  • Passed by, but not particularly interested. I think this would be a great option for lovers of architecture, bas-reliefs, sculptures and various reliefs.

  • Although the visit is fast and can be tedious to the monotony of the collection, the Museum is an important milestone in the history of museums in Europe and therefore deserves a pass.

  • The Museo Lapidario Maffeiano, was established in 1738 by marchese Scipione Maffei, history buff, is one of the oldest museums in Europe where lapidary inside there are Etruscan, Greek and Roman inscriptions. Access is through a building at the entrance of Piazza Bra, passing through an arched portico with a wonderful view of the garden from the majestic neoclassical Pronaos crowned source among other things to the Teatro dei Filarmonici. A lift allows to reach the Interior closed the Museum; It is developed on two floors and has an interesting collection. In the yard, and under the porch, you can admire a restoration carried out on Roman gravestones.

  • As others have said: staff seemed surprised when we arrived & a security guard was falling off his chair asleep. Good if you like tablets and a few statues but not really worth paying for (unless you have the Verona Card or love archaeology). I wouldn't take my kids there!
  • One of the best world collections of Greek and Roman Lapidary. You will walk through 3000 years of history. A beautiful path that needs to be more enhanced as not everyone knows about this place. 4 stars just because there are those horrible modern sculptures that pretend to have something to match with those beautiful stones, full of history and stories to tell. The museum should also try to show the gorgeous collection of thousand of stones that still be stored in the underground for a lack of space and money. an interactive guide would be nice.
  • I arrived 45min before the official closing time and they didn't let me in. Lazy and unprofessional staff who should be fired.
  • Bunch of old rocks in a nice building. Wouldn't reccomend unless you have the "Verona Card" which includes entry within the price.
  • Worth to see
