Although this time museum is packed with great art, it is not o be missed for its Annunciation by Beato Angelico. How this out-of-the-way museum came to have such a great collection is astounding. And, no crowds, and cheap.

Really a lot of beauty packed into this tiny museum. It was refreshing to visit with no crowds and just take the time to see some famous art.

I am sort of with Mark Twain when it comes to walls of art in most any museum. Unless you have specific interest or knowledge, it becomes a blur. This is a small museum with one masterpiece. That made it for us.

The art pieces are amazing. Did not realise such famous artists are associated with Cortona. Only a small museum but well worth a visit.

A small museum near the Cathedral but well worth a visit to see paintings by Signorelli and the Annuciation by the Beato Angelico, with the beautiful angel with the red dress and blond hair

I don't mean to offend, but the luscious paintings of Baby Jesus with Popes or Cardinals is just wrong. The paintings at the museum are fantastic.
