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. However after I put away my handbag I discovered the audio guide was a further €3.00 on top of the €6.50 I... More

This museum has a considerable collection of paintings by Perugino and one of his pupils, Penturicchio. If you arecin Perugia, its a must visit. But take a private guide and avoud the audio guides -- useless.

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!

Not only the paints,but also the atmosphere and the building of Palazzo dei Priori is fantastic.You will see many of Perugino´s paintings. Also the notices in every sallas are very infomative.

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
