Founded in 1923 and located in the cloister of St. Lorenzo Cathedral, the museum assembles various types of artworks. Most interesting are: the painting by Luca Signorelli, by Agostino di Duccio, wooden sculptures, a rare display of illuminated manuscripts and two sections dedicated to ecclesiastic furnishings and liturgical paraments.

On the first day I bought a Perugia Card of 13 euro that allowed free entrance for a minor under 18. I bought the Card at the Tourist office. On the site there is literally written 'A/F CARD €...

This museum is located right next to the Duomo and has some most interesting art and architecture to explore. It can be visited with the Perugia Museums card and we highly recommend it.

Another outing with my 6-year-old grandson after we had explored the Archeo Museum. As usual,due to our ages,we didn't have to pay,but it would have been well worth the nominal entrance fee. He was given a sheet of things to discover,like a treasure hunt,details in paintings or features of a sculture,and for each one you got a point. At the... More

This is a very interesting place. We got to see underground the cathedral. Tours have to be booked beforehand because you can only go with a guide. The guide spoke both english and Italian. We saw ruins 100 years BC, roman times and 13th century. The bad side? Elevator to go back up was not working at the time of... More

A nice place to visit. It offers both art work from the Cathedral (like Domenico Ghirlandaio's beautiful painting) and archeological part.

Our son liked the fact that when we ventured underground we saw archeologists at work and many pieces that have been uncovered as they keep unearthing the past , I liked the fact that upstairs they had a room set up as though a...

Underground archeological site just in the center of town. You can walk on roman streets and see the foundations of houses. The most interesting think is a huge etruscan wall.

The Capitular Museum of San Lorenzo was reopened to the public in 2000, it's entrance is to the side of the church in Piazza IV Novembre and through the 18the century cloisters.
