Pinacoteca e Museo Civico is a museum located in the old town of Volterra, a medieval city in Tuscany Region, in the center of Italy. It is a small museum, where you can see some paintings and, at the end of the exposition some amber figures (typical from the region). Nice to visit, if you walk around the old town.

Great collection of 15th and 16th century paintings. The Deposition by Fiorentino and Signorelli's Madonna and Child with saints are the standouts. Balance of other works and alabaster exhibition is worth avisit

I spent a day with a friend in Volterra as a tourist. We bought Volterra cards so we could visit all the museums, including this museum. Interesting museum with many historic displays of local interest. Collection was eclectic and the manner was display was odd, but... worth a visit if you are in Volterra.

This museum, which was included in our 16 euro Volterra Pass, is a bit confusing to navigate. There are many small rooms which do not connect well. I suppose that is because this museum is housed in an old palazzo. There are beautiful religious works of art, as well as wooden statues and medieval ceramics. Two of the outstanding artworks are an altarpiece by Ghirlandaio and a piece by Luca Signorelli.

With paintings and sculptures gathered from Volterra’s churches, mostly the works of Tuscan artists from 14th to 17th century, this gallery is well worth the visit. There are some exciting masterpieces on display here, but the building itself is very interesting too. The Palazzo Minucci-Solaini was built at the end of the 15th century, with many similar features as the Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, and its design is attributed to Antonio da Sangallo, the Italian Renaissance architect.

See the Deposition from the Cross by Rosso Fiorentino. It is stunning and represents a transition to the modem style of painting in 16th century

Lots of other local religious art in the gallery.

The alabaster exhibition is quite good too

A splendid collection of late medieval and renaissance paintings hosted in a beautiful palazzo in the city centre.

Was great to get away from the religious exhibitions and enjoy art fro its own sake. Was fairly quiet while we were there which was also a bonus. A hidden gem. I almost didn't want to comment in case it gets too popular.

Of all of the 6 museums that were included as part of the Volterra Card, this was not the top of the list for a visit. To be honest, after a week in Italy, i had been totally religious-arted out and was beginning to empathise with what the Goths thought when they sacked Rome. However, this place was a complete delight. The ground floor and basement were taken up with photographs of pop icons from the 60s (some classic Bowie and Stones prints in full glory) as well as some still from some iconic films. The upper floors had more religious art, but it had been interspersed with modern pieces (as part of the Rosso Fiorentino exhibition that is running across the city). Thoroughly enjoyed this museum and would go back again.
