Beautiful small collection of tapestries paintings sculpture and amazing collection of cathedral music books
I went in expecting chalices etc but was pleasantly surpised. They had beautiful 13th century carvings from the wallsof the cathedral , showing the seasons, Huge illuminated Psalm books from 12th century, and a stunning Madonna and child by Jacobo della Quercia, which looked as perfect as anything could be. This small museum was the best of a number of... More
