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 entire corridor of books is on display. They are richly illustrated with beautiful gold and blue inks, which were very expensive at the time they were created. That the books are so well preserved is remarkable. This was (for us) the best part of the museum.

Whilst the actual museum has limited information in English and is predominately religious the visit into the tunnels was excellent and was well worth a visit

On our recent European trip, we spent five days in Chiusi, a small southern Tuscan Hill town, from which we also managed side trips to Assisi and Montepulciano. One of the highlights in our learning about the history of Chiusi was our visit to the Museo della Cattadrale and it's associated undergroung labyrinthe, used by the Etruscans as a water system. The very helpful personnel at the excellent Tourist Information, across the street from the Piazza Cattedrale, had suggested the visit, and we were pleased to have taken the guided tour of the labyrinth and an unguided tour through the museum proper.

Terrible, a guide just speaking Italian and not doing the slightest effort of translating in English. The tower could not be climbed for mysterious 'security' reasons while it was still advertised. Rip off.

we have visited the Museo della Cattedrale during our stay in Chiusi. The Museum is a typical small italian diocesan museum with some interesting and precious pieces (medieval manuscripts, church furnitures, silver objects, paintings, wood sculptures).
