Good displays and great overall building with examples of real castle layouts and a terrific view of the river which also used to fill the most. Very much enjoyed our visit. Only part of it really interesting for children so if you really want a chance to enjoy the excellent art go with adults only.

The museum was renovated in the earlies 1900, but kept the exterior idea of what the castle was in ancient times. The collection is not big, the castle itself is worth visiting.

Restored by the noted Venetian architect Carlo Scarpa. If you are a exhibition designer, architect, artist or whatever related to design and art, do not miss here, the trip is absolutely worth seeing how elegant the way he used to approach the communication between new and old! Masterpiece.

Great spot and way to spend a few hours. To truly appreciate all that is has to offer I would recommend allowing a least 1-2 hours to visit it and its gardens. Lots of beautiful views and panoramas, of both the Adige river and the surrounding area. If your lucky enough to be in Verona for a Friday, you might... More

Lots for art work but just being in the castle itself is worth the entrance fee. You need to allow at least 90mins to look around

This museum is included in the Verona card. For those that do not have it, it costs 6 EUR, which is a fair price considering the number and quality of the artworks exhibited and the views from the walls of the castle. If you do not have much time to invest in Verona, I would suggest taking your time in... More

This is the castel in Verona and it is very nice. it also has some art exhibit inside but do not expect too much from that. The best thing about it is the architecture - the building itself and the wonderful view when you go up one of the towers - you can see Verona from above and you can... More

We enjoyed exploring this castle, the views from its ramparts were astounding and worth the 5 euro entrance fee. The medieval art and armour was also beautifully exibited and it contributed to the overall experience of the castel.

even if you get overwhelmed by the dozens of madonna/child paintings, the design by Scarpa is exceptional, fantastic museum space. Good interpretation sheets, too, multi-lingual. Leave time to enjoy.

If you are interested in religious medieval art this is the place for you. You can see numerous paintings from various Italian artists without the crowds of other museums. The fact that the gallery is not enormous is also another plus especially if you are visiting as couple/group who have different interests. You can also take pictures freely unlike other... More
