The special exhibit on Impressionism was very large and well done. There were many works that represented the various artists very well, along with some that were interesting because they were not what one thinks about a particular artist. Well worth the visit. The writeups in each room tended to be too long, and the museum was crowded, but it... More

Unfortunately we were not interested in the Escher exhibition and the rest of the exhibits were rather second rate and dreary. I had managed to stagger to the top of a steep staircase and the art works were really not worth the effort. The Titian was on loan to somewhere or other and works which had once been housed at...

We were drawn to the museum for the Escher exhibition. Staff were very helpful & we found the displays to be very well presented. Staff were keen for us to ensure we saw all that the museum had on offer (not just Escher), and between our limited Italian and one particularly wonderful staff member's limited English, we managed to have...

Well worth visiting. Went to see the Escher exhibition, which proved a big hit with teenager present! Rather expensive, especially the 'reduced' ticket. Some (most) staff polite and helpful, but apparently no English spoken. We were asked where we were from and when we answered that one of us was English and one Italian, a male member of staff proceeded... More

This museum currently hosts an extensive well presented exhibition on the Dutch artist Escher. It also has a small permanent collection. The place is well organized and modern. You can also visit the old Church of Santa Caterina and it's interesting frescoes

First time we tried to go it was closed , but had heard it was good so made time on our second day in Treviso to check it out. It was worth it . I am not sure if we were lucky but we were given a guided tour by a young lady who worked there She just made the... More

We enjoyed very much this museum and its variety, from ancien artifacts to modern painting and sculpture, and a beautifully restored church. Wegot to see paintings by local artists that we did not know and liked a lot.

The fresco cycle is a bit of a hidden gem, as Santa Caterina seems to be slightly off the 'main drag', but definitely worth a visit. There weren't many visitors when we were there, so we were followed round the rest of the museum by a couple of attendants who turned the lights out behind us as we progressed through... More

This is an impressive museum by any standard and we were quite unprepared for the range of artefacts, archeology and paintings on display. It's actually divided into 3 areas: the underground and ground levels take you through several thousand years of local archeology with an impressive display of artefacts; the 1st floor includes a range of portraits and sculptures, mainly...

If you are in Treviso you must visit this museum. It is based on a large old church and a convent. The church is now dedicated to showing a collection of frescoes telling the story of St Ursula. The convent forms a really extensive art gallery and museum and you could spend hours there. It closes for lunch but they... More
