A small museum near the Cathedral but well worth a visit to see paintings by Signorelli and the Annuciation by the Beato Angelico, with the beautiful angel with the red dress and blond hair

I don't mean to offend, but the luscious paintings of Baby Jesus with Popes or Cardinals is just wrong. The paintings at the museum are fantastic.
