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.

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.

Like the Etruscan Museum, this one suffered from a lack of signage to explain the works presented. Lighting was also poorly done, making the works difficult to photograph. The museum was small so it was worth the short time it took to walk through but is not a place one should consider a necessary visit while in Volterra.

There are treasures of medieval art here - paintings, stone sculpture and more. Yet the collection is small enough that you can truly appreciate each piece.

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.
