I usually skip religious art sections but the visit has changed my opinion about it. Very interesting to see how the painters struggled with perspective and started to work it out, how landscapes got into religious paintings and how it changes your perception actually ☺...More

Even though it is all religious art the quality is very good and the paintings are clean. Easy to follow the exhibits up and down the various floors.

A nice museum with lots of artwork to see and some information boards in other languages (English, German, Italian), just a shame we had to rush it as we did this on our last day. We had attempted to visit earlier but it's closed on...More

An interesting place to visit to see religious art history. The gallery is well laid out with different rooms leading through from the oldest to the more recent. In the centre of each room is a dispenser with large cards explaining what the room is...More
