Excellent museum. Well worth a visit.

Diverse range of art and statues plus historical artefacts. Good views of the city from the castle walls.

We accept that it was very hot in Verona (36 degrees) but there is no air conditioning in this museum. They had a few fans dotted about but it was so intolerably hot that we just couldn't stay. The staff were also visibly suffering and moaning about the heat. A real shame as we are very interested in Italian art.... More

for me it was ok, lots of paintings, nothing special. Nicely set out. Toilets are just after the entrance. There is a fee to get in, but if you have a Verona card its free. Lots of cafe's about. And about a 15 to 20 minute walk from Piazza Bra. I'd give yourself about 1 to 2 hours here if... More

Worth a visit if you are interested in mediaeval and renaissance art, architecture and Italian history. It's worth pointing out, however, that you may not last more than 45 minutes in the summer heat as none of it is air conditioned. The poor museum guides in each room looked practically ready to join the offerings surrounding them in the castle's... More

I am not particularly a fan of museums or religious art but this is a wonderful museum. It has a very unique layout and materiality. If you have any interest in architecture it is must see in Verona.

We visited this museum in an effort to get out of the 39 degree heat to while away a couple,of hours prior to getting our flight back to the UK. We ended up spending three hours here, there is so much to see. Not only is there some very weillpreserved archeological finds from the 14th and 15th centuries there are... More

A warning to travellers, this museum has small windows and a few fans dotted throughout, it's rather stuffy on a hot summer afternoon. It operates a one way system, once inside you cannot back out. The view on the roof is nice, you get a breeze there, the panoramic view is tranquil.

This museum had mostly biblical art and sculptures. It was nice work. Many of the artists were clearly masters. The castle itself is very beautiful. It is also quite huge. There were many gardens that were all beautiful. It was high up and you could someone playing violin on a nearby

Buildings and museum equally excellent. The reconstruction work is fantastic (the bridge was completely destroyed in WW2) and the modern additions to the castle are strong and elegant and accommodate the art galleries beautifully. The whole place is well thought out and adequately signed. Well worth the visit even if not an art lover - though there are some stunning... More

A huge range of artwork and artefacts, and great views along the river. Well worth the visit and the entry fee. Separately, you should also walk over the adjoining bridge that is part of the castle complex (free!).
