This must be on everyone's list of essential places to visit in Pisa. Housed in former monastery buildings the works of art are outstanding and beautifully displayed. We spent an afternoon here and were totally absorbed. Wonderful.

This museum was amazing, very easy to find. Don’t be fooled but the exterior there are many hidden gems inside. We were the only visitor it was really great to be able to get close to all the exhibits. The gallery of the painted crucifixes...More

Strange museum with lots and lots and lots of pictures of Jesus. If you're into that, fair play, but don't go out of your way to visit. Let us in for free though which was ok.

This museum recommended by concierge at my hotel. It's amazing to be nose to nose with statues and paintings centuries old. The informative brochure provides a guide for 'The Museum in one Hour' which maps a tour through the centuries. I had to look at...More

This turned out to be an unexpected treasure and well worth the entrance fee (5 Euros per person). We were very lucky in that apart from the final gallery we seemed to be the only visitors and could get really close to the exhibits. Everything...More

We were alerted to this museum by the TV programme 'Italy Unpacked' and were not disappointed. The €5 entrance fee is a bargain for the privilege of what was effectively a private viewing, given that we saw no other visitors while we were there. The...More
