  • It is a museum that pays visit to first between artistic attractions that we can admire in Piazza dei Miracoli. Here are shown the sinopie, namely the preparatory drawings of frescoes in the Camposanto. In fact in some cases remains not much to see but we must understand that as the same frescoes have not only endured the wear and tear of time but also the effects of bombing during World War II. Definitely one of the best preserved is related to theological Cosmography by Piero di Puccio.

  • If you are into historical restorations of paintings then you might enjoy this place. I just wish they put in more descriptions and texts around to convey the history behind the artwork.
  • Maybe it's good for those who study or work with art...
  • Interesting to view the way the paintings were done. Swing through after you buy your tickets as a part of your Pisa trip.
  • This museum consists of removed paintings that have irreparably faded due to time and elements, that once adorned the walls of the Pisa cathedral. If you are passionate about extremely faded art work you will like it. It is a bit interesting, but the museum offers no variety in its collections, it is just faded Fresco after faded Fresco. Each painting is described in good detail, and a sample of the original is provided, but overall not worth the price of admission.
  • A bit disappointing. Not much content and had to wait in queue for quite a bit.
