I was looking forward to some modern art after seeing far too many religious paintings for my taste in Umbria. Sadly, this collection did not impress. Further, half of the collection seemed to be on loan to other museums. Staff were rude and made me check my bag, but there were others (Italians) in the museum with bags the same... More

We have visited this nice museum and were impressed with the palace, the setting and the interesting art presented there. Yet, were utterly amazed and frankly shocked, to see some works of an Italian artist showing Israeli acts against Palestinians with more than a hint of biased opinion against Israelis and Jews (an understatement!) – including Magen David (David’s Shield),...

I like art. I like modern art. I like contemporary, wacky, paint-spatters-on-the-wall art. But this place is just bad and boring. Even if you have tons of time to kill and one of those "all museums in Spoleto" tickets, don't spend your caloric energy walking around this dreadful museum. And PS: don't waste your money on the all-in-one ticket. The... More

Found the modern art section to be very basic and uninteresting. I would not waste my money visiting again. The teenagers laughed that several bits of art could have been done by someone in kindergarten .... or worse... Their own mother. The first floor, with the ancient art was better... But there was a temporary modern art exhibition housed amongst... More

As this is a modern art museum(usually not my thing), I kept it until the end of my stay. But I was very pleasantly surprised. The modern art is varied and interesting(a whole room by Sol Lewitt !), the museum also has the city ancient painting collection on display(interesting portraits etc) and a photo exhibition and especially : it is...

The collection is extensive with works by modern Italian artists as well as works by Alexander Calder and Sol Lewitt. The three level palazzo itself is a beautiful building to house all of this great artwork and it is definitely worth a visit, although the 9 Euro entrance is probably a bit steep.

This old palazzo has a good collection of modern art, much of it commissioned by the Festival. There are sketches by Calder for his monumental sculpture by the railway station, and some very interesting ceramics. Well worth the visit.

Spoleto is filled with little secrets about Alexander Calder and many other famous Modern Artists like Sol Lewitt
