Small and somewhat limited collection of religious and other art works, but worth a visit if in the area and ties in nicely with a visit to the nearby Papal Palace.
Easy museum to walk through with some real gems hidden here. As was interrupted by the museum lunch break was able to return to finish the rooms. (Keep you tickets) Only negative is that you are constantly watched by the staff.

The rooms are well organized and written up... More

Visiting the museum prepares you for the assault on the palace of the Popes. The paintings furnish and populate the otherwise barren building . Marvel your way through 350 paintings that have a mainly... More

Museum is well laid out and difficult to go the wrong way (can't say the same thing about the Palace of the Popes!). Some really extraordinary paintings, especially in the later rooms. I... More
