Didn't make it past the entrance with the staff. First staff member, a man, was so dismissive and laughed in our faces went to a woman who decided her computer screen was far more important that us to look at and never even glanced up....More

In order to enter the amazing buildings that surround the leaning tower of Pisa you will need to visit the museum to obtain a (free) ticket. We attempted this on two separate days without success (too late and too busy). Which was frustrating but not...More

We visited the Museo delle Sinopie last, after having visited the Leaning Tower, Cathedral, Baptistery and the cemetery. If we are honest, this to us, was a bit uninteresting as it is not really our thing. The reason we visited is because we purchased tickets...More

The most uninteresting runaround of a museum ever. Very specialist and narrow subject where half of the exhibition is about how the fresco sketches were saved and the rest a pointless display unless you are an academic specialising in the field. Only good point is...More

I'm not sure who the target market is for this museum, but it clearly isn't me. It has a short explanation of how frescoes are made, and then it had dozens of sinopie sketches showing the first step in creating a fresco. The museum needs...More

Underwhelming compared to the other buildings and sights If you are visiting go before the Campo Santo as this explains the restoring of frescoes I would suggest this museum is of limited appeal

Strangely bereft of visitors. We visited after viewing the Camposanto and were pleased to learn how artists went about creating the magnificent frescoes.
