Located temporarily in Bologna's museum of modern art,the Morandi collection is fairly small and lacks diversity. Morandi is an acquired taste and leaves me cold and bored.

I am a big fan of Morandi and couldn't wait to see his exhibition. It is now being housed in the MamBO gallery which was quite close to my hotel so I could walk there. I loved the collection. All cool, calm and tranquil. The main collection at the MamBO was also interesting.

In an attempt to educate myself I decided to visit the Museum of Giorgio Morandi which houses most of the works by the Bolognese painter of the same name. Both the map from the tourist board and the printed information had the location in the wrong place: Piazza Maggiore #6. It’s been temporarily moved to the Museum of Modern Art... More

Small museum in the Palazzo Comunale housing a vast collection of Morandi works. If you like Morandi, take note: the collection will soon be moved into the Mambo museum so the only part missing will be the artist studio which should remain in Via Fondazza 36. You can also see his childhood home, a plain building in a lovely hilly... More

The museum itself is excellent. Morandi seemed to specialise in still lifes, re-arranging and painting the same 6 bottles and jars for 40 years. Also a range of landscapes, and all in a distinctive range of muted shades. This isn't intended to sound negative, very glad we went.

We did not know this artist, but we decided to go to the museum, anyway. Wish we had not. Pavarotti may have appreciated Morandi (his daughters have loaned several pieces to this exhibit), but we did not.

The entrance is very expensive and the exposure is poor and confusing. It is worth going to the entrance of the museum to enjoy part of the palace but that's it. We were not but it has another museum next door which could be worth.

If you are an artist, and you enjoy landscape or still life this place is heaven. Be aware, it is not for everyone though, as the entire museum is dedicated to Morandi and his subject is mostly still life and landscape so can be boring for those that are not interested. For an art lover, you have an amazing opportunity... More

My husband and I went in here on a spur of the moment thing and were charged 6 euros each at the front desk - it certainly wasn't worth anywhere near 12 euros for the two of us. There is a certain sameness about Morandi's work - namely, still life bottles and jars. Interestingly, we saw another six of his... More

We visited the museum on 26 May 2010. On the positive side, the museum is easy to find off the main Piazza Maggiore and has free entry. On the down side, the art on show will be of more interest to the art enthusiast than the casual tourist. Most of the paintings are of landscapes and still life particularly bottles... More
