Located on the ground floor of the Palazzo this is a surprisingly good exhibition of work done at the end of the 19th Century and early 20th Century. There are some lovely paintings by Casas and some interesting poster advertisements of the same period. Definitely worth a visit whilst this is on.

Characterized by front walls made of marble stones shaped as diamonds, this museum accomodates almost continuously very interesting and prestigious paintings exhibitions. On weekends it is recommendable to book the visit online in advance to get faster admission.

The best part of this museum is the outside. They have a strange pricing structure not readily apparent on admission. The special exhibit was 11€ and the permanent exhibit was 4€ or 13€ for both. The special exhibit was small and only so-so, while the permanent exhibit was much larger and more interesting, although not great.This museum is not included... More

Some incredible fresco walls to be viewed in huge dimensions in one particular room. Worth going in just to see these alone.

The building is beautiful & unique from outside. The facade is made of about 8500 marble blocks cit in the shape of a diamond. Unfortunately we couldn't visit it inside & see the architecture as well as the exhibitions, because at 13:00 all was closed(on a Saturday). It seems that in Ferrara all the palaces, museums, churches, the botanical garden... More

Didn't really enjoy this much. Although there were some fine paintings every time we talked about them staff shot us grim glances and disapproving looks!

Compared to the importance of the artistic production of Ferrara during the renaissance, only few movable works of art of the highest importance are left in Ferrara. The museum in the Palazzo dei Diamanti is just a mirror of this unfortunate history. So, first of all enjoy the street Ercole D'Este. It is not spoiled by shops and it gives... More

As expected , most of the paintings had a religious theme, plenty of madonnas, lives of the saints etc.. Always good, though, to see inside of these old palaces.
