I have come to love Umbria, a close sibling to one of many of Italy's more famous tourist arenas. That it is somehow yet off the beaten track, lesser familiar and no less worthy of attention than other areas is a blessing yet disguised, much to my happiness and relief. Complesso Museale di San Francesco is broad in its scope... More

The fresco's are a must see when you are in Montefalco. On the way to the museum you will more than likely cross the lovely piazza which is one of the most beautifull in umbria. The fresco's in the church are of high quality and if you have a bit of time and follow the storeys, look at the landscapes... More

After visiting some of the better known and larger collections of art in Italy this wasn't that impressive. However the old wine making display in the lower basement made it worthwhile. The church and art are very nice but not exceptional. The wine making equipment was interesting. How they did all that in the time before electric lights is difficult... More

Well worth the entrance fee. Don't miss this in the town. The largest collection of frescoes we have seen in one place in Italy.

We took a short morning trip to Montefalco and stopped in the museum. It is small but frankly just the right size for our family with four younger sons. The artwork is beautiful and architecture was amazing. We spent about 40 minutes in total and it was the perfect attraction for a short trip to Montefalco.

Charming small museum and beautiful, accessible frescoes. (They have an app to download but it wasn't that helpful - better to use a guidebook)

This small but well organized museum is famous for the frescoes of Bennozzo Gozzoli. The San Francesco church that contains the frescoes is attached to the museum and included in the 7 euro entrance fee. We weren't deeply enough into Umbrn art to appreciate much of their collection and went fairly quickly into the church. The frescoes, recently restored, are... More

This is the second time that my husband and I have visited the Museo Civico di San Francesco to marvel at the beautiful Benozzo Gozzoli frescoes of the "Life of Saint Francis". Highly recommended for visitors to Montefalco.
