  • This small museum encloses the altar of Ratchis and the baptistery octagonal, which alone are worth the visit.

  • This museum-open also with a combined ticket of € 9 along with the Longobard Temple and the Archeological Museum-offers a collection not huge, but of great interest especially thanks to two masterpieces of Lombard art exposed in the Hall on the ground floor, the altar of Ratchis and baptistery of Callisto. Notable, in my opinion, especially the first, for those interested to discover a style very different from the figurative religious art and classical world as from that developed between the late middle ages and Renaissance: the faces, enigmatic and blanks without any pretense of realism, seem to almost disappear among the draperies of the vestments and other decorative items. Of interest maybe slightly less, but still significant, other works on display in the other rooms, like the Noli Me Tangere by Pordenone, or vestments (including a vast veil embroidered with a crucifixion) belonged to the Cathedral of Cividale.

  • The Museum is really small but have no hurry to check them out. For us the most interesting part was the first, the room as you enter where there are the most relevant, Lombard decorations including the famous altar of Ratchis, a masterpiece in itself, but is enhanced through a media projection that lasts a few minutes but that shows the work back in time reconstructing the original colors. Do not be discouraged if the projection is no match: sit on the bench in front of the Altar and wait a few minutes ... the magic will come true! The rest of the Museum left us rather indifferent.

  • Vast hall with wide collection of mosaics and epitaphs
  • To mention in particular the screening of colored lights on the altar of Ratchis: a real blast from the past.
