Destined to remain concealed beneath the finished work, the precious “sinopia” is the only graphic work that we still have of the early masters, for drawings on paper or parchment that have survived from way back in the Middle Ages are extremely...more
Words like breathtaking, extraordinary, spectacular spring to mind. The frescoes and tapastries, larger than a house, some of them, just magnificent. It’s hard to imagine the dedication and minutiae, the time the restorations must have taken. Some of the sculptures would rival any you could...More
To be completely honest, we visited here as it was included in the price of our multi-attraction ticket. For academics interested in frescoes, this would probably be a must-see! The place is well laid out and very clean, but I'm glad we left it until...More
Very informative museum about the development of frescos and how the restoration work is undertaken. Also some impressive etchings done on a much smaller scale. If you come here, suggest that you go to the camposanta first, as the restoration work will have more meaning...More
Quite a lot of information given on how frescoes were actually painted. On display were beautiful outline of paintings made with red earth. Looked so exquisite. A must visit place to gain an understanding of the creation of frescoes.
Didn't make it past the entrance with the staff. First staff member, a man, was so dismissive and laughed in our faces went to a woman who decided her computer screen was far more important that us to look at and never even glanced up....More
In order to enter the amazing buildings that surround the leaning tower of Pisa you will need to visit the museum to obtain a (free) ticket.
We attempted this on two separate days without success (too late and too busy). Which was frustrating but not...More
We visited the Museo delle Sinopie last, after having visited the Leaning Tower, Cathedral, Baptistery and the cemetery. If we are honest, this to us, was a bit uninteresting as it is not really our thing.
The reason we visited is because we purchased tickets...More
The most uninteresting runaround of a museum ever. Very specialist and narrow subject where half of the exhibition is about how the fresco sketches were saved and the rest a pointless display unless you are an academic specialising in the field. Only good point is...More
We visited this museum as part of our multi attraction ticket. Although I can understand some of the negative comments in other reviews, we actually found it very useful and quite intriguing on the insights that it gave into the history of the Camposanto. Well...More
My dad read an article in The Sunday Times (UK newspaper) saying how this museum was rubbish, but offered good views over the Campo Dei Miracoli, however when we got there, the upper floor was closed for renovation. The museum offers some information into frescoes...More
