Much cheaper than than the Museo Civico with better examples of local Gothic art. The displays are arranged in an attractive building and I was amazed how few visitors it had.

Nice collection of medieval and early-Renaissance art. Duccio, Simone Martini, the Lorenzetti brothers, famous stuff, but the most famous stuff of these guys is found somewhere else either in Siena or even in Florence, the Lourvre, London and so on. Come here to see secondary...More

I did not know what to expect or what paintings they have...but it turned out that I loved this museum much more than the more famous Brera museum in Milano! The ticket was 4 or 5 euros. I was maybe one of the 2 or...More

Siena is known for 13th and 14th century altar pieces and this museum is full of them- lavishly gilded with gold and done in luminous colors. Also, it's not too big and can easily be visited in a morning before lunch or late afternoon.

The art museum is in an old building that has seen better days, but it is worth the detour. Here you will see hundreds of marvelous works by Sodoma, Beccafume, and dozens of other great Sienese artists. You can see the initial stirrings of the...More

I had just about given up on seeing this, we had run out of time and i just stumbled upon it. I hurried through it... 5€ entry. I appreciated the art. Not much more to say. Enjoyed it because there was nobody inside. Zero tourists

First rate collection of Sienese art, especially strong in Gothic period. Enjoyed Simone Martini paintings a lot.

On my page the 14th century in Italy created the most amazing art ever, mixing innocence with striving to the sublime. And this museum has it all, from the 13th century, almost byzantine, through the breaking through to the late Gothic of Ducio, Simone Martini...More

This has a wonderful collection of 13th and 14th century Sienese art and is a must see attraction if that is your thing. It is also blissfully empty of tourists so you can enjoy the Duchies and Martinis in peace. It really brings home the...More
