We came here to see the Borso D’Este bible in the University Library, but had the chance to look at some other parts of the grounds at the same time. The highlight was a collection of Roman sarcophagi in a courtyard near the entrance. Try were impressive not just for their beautifully carved panels, but their size and wonderful preservation.

It is a museum housed in a building of over a thousand years. The museum does not have a large collection but the stories of exhibits can fill some parts of Italian history. Some of the ancient items can be dated back to the Roman Empire and Renaissance. The paintings on the wall are precious. Copies of these original paintings were found in textbooks. The good thing is not many people are around so it is possible to spend a lot of time to examine the detail history behind the scene.

We went during the June 2 holiday weekend so the entrance was free. Downstairs housing memorial artifacts is open without a ticket and has a snack bar. The fourth floor houses their art collection it's accessible by stairs or a glass lift. It's a simple collection compared to great museums for the size of this palace but has a few masterpieces. An hour is plenty of time to walk through.

On the ground floor is the lapidary, a museum of old carved stones, some Roman some medieval and later period. On the 4th floor is the Estense art gallery, displaying the art collection of the dukes of Ferrara and Modena. This is the only museum you have to pay for. A floor down is the "civic" museum, which houses the archaeological section, as well as a sort of models for arts and crafts and some more art works. This is for free, and there is an English language audio guide (also for free). Finally, this building also houses the Estense library, one can visit, but there is little to see, as it is a working research library. Just old books crammed in about every available space.

Did not enjoy. Sign says tickets... go to get one told to go to fourth floor. Nobody speaks English. No idea how much and no idea where to go. Finallt some other tourist told us where to go. No idea what I was looking at. Everything of religous intent and everything in Italian with no translation. Would not recommend unless you can read Italian. Onlt fourth floor was open. Poor signage and nothing else to see.
