  • I visited just last Saturday the picture gallery and Archaeological Museum in the place which was the site of the convent of the Eremitani. I read with surprise on other reviews of the rudeness of the staff, even the nearby Scrovegni Chapel: I thought it was rather exquisite courtesy and very helpful and accommodating towards visitors! many have told me to be volunteers and you have to wait sometimes two years before being called ... always for the volunteers. Paradoxical country is Italy: who works with passion and dedication, zero recognition in terms of salary plus a long wait ... who instead applying the annuity (and now they want to change nome...ma the substance remains the same ...) other treatment ... mah, who realizes something is good! But let things more stately. The Archaeological Museum welcomes you with the small but interesting coroplastic section where stands for importance and beauty a crater Apulian mascheroni dating to 340 Av. Christ around. Then a splendid specimen of lebes gamikos (wedding Bowl) very common in Apulian décor reminiscent of the late production double rite. Laconic production is represented by a black-painted kylix dating from the third quarter of the 6th century BC. CR. when Sparta had then become purely and solely military power already. In the other sections is the skeleton of a horse and rider buried together and dating from the fifth century BC. Christ found in a necropolis in the area where other horses were buried and the funerary stele of a Centurion, Minucius Lorarius of legio MARTIA dating to the 1st century BC. Christ. According to my studies (but I could of course be wrong, I don't presume to other scholars who believe themselves infallible) might be the FOURTEENTH Legion GEMINA Augustan training, initially stationed in Illyricum and then on the Rhine at Mogontiacum (Rhine fleet Headquarters also) that he subsequently with Claudius's conquest of Britain in 43 A.D. and contributed, along with other legions , tame the terrible rebellion of the Iceni Queen Boudicca in 61 A.D. and this was considered the best Legion of Empire to the point that Nero the named MARTIA VICTRIX. If that were the case, dating should be postponed to the first century A.D. because only then appears that name and also because the clothing of the deceased seems more suited to this part of the previous century than to the conservation status of the stele is good, like that of the Landesmuseum in Bonn that recalls another Centurion, Marcus Coelius of Bononia, the EIGHTEENTH Legion who perished in NICE VARY mentioned in the inscription. Then there is the funerary monument of Volumnii, a family of ancient Etruscan origins, but present with many of its representatives in the Paduan territory. The inscription on the base, along with the name of clients reads the acronym H M E N S = hoc monumentum non sequetur eredem, namely that this tomb, because he had family, was to be reserved for only the clients and their direct descendants, but also not to their heirs. Finally I hit a statue of Roman matron from Aquileia, reminiscent of one of the two ' Ercolanine ' of the Albertinum in Dresden: only the head does not convince me, because even old, doesn't seem to be relevant to the statue. If I get some space I'll write something about the wonderful picture gallery.

  • We visited the Museum and the Scrovegni Chapel. The website compelled to book a visit to the Chapel, without indicating that it was not strictly mandatory, nor that there was a possibility of making a single ticket at a cost less than the sum of the two separate inputs (more than possible on site). Extreme rudeness and disorganization of the staff: the site indicated the obligation to get x ticket collection 30 ' before visiting hours, only to be seen badly by staff because "too much" in advance (one employee insisted that we would have to wait until 10 minutes before their entrance, his colleague said 5 '). Obligation to leave the wardrobe every tiniest purse. Only plus point is obviously the work of Giotto; the Museum is poorly organized and predict anachronistic routes than the exhibits (first the paleovenetian, then the Roman, Egyptian, Greek, Etruscan and Roman carnelian again)

  • Excellent museum. Unfortunately it could do with some more english descriptions for the exhibits.
  • This is not only the archeological museum but also large painted art gallery.
  • Excellent! A hub Museum organized very intelligently. Arena, archaeological museum, the eremitani and Scrovegni Chapel besides the collections to the adjacent Palazzo Zuckerman left me spellbound and amazed. Amazed why from Italian are accustomed to sloppiness ciabattona that usually pervades archaeological museums such as the nearby Verona, while here I found a welcome worthy of its name and a book store. Excellent view on Tintoretto that gave an extra touch to the already excellent impression that made the municipal museums. Congratulations.

  • One of the most complete and museums with collections well exposed all over the Veneto. Too little known, but alone is worth the visit to Padua. Well done for us disabled.

  • Museu bem extenso com relíquias, pinturas belíssimas e famosas e o crucifixo de Donatello. Tem esculturas e pinturas de várias épocas e artistas. O ingresso vale para a Capela, o museu e o museu de artes decorativas de frente à rua. Reserve tempo para ver tudo.
