This page is on the museum itself, for the architectural history of the house see Villa Giulia.
The Villa was built by the popes and remained their property until 1870 when, in the wake of the Risorgimento and the demise of the Papal States, it became the property of the Kingdom of Italy. The Museum was founded in 1889 as part of the same nationalistic movement, with the aim of collecting together all the pre-Roman antiquities of Latium, southern Etruria and Umbria belonging to the Etruscan and Faliscan civilizations, and has been housed in the villa since the beginning of the 20th century.
Other remains held are:
- The Etruscan-Phoenician Pyrgi Tablets.
- The Apollo of Veii.
- The Cista Ficoroni.
- A reconstructed frieze displaying Kreugas eating the brain of his enemy.
