It is free but also not very much: a “toy“ model of the city anno 1300 without any additional explanations.

Definitely check this out after climbing Terre Grossa. This would be amazing for kids to see and imagine what the town was like in 1300. So similar still!

This is a model of the city around 1300. It is interesting to compare with the todays buildings. It doesn't take too much time to visit it.

Yes, most travel agencies have excursion trips. But there is a train that can bring you to the San Gimignano area and from the station you can take a cab.
