Leftovers alone art such as Guido Reni and Bassano, Correggio, by Guercino, Solorio, Tintoretto, Veronese, El Greco, Botticelli and Cosme Tura, Cima da Conegliano, and Andrea del Sarto. The drawings such as Velasquez is from. Museum entrance of Etruscan and Roman archaeological excavation goods aisle.

  • 4 floors of the building gathered in the Museum. Ticket Office was on the 4 floor. Besides the painting exhibit such as sculpture, pottery, musical instruments, was impressive.

  • The Estense Gallery of national interest not only presents fine artwork by artists such as Tintoretto, Guercino, Begarelli and the famous portrait of Duke made by Velasquez. One tip is to visit the galleria Estense with the help of a guide who are really up to.

  • Amazing collection. Worth the trip just for this place. Superb Hebrew language collection. Small but amazing!!!
  • Quality, rarity, paintings from the 13th century through the 18th century. Friendly, warmth from the associates. Well worth the 6 Euro fee for those outside the European Union. A very old collection that has aged beyond beauty. Superb. Do not miss the Gallery Estense. Check hours in Italy, they are there for amore not the money. An easy walk on the main road, Via Emilia from the tower in the center of Modena. The entrance is too the left. On viale Vi Veneto.
  • Wonderful gallery in Modena's centre. Showcasing a massive variety of art with outstanding artistic skill, it's just a shame that it doesn't get international media attention. The statue of Francesco I d'Este (pictured) makes the visit worth it, which will be cheap anyways (under 18s have free entry!).
  • Exquisite collection and well curated.
  • The Gallery maintains the art parimonio of the Dukes of Este from collections at one time kept in the Este Castle of Ferrara from the late 13th century until the last century austro Este Dukes of Modena acquisitions, a city that was the capital of the the Duchy after Ferrara from 1598 to 1859. Stand out among the other in chronological order the Modenese Guido Mazzoni Renaissance terracotta works of sculptors and Antonio Begarelli, the canvases of "primitive" between Barnaba da Modena and Tomaso da Modena, the works of Niccolò dell'Abbate, the paintings of the Venetian school from Cima da Conegliano in Veronese and Tintoretto, the bust of Francesco i d'Este portrait by Bernini, the same Duke by Velasquez, Emilian School of the 17th century works between Carracci, Guido Reni and Guercino, collections of musical instruments, bronze, coins and typically mirabilia. An immense heritage that can boast of being one of the largest among the art collections of the ancient Italian houses.
