€4 entry. Absolutely empty of people. Large cool building stuffed with 13th and 14th century art, mostly religious, as it would be! Some surprises. Queen Elizabeth I and some lovely sketches for frescos and other treasures. Like a lot of places, unloved. Has a huge...More

We visited on a Tuesday - late morning and the place was very quiet. The top floor houses 13th- 15th century Sienese art works by the likes of Martini and the Lorenzetti's. The subsequent floors cover the Baroque and Mannerist art. There is a room...More

Mainly medieval and a bit of Renaissance. The main problem was that when we were there they were limiting access to each floor, so we would have to spend an hour on each floor, and then move on. This meant we couldn't look around in...More

This is some of my favorite art in Italy. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. A specialist would've thought they'd died and gone to heaven. Exquisite.

In a beautiful palace, the Alabaster is exhibited in newly renovated towers adjacent to the palace, off the inner courtyard. Take a moment to look around and to venture into the towers. The alabaster examples are beautifully displayed, on three floors and carry you into...More

This museum definitely deserves a visit for especially those who want to experience local medieval and Renaissance Art. The museum is a great complement to the Museo Civico which also deserves to be experienced as its frescos and early renaissance art are exceptional as well.

Much cheaper than than the Museo Civico with better examples of local Gothic art. The displays are arranged in an attractive building and I was amazed how few visitors it had.

Nice collection of medieval and early-Renaissance art. Duccio, Simone Martini, the Lorenzetti brothers, famous stuff, but the most famous stuff of these guys is found somewhere else either in Siena or even in Florence, the Lourvre, London and so on. Come here to see secondary...More

Siena is known for 13th and 14th century altar pieces and this museum is full of them- lavishly gilded with gold and done in luminous colors. Also, it's not too big and can easily be visited in a morning before lunch or late afternoon.
