A quick visit, no more than 30 minutes, interesting house and paintings. You will not regret it. Urbino does not have so many things to do or see, so since you are here, you might as well.

The house is furnished with an assortment of furniture, bric a brac and pictures which loosely depicts Raphael's home. The building itself is attractive but the paintings are mostly by minor artists or copies but there are a few gems. A painting by his father and some pencil sketches.

For lovers of the great Rafael, his ancient house in Urbino is a real treat. You only need a half hour or so to tour the place and even those who aren't interested in Rafael will marvel at the medieval household architecture that has been carefully preserved here.

Unfortunately, no photos are allowed. We arrived early when the house opened and it was just us and another couple to explore the beautiful 2 floor home and courtyard of Art Master Raffaello. There's a beautiful portrait Raffaello's father painted of his Mother holdinmg him when he was an infant displayed in the room Raffaello was born. It was a... More

It is a small exhibit, in a house where the richer people lived in the 15th/16th century. A few rooms where dedicated to the young Raffael and his father. The paintings are not the best and in some cases they are replica's, but what interested me most was that you get a very good idea of an Italian home in... More

If you are going to Raphael’s childhood home to see his original paintings you will be disappointed as there is only one fresco “attributed” to Raphael, done on a wall when he was young. All the other paintings are reproductions. However, the museum/home gives you a wonderful idea of what a home looked like when he was born in 1483,... More

From the outside this is slightly unprepossessing having no obvious architectural distinction but the interior is beautiful and really gives a good impression of domestic life of the artist. Superbly restored and very atmospheric, especially the room where Raphael is reputed to have been born.

No visit to Urbino is complete without a visit to Rafaels birthplace. There is a sufficent number of paintings to give you a good idea of his works, but you are not overwhelmed.

This is not a large museum but there was a great deal of information about Raphael and his family. It is in the centre of Urbino and well worth n hour of your time.
