The Musea Archeologico is definitely worth visiting in association with il Duomo. It is possible to purchase an inclusive ticket for 12 euros which is good value for seeing such captivating statues and other artefacts. Many are by Giovani Pisano dating from 1248 to 1314...More

**about 50% of the rooms on the map are closed - Very poor lighting with very few worthwhile pottery pieces. Some Roman eroded/damaged marble cremation internment urns and containers - basically for school field trips

Not a must see, but if you are into museums then worth it. The outside structures and architecture is what Siena is all about.

Came here to see the old hospital but found ourselves lost amongst the old artefacts in the museum. You get an audio guide for free, but check it works we had to return twice!! The museum/hospital is badly signed so you have no idea where...More

One relaxed place to go to and feel the old treasures and history of Siena. Paintings, architecture, sculptures... its all there. The relaxed way things are on display give the welcome feeling of intimacy.

The museum was interesting in parts. Seemed to be displays being rearranged or set up. The section about the recent earthquake in Umbria was very interesting

This is a must for any visitor to Siena. Extraordinary. A class act of a museum. I take groups to Siena and this is always at the top of the list. No one is ever disappointed in Museo Archeologico.
