Opening time to the Palazzo was 9-14.00 and I think there was at least one weekday where it was closed? We visited on Wednesday and paid the 5 euros which were well worth it. Situated on the north side of the river Arno, easily reached from the leaning tower by foot. Some really beautiful exhibits!

This is an old-style museum with lots to look at - preferable to over-curation. The collection spans various royal courts from the 16th to the early 20th century, (miniatures, portraits, sculpture, furniture,'glass and porcelain) with several collections of 20th century art and sculptureo on loan. The ceilings were beautifully painted and a carriage sits in the entry area. I got... More

These museum exhibits are housed in a royal palace situated alongside the River Arno in the centre of Pisa. Opening hours are restricted to mostly mornings. The entrance ticket is 5 euros and can be combined with the nearby San Matteo Museum for a total of 8 euros. The exhibits are mainly based on the families of Tuscany rulers. They... More

We were the only visitors at the time. Maybe it's because it closes at 2pm. Once the doors were unlocked for us, we were free to wander as we liked. There's paintings, tapestry, furniture, statues, ceramics. Not much in the way of explanations in English, but a leaflet you pick up as you go in explains some of it. An... More

I wouldn't put this museum at the top of my list of things to do in Pisa, but if you're in town for more than a day it's not a bad way to while away an hour or so. Lots of paintings so poorly lit you can barely make them out. The standouts of the collection for me were the... More

When we arrived, we were shown the lockers where we left our small backpacks, but we weren't required to put in handbag or small camera bag, provided we gave assurances we wouldn't take photos. One member of staff (a curator?), who spoke excellent English, accompained us to the first room & gave us far more information than was displayed. Despite... More
