You need to come here if you are visiting the Chapel frescoes, but the museum itself is excellent as well. It covers everything from Roman architecture and remnants of artefacts to bronze sculpture, marble, paintings and it's very well laid out over a very large...More

Nice collection. Could you more signs in different languages. Wasn't my favorite experience. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

If you were not overwhelmed with the Cappella degli Scrovegni, then wander around this museum. The second floor is where the action is and be prepared to be filled to the gills with art, about 95% of it with a religious theme. I must admit,...More

Really this is worth spending an hour or two if you can. There are Master painters exhibits as well as Giottos Crucifix that is amazing. The art here is incredible and I was full of wonder and so appreciative to see such masterpieces.

The artefacts and there presentation from the surrounding area show the importance of Padova. But it would be helpful for the tourists who don't speak Italian to have a trranslation if even into English. Otherwise faultless.

We found this a hard place to find as we thought it was where tickets to the Scrovegni Chapel were sold and the signs advising its presence were obscured. We went for the art and some of it was very interesting. Particularly interesting was a...More

We went to Padua to see Giotto's paintings in the chapel next door to the museum. The collections in the museum were really good, and all those working at the museum that we interacted with were extremely helpful and polite. Tintoretto's paintings were among the...More
