I should have read the reviews for this museum before going as I was so impressed with the building itself I jumped at the chance to get inside. If you’re a fan of religious Renaissance Art you’re in for a real treat here. If not, I’d skip it and enjoy the building from its exterior and the free main level. There are a few rooms/galleries that still retain frescoes from the original construction as well as an interesting clock tower room. Although I had no interest in the exhibit, I must say that it was probably the most comprehensive collection of religious art I’ve seen anywhere.

This museum has literally rooms and rooms of madonnas and not much else. I was faintly interested by how many wretchedly unattractive madonnas were painted in the 1200s...then there’s a weird little stage when the angels turn into heads with wings. It’s like a morgue for Christianity.

Absolutely incredible gallery of frescos, paintings, and sculptures from around the 13th - 15 th centuries. It’s much larger than we expected and is spread out over two floors. We bought a day pass that got us in to five exhibits total and it was well worth the money

Mainly about religious art but it tell enough of a story of the city along with that even if it is not your thing. Worth a visit.

Huge art space consisting of two floors on the main avenue of Perugia (Corso Vannucci). It contains a wonderful collection of Umbrian art, including Perugino and many others. It’s always a great pleasure to stroll between those beautiful paintings (most of which are on the religious subjects). In one of the rooms you can also find yourself standing behind the huge clock in the wall that shows time on Perugia’s tower. The gallery often has interesting temporary exhibitions. Last year we liked Federico Seneca and Wall of sound by Guido Harari. This year we’ve seen Closed Session by Jimmy Katz and La Madonna Benois by Leonardo da Vinci. When you enter, pay attention to the statues of the griffin and the lion. They are the originals that were on the outside of the Palazzo dei Priori and now are substituted there by the replicas. Griffin is the most important symbol of Perugia. You’ll find it all over the city. The entrance price for the museum is more than reasonable but if you happen to be around on the first Sunday of the month- it’s completely free and includes special exhibitions besides the main collection.
