Loved seeing the stone carvings from the cathedral up close. The white madonna is gorgeous and the Tura paintings are stunning.

“Cathedral Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

I went in expecting chalices etc but was pleasantly surpised. They had beautiful 13th century carvings from the wallsof the cathedral , showing the seasons, Huge illuminated Psalm books from 12th century, and a stunning Madonna and child by Jacobo della Quercia, which looked as perfect as anything could be. This small museum was the best of a number of places worth visitingt in Ferrara

“Lovely small museum, with famous masterpieces”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

The museum is housed since 2000 in the former convent of San Romano, very close to the Cathedral, separated from it only by Piazza Trento e Trieste. Its fame is mainly linked to three masterpieces: the painting of "St. George and the Dragon", which gives an adequate idea of the original style of the Ferrarese painter Cosmé Tura; the "Madonna of the Pomegranate" sculpted by Jacopo della Quercia; the wonderful sculptures of "months" that adorned a door of the Cathedral, which no longer exists (the naturalism of these sculptures of the twelfth century is amazing). It is not to be overlooked a series of tapestries from the sixteenth century and a rich collection of illuminated choir. Visit recommended even to those who are not particularly fond of art.
