  • small enough Museum featuring a nice a bit disparate items, including weapons temporary exposure is reduced

  • the Museum deserves 5 stars for location and for its contents, but it is in my opinion very disorganized, many message boards are dusty and lacks almost completely the signs to navigate between the different areas of the Museum. Part a staff did not know about an event that took place in the Museum. Exceptional instead the guided tour to the exhibition of "the allegory of sleep" by Paolo Cova, who pointed out with great skill the masterpiece by Algardi.

  • The Museum is located in Palazzo Ghisilardi 15th century. Visit really exciting. The exhibition is well articulated. Many objects. The imposing statue of Pope Boniface VIII. Noteworthy bust of Gregory XV made of bronze by Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Of particular interest is the large collection of sepulchral monuments. Also stone slabs depicting scenes. Among the exhibits there are books with miniatures expertly and beautifully made. There is an important and extensive collection of weapons and armor. Also ceramics, ivories, decorative glass, treasures of inestimable beauty. Recommend a visit

  • Great museum of medieval fine arts. There is small but excellent armory full of West European and Turkish arms and armor. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light.
  • Excellent museum with vast amounts of items from the Medieval and Renassance times.
  • Excellent exhibition for the lovers of swords.
  • Lovely small medieval museum with great sculptures and arms. Most labels are in Italian (it is Italy after all) but the most notable artefacts have descriptions on placards in Italian and English.
  • Collection rather small, I expected more Gothic artifacts but most from early Renaissance.
