We visited in mid July and didn't meet one single other visitor which was amazing as this was one of the highlights of the tour. There is so much to see and take in at this sprawling museum complex. The tour did not start well - we paid 10euro each to enter only to be told within 2 minutes that... More

This museum must have been great when it opened, but the staff are totally disinterested - one gallery had no lights - the staff just shrugged. We think that we saw everything, but the numbering of galleries was inconsistent, the 'you are here' * was absent on some floor plans & galleries seemed to close & reopen during our visit... More

This preserved excavation site was originally private Roman homes used for about 400 years. Found under a monastery garden, excavated then preserved with a new building built over to protect it. This is modern museum architecture. (This is what they should do at Pompeii rather than neglecting it to the elements.) There is English text but some translations are poor.... More

This is one of the best museums I' ve ever seen and I have been all over Italy. It takes you through the different periods of the history of the area. The scope and detail of the exhibits are incredible. Their quality is also amazing considering the smaller size of the city.The exhibits are also labeled in English.This is a... More

Not that big a museum, but with a nice painting (mostly religious) collection and the superb Santa Maria by Solarium Chapel, with the a very impressive ritual cross displayed on the upper level.

Had a great guided visit inside the museum. Important treasure belonging to different period of time can be seen here. From Roman time to Longobards. Some to mention: beautiful Roman villas ruins, roman mosaics on the walls, the cross of the last king of the Longobards, King Desiderio and home of the king's daughter Ermengarda (which Manzoni got his inspiration...

Santa Guilia was a wonderful surprise and the highlight of our stay in Brescia. It's an expansive museum, full of Italy's and Brescia's shared history and filled with wonderful artifacts and displays. We spent half-a-day in the museum and enjoyed every minute. Santa Guilia sits close to the Roman Temple and Amphitheater and is in easy walking distance of Brescia's... More
