The Museum houses an invaluable collection of Etruscan ceramics, bronzes and gold pieces. The layout winds from the underground “Hypogeum” floor to the main floor, or “Noble” level, two storeys above, moving past works of modern and contemporary art, plus more than 200 artefacts of the Etruscan collection.

Access to temporary exhibitions, set up within the permanent layout, is included in the price of the entry ticket.

The Garden Pavilion holds temporary exhibitions that are open free of charge.


Available at the Museum’s ticket office, the free audio-guide, “Fondazione Luigi Rovati”.


The application is a useful tool for all phases of a visit: before, during and after. It contains all necessary information on the Museum, and can also be used to purchase tickets or memberships. Once inside the Museum, it becomes an audio-guide, leading visitors through the exhibition spaces while providing in-depth information on the most notable works, plus updates on the Foundation’s activities and events.


Available in the languages: Italian and English


The Fondazione Luigi Rovati promotes access to knowledge by making every effort to overcome physical, social and cultural barriers through partnerships with professionals and non-profit associations, all in the interest of developing layouts and tools which facilitate access to spaces and greater familiarity with the works.

Available starting from autumn of 2022:

A free guide, “Museo per tutti” (“Everybody’s Museum”), has been developed by the L’abilità non-profit association, with the support of the De Agostini Foundation.

A tactile museum visit for the sight-impaired, designed with the Istituto Italiano Ciechi (Italian Institute for the Blind), reproduces a series of artefacts in 3D while also providing a guide in braille.
