The Archaeological Museum houses Etruscan finds of great importance. Among others, the bronze statue "Chimera", which represents an animal partly lion, partly goat, partly snake, and was found in 1533 in Arezzo. Other highlights are the "Arringatore" (speakers), the "Minerva" and the urns made of terracotta and travertine from Volterra, as well as the Greek ceramic vases with black figures. The museum is well known for its large Egyptian collection, the second largest in Italy after Turin.
Until March 2019, there is a special exhibition named "L’Arte di donare. Nuove acquisizioni del Museo Archeologico Nazionale".  The exhibition presents a collection of works of art and ancient craftsmanship. All works that further enrich the art collections that make the National Archaeological Museum of Florence the largest and most important archaeological museum in Italy to the north of Rome.
