The Museum is divided into two main areas which are “the city of the living” and “the city of the dead”.
The “city of the living” hosts reconstructions of villages and houses, a small village dating back to the final Bronze Age, with an educational model of a gabled house.
You enter the “city of the dead”, by means of a hollow road that leads to the Necropolis of the Gradone, here there are various types of Etruscan tombs, dated VII-VI century BC, continuing further you arrive at the Necropolis of San Giovanni, dated VI -III century BC
