The main attraction in Cortona

Small but nice muséum, most important for Fra Angelico's paintings. Essentially for 15th and 16th century paintings. Quiet and not crowded.

This small affordable museum (5E) is never crowded. A beautiful collection of religious art from the 15th and 16th century, an amazing collection of early art in great condition. On a hillside looking over the fabulous Tuscan countryside. You could paint beautiful scenes from this view.

Well laid out and easy to follow, plenty of information on everything written in English. Takes you step by step through each of the different Era's that have been found in the region, so many well displayed and well cared for artifacts.

Museo Diocesiano is small and very quiet place. Inside, some beautiful paintings. Fra Angelico's "Annunciazione" is there. Do not miss it. The Museum is 3-4 minuter far from Piazza della Republica. Near the museum is an excellent belvedere of Tuscany.

This museum is not large, or very expensive but a great stop in Cortona. It is small enough and put together well enough that it holds kids interest. Easy to find, and a good break from shopping and eating in Cortona.

Small, simple, and easy to walk thru in an hour. I rented the audio and enjoyed the explanations of every piece of religious art. Signorelli's painting along with those that were done in his workshop were, of course, beautiful and wonderful to view without the crowds.

Whilst the bigger museums were crowded this little gem was not. Yet it offered some wonderful viewing of Signorelli's paintings in a fascinating multi-layered old building

5 euro admission, with rooms of beautiful paintings and very historic building. There is also a gift shop to make purchases. We weren't very impressed. It is located across from the cathedral with a beautiful view with benches outside.

We stayed in Cortona two full days so added this museum to our activities. We enjoyed this museum between our wanderings around town.
