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

Located near the duomo & a beautiful veranda which is overlooking a gorgeous view of the valley. Has some important works by Fra Angelico( the annunciation)Signoreli, Bartolomeo dela Gatta. .definitely worth visiting. Don't miss the underground hall as well.

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.

This is a nice museum, well worth the 5 Euro entrance fee. The two Fra Angelicos are superb and there were a number of other nice paintings by a local artist. The basement room (on the west side) should not be missed; the basement room on the east contains vestments that one of our party loved. Nice views from the... More

Lovely little museum close to the Cathedral & great views over the valley. Inside the building itself is worth seeing but the small art collection is simply stunning as are the embroidered vestments. Well worth the entrance fee.

Very small museum, but contains many masterpieces: ghirlandaio and fra angelico. Cortona is so small and doesn't offer many places to get in- everything is outside (the views and piazzas), so I think this place is a nice stop to make. Doesn't offer an international student discount.
