  • Went to the Etruscan exhibition. Superb. And the explanations were in English as well as Castellano and Valenciano. Well laid out and very comprehensive.

  • Museum charges A LOT per person AND you have to go in individually.
  • A delightful, inciteful gem..stunning audiovisual and incredible lighting and commentary. I was struck by how far museums have come in last 50 years..extraordinary efforts to highlight the human aspects of all the eras featured. It was a rare privilege to see such masterful pieces, particularly in the Etruscan special exhibit. All for 3€(!) and I was allowed to take photos. Truly an extraordinary afternoon immersion.
