Fascinating collection and well laid out. Definitely worth a visit. Entrance a ground floor but museum on upper floors. Lots of rooms in chronological order.

If you have never been there, you don't know what you're missing. One of the most interesting thing is the paintings' cycle about the original shape of Rocca Paolina, before the destruction of the end of the XIX century.

We kept finding ourselves almost alone in the museum's rooms -- looking at incredible art. Peruginos. Fra Angelicos. Room after room without the crowds of Florence and Rome. Beautiful and breathtaking.

Well laid out gallery, although there is a bit of a climb up 3 flights of stairs to reach the entrance. You are not allowed to take bags into the gallery, but lockers are provided. You can take photos (without flash) and take a bottle of water around with you - it is very warm and there are no refreshments... More

This museum houses a # of beautiful artwork pieces - really enjoyed our visit. Nicely displayed works that wind throughout the floors - really got a good sense of the historical period.

I visited the Galleria Nazionale recently, specifically to see Piero della Francesca's Polyptych of St. Anthony- a lovely Madonna and Child topped by an Annunciation considered to be among the finest Renaissance perspective renderings. Along the way I saw the many pictures by Perugino, another highlight of this fine collection, and other top-flight artists who produced works in Perugia and... More

I'm not really an art connoisseur but I very much enjoyed browsing through this museum. Some items were of interest mainly for their age, but many showed fascinating variations of style. Definitely worth the time and cost
