Although I am not heavily into religious art, I could not fail to be impressed by many of the exhibits on display.

The city of Volterra is a treasure of art and history, but not only for its Etruscan masterpieces. If possible, during the city tour do not forget to spend an hour at this wonderful shrine of italian painting. It is a relatively small collection, but top quality. Among the many Italian museums of this kind, the Art Gallery of Volterra... More

If you like medieval and Renaissance painting do not miss this gallery. It is also in a wonderful building. You can also look behind the paintings because they are on easels and not attached to the ancient walls.

I like to spend money (actually, too much!) when it comes to art, especially for visiting museums and exhibitions. However, this museum is overpriced. You actually pay 8 euros for the single visit (you can also buy a cumulative ticket with other museum) which is too much with respect to what you can find inside.

A 14th century palace filled with art from the 1300s. You can purchase this museum ticket with the Etruscan museum, which makes it reasonable value

We visited with no charge on one of Volterra's Notte Bianca (White Nights). Because the museum had only just opened, there were not too many people and we were able to easily view the paintings. They were very interesting and probably would merit a 4 star if the gallery had been bigger. The shop and other facilities were closed when... More

This museum has some very fine pictures. I particularly liked Domenico Bigordi's Christ in Glory. You can purchase this museum ticket with the Etruscan museum, which makes it reasonable value.

You get this art museum included with the Etruscan admission. Both were our favorite museums in Volterra.

This museum is truly a hidden gem . . . in a less-traveled city . . . but an excellent museum. If you are in Volterra, do not miss the opportunity to spend some time here. A true highlight of our trip to Italy.

The paintings from the 1300s are very well preserved and interesting. Check out some of the woodworking. Incredibly detailed inlaid wood scenes on cabinets and tables.
