This is a very small museum with the emphasis on ecclesiastical art. The entry was included in a multiple ticket purchase, hence the visit.

Visited with my family this museum - nothing memorable ... just the expensive entry fee. You really must be interested in sacral art in order to enjoy it.

The art displayed here is gorgeous! The Madonna of the Roses was especially beautiful. It's a low key museum, very calm and serene.

We toured the museum as part of a ticket package to visit La Collgiata (Il Duomo). The art spanned centuries and was presented in ways that allowed the visitor to get up close. The vestments on display were beautiful as were the many monstrances.

It looks as though the church took all the old stuff they don't use anymore and put it on display. Very few items worth seeing. Worse yet, if a church is going to put a reliquary in a museum, it should remove the relics first....More
