Interesting museum
Sep 2018 • Couples
The museum is located in the beautiful Palazzo del Commune at the central square of Pistoia. It was founded in the late 19th century, to be officially opened in 1922. There are numerous paintings, sculptures and artefacts on display in the museum, mostly the works of art made by prominent local and Florentine artists. Very interesting museum well worth the visit.

A good museum on local art history
Oct 2016 • Business
It was evident that very few people visit the museum but still the staff was very friendly and the museums is kept well and clean. Some of the paintings are very interesting and worth a visit, however there is no masterpieces. If you have time and is interested in art, visit

It´s very worth visiting this museum.
Sep 2016 • Couples
Being over 60 this museum is free of charge, or else a few EUR. If you expect a Florence type super museum you are not satisfied here. But we enjoyed a rather extensive collection of paintings from the 12th to the 19th century very much and would recommend it to people who are ready to slow-down and enjoy Pistoia in more than a 4 hour run-through. See as well the nice ceiling paintings in the building right opposite - that building has public access in the basement.

Museum tour well worth your time
Oct 2015 • Couples
Located in the centre of town this museum is key to understanding the area and especially the duomo. Guided tours, in English and Italian, cost a few euros with staff that are very knowledgeable. There is also a section of the museum that is in braille for the sightless. Our tour took a little over an hour and I felt like I understood a lot more about the history of Pistoia. Recommended!

A small museum, worth a visit
Dec 2014
Pistoia is a lovely little town and this museum is well located in the centre. It is not large and only takes a short time to visit. A well -trained and informative guide is assigned to take you around. Tour times are on the door. If you're only in the town for a short time, you'll still have time for a tasty lunch. And a bro use around the shops.

Great building, small museum
Oct 2014 • Couples
The building itself is great, a real eye catcher when you enter the square. We did go and see the museum. Some nice paintings and Marquette of well known buildings. Only when you visit the museum, you can also make pictures out off the window of the front of the building. You get a great view of the square from up there. We have seen better museums, but it is not bad.

Several Pleasant Surprises
Oct 2014 • Couples
We were in Pistoia for a day trip from Lucca, and after the Duomo we were quite taken with the building, the Palazzo del Commune, that houses the Museo Civico in the same piazza. The building itself is stunning, and we wanted to see the inside so we decided to spend some time in the museum. We were pleasantly suprised! There are no blockbusters here, but there is an intelligent and well-displayed installation of paintings (also some sculpture) that covers several centuries of Italian art, mostly by Tuscan painters. The didactic materials were in Italian, of course, but also in English, extremely well done, displayed in context, and very relevant to the art we were seeing. We enjoyed the fact that we were able to really see the paintings due to the excellent lighting and the way in which they were hung or mounted. In addition, and also a pleasant surprise, was the extremely helpful and accommodating staff, one of whom even recommended the restaurant where we decided to have lunch. And it, too, was a pleasant surprise.

Worth a visit if you like early Italian painting
Jul 2014 • Couples
Not the Uffizi, but this small museum owns a rare Coppo di Marcobaldo, one of the earliest painters to adapt the style of Byzantine art. It's remarkable. See it if you can avoid Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays when they are closed.

Nice building, but depressing museum
Jul 2013 • Couples
This seems to be a museum of leftovers. Some decent Jesus & Maria's on the ground floor. Do check out St. John making a heavy metal 'death wish' hand gesture on the first triptych, right after the entrance. Hilarious portrays on the third floor: ugly women, fat men, even a smiling man with bunny teeth. Overall: depressing.
