    A museum with wonderful collections of which single painting, tapestry, ceramics, armour, chalice or manuscript (and there are quite a few), it's worth visiting. Definitely there can get bored during the visit. The staff has a courtesy rarely found. Highly recommended a visit to those of the trade, you learn something.

    Contains works of art by various artists of the ' 500 and 600, attractive tapestries, as well as pottery, but the treasure of Gonzaga and especially the 4 defensive armor, first held in the niches of the sanctuary of the Madonna delle Grazie at Curtatone in 1400 that made them wore effective protection during battle.

    It's the usual Diocesan Museum, poor and a bit dull, but retains its 15th century four full armor of the most important in the world, and I think only for dating. A lover cannot miss, but usually those dealing with this particular branch already knows ...

  • Little known by the general public, this museum contains the most important collection of 15th-century Italian composite Armor. Reference point for fans and scholars from around the world. Only pity the complete lack in the enhancement of the collection, absent in lighting and materials.
