Worth a visit. You wander around and mostly see the burial urns and frescoes on the walls. Cool on a hot day.

There is not a great deal to see here. If one is on a tight schedule than this can be given a skip. We stood in the queue to enter and were taken aback a little!

This is part of the cathedral visit. The statues are quite interesting but. You have to stand in a long queue for up to 30 minutes to climb to the top of the wall. They only allow a couple of dozen people through at any one time so you may have to wait a long while to get to the... More

It's an average museum with videos about the issues of the Pisa tower and some models of the structure of the tower which Is meant to provide some insight about the place though I am sure you can get a better insight from a good guide book or the internet.

Aftet the Big 3 ( Tower, Duomo, Battistero ), this the fourth attraction that will consume your time in the Square of miracles. My guess is that you would have come to Pisa after visiting the Rome or Florence museums. If that is the case, you can easily give this one a skip as you already would have visited the... More

It is part of the area that includes the famous tower but unfortunately it was closed for restoration. I am not even sure we would have gone in unless it was part of the 50 euro we already paid for other attractions here - the prices are a bit steep compared to other attractions in Italy or Europe

Having gone here after being in the Ufizzi and Academia in Florence, I was a bit underwhelmed. I don't do a lot of reading on the explanations on the works so I might have missed something here however I do feel that this is a place I could have skipped if I had known. The tickets are sold at a... More

Another great stop while visiting the Square of Miracles, which is also home to the Leaning Tower and Duomo. Originally the seminary, it was re-tasked as a museum displaying the development of medieval sculptures and religious paintings. Part of the combo ticket and well worth the time to visit. It wasn't busy when we went through.

It is always a pity when you like to visit a museum (such as the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo) and it is closed. At least it was mentioned on their site, so that the disappointment was not too big. I hope that you will be luckier when you visit Pisa.

Have been before, but would have again as it was part of a block ticket., Unfortunately it is closed until well into 2015. Not sure why.. Best check the website.
