As befits a town that has hewn the precious rock from nearby quarries since Etruscan times, Volterra is the proud possessor of an alabaster museum. On the ground floor are contemporary creations while on the two upper floors are choice examples from Etruscan times onwards as well as a re-created artisan's workshop.

The museum shares the same building as the pinacoteca.
