What a fabulous day in the walled city. Mass first up and then seat in front of open area where Harvest Mass was Blessed. Italian regions joined by trumpets, flags, dancers. Was amazing day. With great food and cocktail drinks. Very lucky we were there at the time of Festival.

We visited this free small museum with the guide from official information office. Definitely recommended. Guide explained to us the 3-D model that was on display along with the town history. Its not in square but in side street. I will also recommend the official guided tour which you can book in information office.

San Gimignano 1300 is a exposition, where you can see a big model of medieval San Gimignano and it is located in the old town, in this wonderful town of Tuscany Region, in the center of Italy. In this place, you see this wonderful model, where there are the towers, the wall, the streets and squares and obviously the normal houses. It is a very interesting and nice place to come with children or obly adults.

The museum itself is absolutely magical, and at 5 euros each a whole lot cheaper than I expected. The reproduction of the town was just beautiful, the guide (who spoke wonderful English) was funny and answered all of our questions and the other staff were so helpful they even gave us tips on how to use the public transport system to visit Florence! Way beyond what I expected, an absolute must-visit and by far the friendliest people that we met in San Gimignano!

Visited on our trip to Tuscany. Hillside village with lots to see. Park on the bottom of the area and walk up - uphill for sure. Loved visiting the shops and bringing back Olive wood pieces. Wish I had bought more. Very friendly. Walk the side streets for real shopping treats.

I can't say enough how enlightening this little museum is. I highly recommend doing this first and then checking out the rest of the city. It only takes about 20 minutes and a guide will explain all (in medieval costume). Very neat ceramic representation of San Gimignano in the 1300's. The tour ends at iSculpture which has modern Italian art from the surrounding area and the owners are friendly and helpful.

It was the atmosphere we fell in love with San Gimignano and the treasure hunt made it unforgettable. The first time we just visited the museum and had a look around - Francesca was the best example of the talented and well prepared guide - but we were welcomed in a way that wanted to be repeated. During the second visit we get the information from the treasure hunt and we realised that this gives more than the most exciting history lesson. It took more than four hours to complete the quest - we were very thorough (and slow) - but the treasure that was chosen for us by the museum staff was worth it. Thank you!

Visited San Gimignano 1300 a couple weeks ago and really enjoyed the museum. We had a very nice tour of the museum with our guide Christina who was wonderful. She spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable about the history of San Gimignano. It was a nice way to spend an hour or so. Good place for kids to learn.

A great little museum with a whole model of the town from Medieval times. The staff are really lovely and one of them dressed up in typical, Medieval garb. They really have a good knowledge and take care of the exhibition well!
