The museum is named after Isidoro Falchi, an important archeologist who discovered the Etruscan city of Vetulonia in the 19th century. The museum was first called the Antiquarium di Vetulonia, and was located on the first floor of an elementary school. However, the Antiquarium was closed in the early-1800s because it would later be enlarged.
Re-opened in June 2000, the museum is significant because it contains a wealth of precious artifacts, and also holds an archive of documents on the various cultural phases of the ancient city. The archive serves to give added information on the digs, ruins and necropolis in Vetulonia.
