The City Museum, unique in its design and location - a monastic complex of Lombard foundation - and with display areas covering 14,000 m², offers a journey through Brescia’s history, art and spirituality from prehistoric times to the present day.

Wonderful museum in extensive collection of Medieval and Renaissance art, also significant Roman ruins, including impressive mosaics. This site is quite underrated and worth the visit, if staying in Milan for a few days.

The museum is amazing for the quantity and quality of the pieces exposed, for the ease of visit and for the churches included in the visit. Very nice the exhibit of Roman villas. Every piece in labeled also in English.

A large collection, good location but very bad presentation. Enjoyable if you are a history buff or an art expert but long and boring for the average visitor. "Here is the stuff we found under the building".
