NATIONAL ARCHEOLOGICAL MUSEUM OF UMBRIA

written by Chiara Guzzetti

Ostuni città bianca

During my trip to Umbria, I had the chance to visit many archeological sites and museum. The National Archeological Museum of Perugia left me with a pleasant surprise.

This museum is loaded with Etruscan antiquities displayed in a simple manner. The antiquities are remarkable, but the displays are not elaborate. It seems that the budget for this museum was quite limited, but it remains one of my fondest memories of Perugia.

In one hallway, Etruscan carved stone urns are lined up with little fanfare; I found this refreshingly unpretentious. The antiquities are all of local origin. Apparently, the rich history of Umbria has provided a bumper crop of ancient artifacts.
