This is a very good museum detailing the history of Brescia, making the most of fascinating monastery buildings, chapels and the Roman ruins found underneath them. The explanations in English are detailed throughout, and the staff were well informed, helpful, and passionate about the museum.

We had a real surprise in discovering this UNESCO site, composed by museum, churches, cloisters, roman villas, unusual choir. Just enjoy the discovery! Don't miss the nearby archeological site (with separate ticket)

Brilliant if you like archeology. We had a guided tour, our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Unfortunately I am not an archeology buff so I got a bit bored
