  • I went to 8/2017. It is a museum has been fresco's background (= Sinope). This is a new facility located on the South side of the Piazza del Duomo. Works great, picture so not colored yet. Turn on three of the Baptistry and the camposanto and the ticket.

  • It is a small museum with the sketches of the frescoes of the Camposanto, but it is not worth entering. It was boring and hardly could be nothing...

  • This is a very interesting museum with frescoes (sinopies) of various paintings presented in an area of two floors. You need a ticket to get in (it is included to the combined basic pack 3 monument pass). The museum is very well set, modern design, large spaces, areas to sit, look and study the artwork. On the ground floor there are a couple of screenings. The one is about the content of the museum which is unfortunately only in Italian while the other presents the story/restoration process of the leaning tower. Very informative overall. Was really disappointed by the staff. Bored to death, talking to each other verRRRry loudly, so I couldn't listen to the video narrations!
  • On the face of it, the contents of this museum might appear too specifically art historical, but the amazing glimpse into the production process of the frescoes decorating the galleries of the Camposanto is worthwhile. Not only do the sinopia panels reveal the hand of the artist but some of the details are best viewed only in the sinopia format.
  • As previous reviews have mentioned not a great of content but what there is is first class & explained well also a good place to escape the throng outside for a half an hour or so.
  • Excellent sinopies in that museum. You have to buy a ticket to get in. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light.
  • Nothing much. Most of the paintings are damaged and not restored.
