Eight euros entrance , cool spacious and full of examples of religious iconography ...mother and child ...the Ascension ...etc. delivered by different Renaissance master. Interesting to compare the range of styles, colours , details , backgrounds . Just a little background information is enough to make it fascinating.

If your interests revolve around renaissance and some medieval art then you can come here. The pieces are representative of a time when the influence of the church was overwhelming but this does nothing to diminish their appeal, in my opinion.

Spent two hours in this museum and enjoyed the different pieces of art, largely from the Renaissance period. There were a lot of pieces that featured Madonna, which I think reflected the unity between Christianity and the state during that period. Adult tickets cost €8 and the audio guide is €3 a piece. You should plan about two hours for... More

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

Well worth the price of admission! Exhibit information and item descriptions were in Italian and English. Lots of historically significant items pertaining to Perugia, including paintings and sculptures. Loved it.

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.

Management response:

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
