The buildings, the gardens and the site in general, is a really worth visiting place. There you can learn a lot of details about Dante's life in Ravenna.

The buildings alone make this worth visiting. The displays are a mixture of standard signboards and some well designed audio-visual material. Competing musical soundtracks make for cacophony in one part of the building with no sense of period for the compositions. The museum needs a...More

This museum provided a pleasant contrast from the mosaics, imaginatevely explaining the life and works of Dante, probably insufficiently understood by most English speaking tourists

Obviously, monuments and dead poets don't really talk. The museum allowed Dante's voice and life to ring out in a unique fashion.

Ravenna has so many amazing attractions to offer that this one falls a bit short in comparison. The museum offers Dante's history as seen through the eyes of painters through the ages, as well as an exhibition on Ravenna's own historical ties to Dante's life...More
