Uncovered during the WW II bombings. It is a small museum and not sure that the number of interesting things really makes it worth the 5 Euro admission. The concept and role of the sinopia is interesting but maybe not worthy of a museum experience....More

It is definitely a place to visit for connoisseurs of art; it contains a good collection of interesting exhibits of both modern and ancient art. Here you can easily spend a few hours looking and enjoying the genius of the human imagination.

Not the greatest museum in the world but still had some interesting things to see. But when on a tour of Pisa there isn't a lot of things to see over 3 hours.

Not much to see . expo of an artist from the 60's, unknown to me. Some fresco's but again nothing special. Film on the tower is nice but you see this when buying your ticket. Don't bother..

Wickedly cool art statues and frescoes. Nice calm place without all the people to sit and admire the simple pieces.
