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.

Take an audio-guide; we missed this at the entrance. Take your time to really walk through all the rooms

Wonderful. The Peruginios especially, but there's also Duccio, Giotto, Martini, Piero della Francisco and many others. Loved it. If you enjoy art, there's nothing to dislike. We went back three times to 'do' it all. If I was being critical, it wasn't well managed, the post cards are just where people are queuing to get tickets and even on a... More

The exhibition of art held at the Galleria Nazionale takes you from the middle ages right up to Baroque times. Most of the art consists of icons and frescoes and other paintings, including selections from Perugino and Rafael. When we bought the tickets, we were not offered audio guides, but I'm sure there are available.

The contributions of Umbria to the history of art are significant, and this museum has some magnificent works, including important paintings by Perugino, Piero della Francesca, Gozzoli, Pinturicchio, and Fra Angelico.

A relaxed atmosphere, the children found it as interesting as the adults; the shop is small but with a good-quality range.

Blown away with the breath and depth of the paintings in this beautiful museum of Italian painters. Beautifully displayed, the presentation is most impressive. Warned by TA reviews, we were careful to watch the order of rooms and skipped the audio guide. While the signage is all in Italian, it's a lot more detailed than any other museum I've ever... More
