After ancient remains were discovered on the grounds, the monastery was converted into a museum for the artifacts' display. View Roman houses that were excavated from beneath the orchard, as well as Bronze Age artifacts that were scattered around the area. You can continue your tour into Romanesque and Renaissance Italy in the basilica, where frescoes painted by Romanino grace the walls.

  • We were very happy with the visit to this museum but needed to have much more time, it will mean that we will be back to visit it more calmly.

  • Great Museum, well organized. See why here is Santa Maria in Solario with the cross of Desire; the monastery of the Holy Saviour and last but not least, the wonderful Domus Aurea

  • We vivitato this beautiful Museum on the occasion of the night of culture, taking advantage of the free admission. Although we visited school children, a visit more knowledgeable allowed us to appreciate it immensely. Curated and wide exposure, loved the "Nun's choir" and the domus. Definitely worth the visit!

  • bellissime mostre
  • Superb ! Reserve at least three hours for a proper visit
  • I was simply blown away by this museum. It exceeded my expectations in terms of the amount of art work from pre-Roman times to more recently. It was well worth the price of admission which is 10 euros for adult. This museum included works such as winged victory, house from Roman times, as well as the Nuns Choir, Basicilia de San Salvatore. In addition, since the Tosio Martinengo is being renovated, Santa Guilia features some of the works from that museum (i.e. works by Raphael) as well as two other art exhibits were all included.
  • Hosts exhibitions of great interest and artistic content, the last dedicated to Christo and Jeanne-Claude at the event Waters Projects in Sulzano. Museum organized with qualified and available.

  • The place is neat and clean, definitely interesting and charming, the staff is not informed, they know nothing of what is exposed or where things are. Apart from a girl who knew how to show us the way, the rest of the staff is not up to par. Find the locations is somewhat complicated due to the lack of signage and lack of preparation of those who work there/is voluntary. As paths I recommend going because it truly deserve, but go documented to get your saw that none of the employees (unless you want to pay more money for help) will say something, even on where to go.
