  • Two cloisters with a remarkable collection of inscriptions, tombstones and more. I took the audioguide-very well done-with interesting insights. The upper floor holds exhibits of ivory, bronze, a great mobile in an old pharmacy, a small Egyptian collection and still finds and artifacts saved from churches have been lost. One and a half hours well spent.

  • This museum is housed in the cloisters of the former Benedictine monastery in the complex of San Vitale. The Museum is worth a visit for its fine collection of minor Arts: burial stelae and inscriptions, archaeological finds, fabrics of different eras, ivories, icons not to mention a collection of ancient weapons. In addition, visitors can enjoy a spectacular complex cycle of frescoes of 300, a masterpiece of Pietro da Rimini, detached from the old church of Santa Chiara which was once part of the Church of the Poor Clares, now Deconsecrated. Absolutely worth visiting!

  • Visited on the first Sunday of February profiting from the promotion that sees all state museums open on the first Sunday of every month there is plenty to see from the cloisters outside the inner rooms with exhibits ranging from the Etruscans to the Egyptians from ceramics to Armor

  • A large and diverse collection, unfortunately often poorly lit.
  • A remarkable Museum potentially for the quality of the objects. Unfortunately many pieces from the collection of avorî are covered with mold, many pieces of mosaic from San Vitale lie in a hallway with no enclosure or boundary (besides being had made with covered in a thick layer of dust) where it had been thought the new entrance to the Museum: a horrific concrete staircase that should arouse indignation in the taxpayer, as well as in tourist minimally conscientiously. The collection of the necropoli di Spina is in terrible shape: courtesy of employees made me enter the room, normally closed for the usual mantra-"lack of staff", where I saw ancient glass shattered inside the shrines, in abundant company of insects now left in there for who knows how. A shame they let it out so a monument only because it is perceived to be of prime importance (by whom? under what criteria for?).

  • Overall, an opportunity was lost. Actually, this museum should cover three things: 1. history of the Romans until in modern times 2 research history of the objects that belong to the UNESCO world cultural heritage 3. archaeology of Ravenna and the surrounding area unfortunately nothing of all this is implemented, Ravenna better deserved.
