“Unmissable”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

A superb collection of Italian medieval through Late Renaissance art from the Umbria region. Most of the subject matter is religious, and the strength of the collection is, in my opinion, the 13th and 14th centuries. Unmissable to understand the great importance that Perugia attained during the Middle Ages. Gorgeous images of the Madonna and Child, lots of altarpieces, and some very impressive large-scale crucifixes. The building itself is medieval (Palazzo dei Priori), so it helps put everything into context.

“Fantastic art gallery no queues”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

This is a fabullous art gallery and we were lucky enough to see a comprehensive exhibition of Renaissance paintings. Everyone flocks to the Uffizi and the Vatican however there is amazing art to be seen in Umbria with no queues or crowds.

“Wonderful Signorelli exhibition”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

There was an exhibition of Luca Signorelli's works loaned from Galleries in various countries. It was more than excellent and well worth the extra 8 euro admission charge. The rest of the Galleria was free to over 65's and had many good religious works of art over the centuries but palled in cotrast to Signorelli.

“Great - if you are looking for religious art”
Reviewed October 23, 2011

This gallery has a wonderful collection of Umbrian art from the 13th to the 19th century. However you should be aware that all the older stuff is religious in nature and although it is of the highest quality, the unchanging subject matter can wear a bit thin for anyone other than a real enthusiast

“Beautiful Gallery & Good Value.”
Reviewed August 21, 2011

I visited the Gallieria Nazionale dell'Umbria as it opened- 8.30 am.
No crowds-splendid gallery layout and a well curated collection. A pleasure to visit. I purchased the card that provided access to multiple historical sites around the city along with a free audio guide and map for €10. Excellent value.
