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.

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

This was an amazing experience for someone like me who enjoys art for its own sake and not because of a style or artist. We took forever to come to the end. The curators start you off on a particular staircase and you just follow...More

Most underrated museum I've ever been to. Off the beaten track, but sheer volume of 13-15th century paintings ('bizantian' style) is remarkable. Even Uffizi doesn't have this size of collection. Museum focuses on the gothic style, so relatively little renaissance paintings (for these Uffizi is...More

Despite how crowded Siena is, we were frequently alone in gallery after gallery of important Gothic panel paintings. This is not for everyone's taste, but it's a massive, important collection. The early Renaissance bypassed Siena, so this is not at all like a museum in...More
