  • with only 3 Euro admission it´s a steal. Great place to visit and see period pieces, paintings, furniture. There´s also a cafe. They have special exhibition as it is the 10th anniversary year.  more »
  • I went to 8/2017. Is the building on the left side of the river and Italy Street stretches from Pisa Centrale railway station straight ahead hit into the Arno River. It is a blue building, not big buildings. Of the City Hall. I stopped by on the way heading to the train station, walk from the leaning tower of Pisa.

  • Nice well maintained Palace. The sub floor to the 2nd floor, a very interesting visit by the presentation by the collections. A plus for the 1st floor where everything is presented in a situation: library, music room, dining room,... Remarkable ceilings. Very beautiful parquet floor in the dining room eating. A fee of € 3 price, who announced with a smile, would have been a plus. I recommend this tour.

  • The Escher exhibit (temporary, currently on now) is phenomenal, a must-see for any fan. Admission is about 12 euros, includes a good audio guide. A really good break from the endless procession of Middle Ages and Renaissance paintings as well. The permanent exhibitions are far less unique, but only an euro more and still solid for what they are-- beautifully furnished building, with a range of paintings from different periods. I particularly enjoyed the room of post-Macchiaioli artwork. I love learning the local history and there was an interesting-looking exhibit about the student movement in the 60s as well, but it was unfortunately in Italian only.
  • Great exhibitions. Gorgeous Palace. Highly recommend.
  • Amazing artwork, the history of more then seven centuries shown in an amazing exhibition. I recommend it for anyone who enjoys a little bit of culture.
  • Currently holding an mc Escher exhibition. Well worth seeing
  • Cute museum with a good collection of Pisan Renaissance art.
