  • The picture gallery of the Museo Civico Ala Ponzone is housed in the 16th-century palazzo Affaitati. A recent project has led to the opening of the Hall of the Sinker that contains the precious inlaid wardrobe, a masterpiece of Renaissance osmia, executed for the Cathedral of Cremona between 1477 and 1480 by the Mantuan artist Giovanni Maria da Piadena, known as il Platina. The Museum also houses the rooms of Music which is the collection of historical instruments of Carlo Alberto Capone, one of the most important collections of stringed instruments for quality, rarity and conservation status of its constituent instruments. The exhibition is on four floors, the ticket fee is 7 euros, better check the opening times.

  • Awesome stradivari collection. Must see.
  • Very interesting place and city. Lot of music related statues and work shops, to include violin builders.
  • Very nice and interesting, contains paintings and sculptures from the middle ages to the twentieth century; at the entrance there is a small collection of archaeological finds. The Museum was founded in the 19th century by Marquis Sigismondo Ala Ponzone, who donated to the city of Cremona his entire art collection. The most famous works are the paintings by Caravaggio and Arcimboldo, but deserve attention even the blades of Bembo, Genovesino and the wonderful inlaid wardrobe Sinker. On the ground floor, at the bottom of the garden, you can also visit the Museum of natural history.

  • Very well organized, clean and well maintained to be a provincial town. Merits a visit.

  • Small but packed with a long history not only scientific but also human.
