“We were disappointed”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

The cost was high, and the displays were rather dull. A wine tasting was included in the price, the but time of day didn't suit us for wine tasting. Generally, we'd hoped to see a more comprehensive display of local history and artefacts.

“Church & Museum Combined”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

I have been visiting this museum since the 1980's and it's a wonderful experience. It combines the quiet, hushed atmosphere of a church with the variety of a museum. Well worth the visit.

“Benozzo”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Benozzo Gozzoli frescoes do not really need any additional recommendation - if you do not know the name, just google it.

“Brilliant. A must”
Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

Not being a museum person I wasn't too keen on following my husband into yet another museum. Wow, I'm glad I did. It was wonderful. Well worth the entrance fee. The fresco's were the best i have seen. The coffee in the cafe is good too. If you are in montefalco this is a must, in fact I would travel to see it again.

“Benozzo Gozzoli frescoes”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We visited Montefalco coming from Trevi; some local friends new about this little treasure of Italian Reinassance. The frescoes by Benozzo Gozzoli are in the church which is part of the museum. Almost all chapels in the church have frescoes and you get a broscure with explainations with your ticket (6 euro). In the apse they are from Benozzo and depict the story of St. Francis.
The village has a star plan and the central square is full of small places where you can drink a glass of vine and eat something in the terrasse (the square...)

In the pinacoteque there is also a remarquable painting of Antoniazzo Romano
