Tucked away from the main streets of Bologna, this small yet very historical museum is a gem! I took a tour on my own, no rush and most of the area's you can take pictures. It is laid out oddly, allot of up/down stairs and...More

The museum of medieval artifacts is interesting and not too big to get lost in. A plentiful mix of items, some of which will surprise you. Spend an interesting hour or more here.

The museum has an interesting structure incorporating Medieval and Roman architectural elements as it occupies land that has been built and rebuilt over time. The collection is not extensive but it has enough to trigger ones interest. Can be seen in a short visit.

Not to be missed if visiting Bologna. It's a lovely building to wander around if you have 2 hours spare. Everything is laid out well and spacious and the staff were very helpful. The cost was 5 euros per person and well worth it.

A nice little museum - it should take about one hour for you to see everything. Latout is a bit old style - But the artefacts are good. Highlights are the Medieval Carvings and the Illuminated Manuscripts

Plenty of fire arms and armor, and to be fair something to hold everyone's interest. The limited English signage was disappointing,especially after the audio player malfunctioned. Actually, even before the mechanical problem, the aristocratic, nasal annotator could not manage to enunciate more than a few...More
