Founded in 1923 and located in the cloister of St. Lorenzo Cathedral, the museum assembles various types of artworks. Most interesting are: the painting by Luca Signorelli, by Agostino di Duccio, wooden sculptures, a rare display of illuminated manuscripts and two sections dedicated to ecclesiastic furnishings and liturgical paraments.

This museum is located right next to the Duomo and has some most interesting art and architecture to explore. It can be visited with the Perugia Museums card and we highly recommend it.

A nice place to visit. It offers both art work from the Cathedral (like Domenico Ghirlandaio's beautiful painting) and archeological part.

Underground archeological site just in the center of town. You can walk on roman streets and see the foundations of houses. The most interesting think is a huge etruscan wall.
