Sometimes a museum can be overwhelming with so much on display you feel you must see it all, this has a nicely curated selection of religious pieces many featuring the Madonna and child. It was interesting to see the filters that various medieval and renaissance artists used when portraying the pair...in one case the skin of the Christ child was... More

The Gallery itself is in an amazing building. The unguided tour starts at the top, sensibly, and then you work down. The medieval art is absolutely wonderful, and the renaissance art is fantastic, but eventually I was with the kids who said you can only look at so many paintings of the Madonna and child!

My visit started badly. Firstly staff would not allow me bring my handbag so I felt I'll at ease. Given that recently a French tourist allegedly tried to rob artefacts at Pompeii, their distrust of tourists is understandable.

Very well laid out gallery in a really nice building right in the centre of Perugia. Definitely worth a visit when you're visiting the town. Take your time walking around, it's very relaxing, and there are some great views from the windows, too!

Great museum, excellent paintings in a medieval building that is no less beautiful than the works it hosts. It can be visited in one morning, I loved it!

What a fabulous building and a wonderful collection. Not to be missed while visiting Umbria. This building is also a venue for meetings, concerts, events and all kinds of international visiting events. Such history and culture all wrapped into an outstanding peice of architecture.
