It's insane that this is currently listed as the #85 thing to do in Bologna! What more do people want? This is a lovely museum in the Palazzo Communale, right off the main square. It has a small but beautiful collection, some of it displayed in stunning period rooms. Best of all is the recently-restored Sala Urbana, a room filled floor-to-ceiling with vibrant coats of arms. The staff are very helpful and will show you an amazing view of le due torre from the very last room of the museum.

This museum is in on the Piazza Maggiore in the City hall second floor. It is not too big, but it has a lot of treasures. Worth to visit it.

This museum was included with our Bologna Card, which covered a walking tour and several of Bologna's museums. We practically had the museum to ourselves! While this is not a museum filled with world-renowned pieces, it was a wonderful showcase of Bolognese artists. There were lovely paintings and sculptures from artists I wasn't familar with. Almost as much as the art itself, we loved touring the building that housed it, part of the city hall complex on the Piazza Maggiore - not to mention great views of the piazza from the museum windows. It's not huge, but part of the appeal for me was that this museum was so manageable. I definitely think any stay in Bologna should include a visit here.
