t miss the tiny portrait incised on gold leaf and set between glass. It’s extraordinary. The museum is free the first Sunday each month.
