Recently at Umbria jazz festival & we had a rainy day. Went here to pass a little time. I am glad that we went. Made one more aware of the medieval art from Italy. However, unless you are into Renaissance & pre-Renaissance art, you'll likely spin round the collection like we did without too much homing in or real grasp... More

I had been to this museum four years ago and found the collection quite good, very intelligently arranged, and in a "modern" museum mode inside an historic building. [If you have read about the Brera in Milan you will understand.] So this year I told my friends that it was worth the two hour drive from the Chianti area of... More

I am woefully unschooled in Italian art and this museum added a lot to my knowledge. There are some beautiful works here and it's a very doable museum - not overwhelming like many larger museums.

Thank you for the five stars vote on our museum. The artworks of Perugino hosted in our rooms represent the local production of his late period and are widely known in art history. Visiting the Galleria Nazionale dell'Umbria is a must for those who are interested in Perugino's work. More

Please take at least 2 hours to visit all of this museums many rooms. It specializes in regional art from the 13th century on with the displays superbly organized and lit. It probably would be better to hire a guide knowledgeable in the art but just on a walk through you can understand the strength of the museum. If possible... More

We were both very much looking forward to our visit to Galleria Nazionale dell'Umbria, and delighted when we found out we could visit for free as it was the first Sunday of the month.

We appreciate your visit to the Galleria Nazionale dell'Umbria. The religious content of our museum is not a deliberate choice but it dates back to 1861 when the properties of the religious orders where confiscated by the new Italian government. All the paintings hosted in churches and convents were transferred to state-owned museums. Thus the great amount of religious related... More

This is a very impressive gallery and we should have allowed more time for it. We came to see the Piero della Francesca altarpiece in Room 11, but we found a beautiful completely intact altarpiece by Fra Angelico as well, both STUNNING! But the gallery is vast and has lots of paintings by Perugino and Pinturicchio that we rushed by... More
