  • I visited the National Gallery of Umbria. Let me start by saying that the collection is beautiful and valuable, the set up is treated (arrangement of works, illumination, ventilation system). The bathrooms are clean. Overall it's a gallery curated worth seeing and knowing. However during the visit I noticed negative aspects important and only to these is due to my low rating. 1. Are completely absent guardians of Hall and security staff. The rooms are approximately 20, in all these I have never seen a single person to supervise the works (there was only one lady at the entrance to control tickets). I could quietly draw mustaches all Madonnas and nobody was going to stop me. 2. The works are displayed completely unprotected, there are glasses, there are no alarms, there are cords that prevent to approach and touch everything. 3. There are no guided tours of the Gallery, unless by prior arrangement. If a person decides the same day to go and visit the Gallery, doesn't find anything, visitors are left on their own, left to wander the halls looking vacantly works. Upon exiting the feeling that remains is that of having made a superficial visit, he had seen "many saints and Madonnas", but without being able to contextualize the historical period, artistic styles, culture etc. A real shame. At least on Sunday might make sense to organize guided tours (for example a at 10, at 11.30, at 15 etc. ..), the family routes with special activities for children (which currently run through the halls). During the summer or peak season, it might be interesting to organize tours in English, French, etc.. In conclusion, there are initiatives that are bringing people to the Gallery, they discover, learn and appreciate its cultural heritage (and by that I do not intend to organize courses of yoga at the Museum "and other idiocies like). In conclusion, we cannot abandon the main Museum of Perugia without value and bring out its full potential. I hope that soon all these aspects can be improved, I would certainly visit the Gallery more willingly.

  • there is an elevator to enter the museum on the third floor. Wondering if this one great invention can cope with a flud of tourists. Inside you will find big rooms with poor itinary indications. Only ...  more »
  • Be in Perugia and not visit the National Gallery is like going to Rome and not seeing any Museum. Pictorial journey simply unique and in a very usable for space and for placement of the paintings. Worth visiting.

  • Quite the jewel. Great museum if italian art history. On the peak of August it was pretty quiet and comfortable to walk around. Highly recommended!
  • Extraordinary collection of artworks organized well in the sizable gallery space.
  • This is one of the best art gallery we have ever visited in all our years of travel. The paintings are amazing mainly of a religious nature dating from the 11th century onwards set in 40 rooms, so be prepared to spend at least four hours to see it all. A good tip is to buy the guide book when you buy your tickets, so you can follow the paintings in each room. Don't miss this place if you visit Perugia, you will not be disappointed .
