Museo Civico information
On the other side of town, this museum is housed in the cloister and nunnery adjoining Santa Maria della Verità, and features more Etruscan goodies, as well as curious fake Etruscan antiquities created in the 15th century by Annius of Viterbo, a monk and forger trying to give Viterbo extra kudos. There's also an art gallery, the highlight of which is Sebastiano del Piombo's Pietà.
