  • Interesting and great art museums, really, over the years has improved and increased cultural offer. Staff very courteous and helpful. Excellent descriptions of the works. Ideal Museum model, involves offering a sense of satisfaction with the amount of time spent among the wonders. The very informative visit, requires two hours minimum, but even three. Worth the trip to Brescia. A special mention to the domus romana. Hope to return.

  • Outstanding museum complex that includes archeological remains from the ancient Roman city along with multiple Christian environments variously dispersed across the monastic complex all organized thematically to describe the timeline of the city.
  • Excellent museum of medieval fine arts. It demonstrates stunning collections of medieval artifacts and frescoes of XV-XVII centuries. Another must see place at Brescia.
  • It is a nice and big really big museum, prepare your self for at least 2 hours there so if you are in a hurry don't visit it and prefer a day when you have the time
  • Excellent museum of the archaeology and history of Brescia and its environs. Built in a former monastic complex it features a marvellous Lombard church as well as the beautiful later chapel of Santa Maria in Solaria. Other highlights include the Manerbio falere - Iron Age horse ornaments - along with two well preserved Roman domus, some fantastic Roman portrait heads from statues, many Roman mosaics and lots of Lombard (early medieval) objects. If you have any interest in archaeology and history, the museum is a must-see!
  • Fabulous facility. It's wonderful to see history preserved so tastefully. On the day of our visit the temperature was 37 degrees outdoors and the air conditioning was very welcomed. An onsite cafe.would be a great addition.
