Housed inside a neoclassical building, the National Archaeological Museum of Chiusi brings together numerous artefacts unearthed from local excavations, especially ancient canopic jars and sarcophagi. The display is laid out in chronological and thematic order with strong ties to the Chiusi district. The exhibition covers finds from the Metal Ages to the Orientalising period of the Etruscan production and then moves on to the Chiusi production period of the 7th and 6th century BC. The local section houses finds from excavations in the Petriolo area and from the Chiusi tombs with items dating from the 7th to the 3rd century BC followed by a section on Lombard art. The final display cases house finds from the Paolozzi and Mieli Servadio collections which were the basis of the museum display.
