I have been here with my wife and we really appreciated the gallery and th exposed art pieces. Of course this was a personal problem but we felt a bit suffocated by the closed spaces and the more we went in, the more breathless we felt, which made us leave sooner. Nevertheless, it is a must-see for art lovers and... More

This is a great art gallery. Get a museum card that covers this and a number of other museums in the town. Also get the audio guide (one euro plus the card 13 euro card). The guide gives an excellent commentary on key pieces in the collections of 12-16th century art from Umbria. It also covers other museums and points... More

Anyone visiting Perugia should not miss this fabulous collection. This is world-class collection of paintings and some of the early works, for instance those by Fra Angelico and Perugino, and simply wonderful. All the works are beautifully displayed in the Palazzo dei Notari and the medieval rooms have been sensitively adapted to their new role. Outstanding.

This museum was larger with more art than I expected. It's spacious and it's easy to take your time enjoying what you want. There is lots of 13th and 14th century art as well as more modern art up to the 17th century. The layout keeps you moving through the many rooms. Helpful hint - when you leave your bag... More

Museum can be comparised with Uffici in Florence but without ques and crowds, there is a large number of works of genial Umbria renaissance painters not so famous but excellent like Giotto or Boticelli. We love it! In bookshop you can buy some postcards, suvenirs... I recomend book Unforgotable Umbria.

I visited later in the evening and practically had the museum to myself. Beautiful examples of religious art. The museum is of a good size in that isn't overwhelmingly large but still felt it was good value.

This museum is very moderately priced and has many lovely religious pieces. I believe they specialize in artists from Umbria. If you are into these types of paintings, I believe they have one of the largest collections I have seen in one place. There are also very few people, which allows you to enjoy the art work in silence. The... More

Good amount of local paintings at a well located place. If you're looking for a place to spend some time at Perugia it might be a good call.

We found this museum almost by accident when we stopped to walk through Perugia. The whole town seems off the beaten tourist track, although it is old and beautiful. This museum was almost deserted on a Saturday evening. We spent a couple of hours admiring the collection which we had almost to ourselves. The spectacular palazzo that houses the museum... More
