Once we managed to get inside lots to see and admire. Unfortunately very little information in English. Custodian, unhelpful with poor English. Reduced fees not available other than to under 18 EU citizens.

For a small fee it was a great little museum to get us out of the rain. The collection is way bigger than you would think upon entering the museum. Kids under 18 are free.

We were blown away by this small unimposing museum. We spend a great deal of time in Italy searching out older pieces of art and were amazed to find such a great collection at the national Museum of San Matteo. Whereas you might see the...More

When we arrived (midwinter) a small typewritten notice said museum open at 2, 4 and 6. It was 2.20pm and door firmly shut. Returned at 6, door opened briefly to allow us to enter, closed again a few minutes later. So we had the museum...More

This museum is a definite gem and highly recommended. Don’t be put off by the very ordinary exterior. It houses some amazing art dating from the 12th century. The lower floor starts with some sculptures, and a small but very pretty pond garden. But the...More

A lovely and quiet museum, peaceful to visit. However, despite some interesting exhibits it is quite small and there are better things to do in Tuscany. Only worth seeking out if you find yourself in Pisa and you're stuck for something to do.

It is a very informativ museum. Thanks God, we were very few people who visited. It is exceptional. Don't miss it, if you have enough time in Pisa.

Spent two hours viewing the exhibits; only three other people were there during my visit. It was an experience akin to meditation. There was no rush to try to see everything and no one elbowing you to move along.
