One of the strangest sights in Lucca is this fifteenth-century home, with a battlement tower surmounted by oak trees whose roots have grown into the room below.

On the day we visited we practically had the place to ourselves. Maybe it's because people don't have the time or that it's a bit away from the busy centre area, but this museum has a lot to offer. Combined ticket for here and Palazzo...More

Wonderful collection but do not forget to peek into left side of garden. Unusually friendly staff. Wellmarked exhibits.

Contains a full range of Lucca & Siena artifacts & art from the Roman through brilliant Bartolommeo. This museum opens at 8:30 AM so it is a perfect way to start your day.

This was an interesting museum, with some very ancient artifacts and lots of Renaissance painting. It was a pleasant way to spend an hour or so.

This is a relatively unknown and unappreciated museum containing a very interesting collection of art. The Gothic and Renaissance pieces are some of the best I have seen in Europe. If you overlook the few poorly displayed pieces, you will find your visit very well...More

The Etruscan and Roman artefacts are fascinating as are the Mediaeval pieces but the later religious items leave me cold; perhaps that's just me. Located in a rather vacant and strangely desolate part of Lucca. Not well presented or equipped for visitors - no cafe...More
