This is a large art museum with an impressive collection. However, it no doubt suffers because of its proximity to the amazing frescoes of the Scrovegni Chapel (well, almost everything in Padova pales in comparison to the Scrovegni Chapel). It is still worth a visit....More

There is also nice archeological museum nearby. It is close to train station so...More
