Unfortunately the museum was closed because it was a monday. I was diappointed because there was an exhibition of Veronese paintings that I would have loved to see.

We arrived 45 minutes before the museum closed and whilst we were allowed to enter it was clear we were unwelcome. the staff were already closing the exhibits and packing up to home. At 20 minutes before closing time they told us to leave and they were all assembled at the entrance ready packed to go home. Left very unimpressed.

This mediaeval castle in the centre of Verona has been transformed into an excellent, modern museum, whilst not detracting from its ancient origins. The design of the spaces and the transformation of the rooms are worth seeing in their own right, but there is a good collection of paintings, augmented by some exceptional mediaeval pieces of sculpture. To cap it... More

This museum is definitely worth a visit. It has great paintings, historical artifacts, an impressive building, i.e. castle/fortress, good displays. The history of Verona and surroundings with exclusive pieces of some of the major medieval Italian painters and sculptors. I was impressed with some of the paintings that were surprisingly modern yet dated back to the 15th century. Highlights for... More

You get both in one go! Great views from the ramparts. Got told to leave my quite small rucksack in a box in the entry area. Not confident it would be looked after but I was reunited with it in the end. Guards a bit stoney faced but one fetched me a stool so redeemed!

Don't miss it! It is a bit distant from the main part of Verona, but worth the walk or 6€ cab fare from the center of Verona.

Expensive coffee and food at restaurants. Lively place. Good photography opportunity. Walkable distance from Casa de Guiletta. Easy parking and walking from the river.

Did not know the museum was inside the castle but was recommended to see the art by our tour guide. Free to walk around the inside of the castle & a small charge to enter the museum. Well worth a visit even if you don't like the art. See the website for more details. Would have been 5 stars if... More

This place has a moat, drawbridge, and is quite different to other bridges, as it is built as part of the castle. Great art in the museum.

We thought the staff in the castle rooms were rather unpleasant and unhelpful , and the bathrooms not very pleasant either, but apart from that it was an interesting afternoon, with lots of interesting photo opportunities up on the battlements and across the river.
