We got admission to the museum because we went on a labyrinth tour. I wouldn't recommend the museum on it's own unless you have an interest in religious artifacts. However, we found the illuminated musical manuscripts of Gregorian chants beautiful for their own sake. An...More

The liturgical books are the main attraction here, even by their sheer numbers.... very well maintained. A good stop waiting for the guide to take into the underground tunnels. One price for the two visits.

Wow what a structure made up of so many remnants of Chiusi history. Roman, Etruscan and more. Painters of some various periods.
