Sacred art museum next to the duomo is best appreciated by those with specific interest in religion, as not all of it is really old history. Usually part of your combination ticket, but skip it if you are short on time.

We were in San Gimignano quite some years ago and wanted to visit the cathedral again. However, we were surprised to find out that tourists have to pay an entrance fee nowadays. Like all San Gimignano, also this attraction has become a tourist trap. One...More

If there had been a better conection with the marvelous Cathedral Building next door, this would have been a better museum, as it was it wwas largely a collection of old peieces that are of interest only to the expert.

Visited with my family this museum - nothing memorable ... just the expensive entry fee. You really must be interested in sacral art in order to enjoy it.

The art displayed here is gorgeous! The Madonna of the Roses was especially beautiful. It's a low key museum, very calm and serene.

You get a free handset with your ticket, explaining what to look at. Look out for the delicate Madonna of the Roses

The museum pales in comparison in comparison to the basilica and did not really capture our interest. We spent only about 15 mins here so it's not really worthwhile for us.

We were a little disappointed with this. Not very much to see and a little repetitive. As a non catholic, it didn't make a lot of sense to me - i didn't know what some of the pieces were. However, some of the pieces were...More
