When we visited on March 26, the doors were opened and we wandered in to look around, but a gentleman told us to leave. It was closed and was being readied for an April 1 opening.
Palazzo Vallemani is home to the City art gallery this palace was constructed in the late 16th century by the Vigilanti family, passing to the Giacobetti family. It was then passed to the city of Assisi and became home to the Civic library in 1893. It is also currently home to the Civic Art Gallery. Two stone columns supporting a balcony over the entryway flank the entry portal.

Museum of Religious Art
Apr 2019 • Couples
This is a museum of religious art. It contains many beautiful frescos and oils rescued from other locations. Most the art is well documents with information as to origin, artist if known, and date, in English.

It is housed in a Palazzo which in itself is worth the visit. The library is also interesting.

It is part of a combined ticket that also allows entry to Museo e Foro Romano and Rocca Maggiore.

Some Surprises!
Sep 2017 • Couples
My husband and I bought a ticket to see Rocca Maggiore and for a few extra Euros, this attraction and one other were added.

It was close to the end of the day and I was not very enthusiastic about more art, having been to see Basilica of St. Francis and braved the crowds. What really made this exhibit interesting to me was the section honoring individuals who were key for helping to preserve Assisi in difficult times. There were photographs for example, of a German officer who was a doctor and persuaded the German military to establish hospitals for soldiers in Assisi. Apparently this action kept the town from being bombed. The doctor was honored after the war in Assisi.

There were others honored as well but the doctor stood out for me. Seeing a large photo of a German soldier was rather startling in the exhibit but it was an interesting footnote to Assisi's history.

Most of the art was religious, what you'd expect in Assisi, but there were some paintings of saints that made me want to learn more about them. Saint Roch for example, is depicted in a number of paintings with a wound on his upper thigh (different paintings show the wound on different legs). Apparently he is showing his wound(s) attributable to the plague, which he survived.

Amazing Frescos in a Gorgeous Baroque Palace
Jun 2016 • Friends
Like the previous reviewer, I only went here because I bought a combo city pass (8 euros) which includes the Foro Romano (also highly recommended: walk on a Roman road!) and the Rocca Maggiore. Unlike the previous reviewer, I loved it!

First, the collection is housed in the Vallemani Palace, so all the ceilings have highly decorated baroque paintings, particularly the library, which I loved. Second, the pictures on the walls are primarily composed of frescos that have been taken down from local churches.

As I understand it (my Italian is imperfect, at best), there was a time when the artists working on the S. Francis Basilica were booted out (reason unclear). They didn't go home, but started painting at other churches. The frescos here come from these churches.

I loved them. For one, they are all at eye-level, so you don't have to break your neck, peering upwards, trying to see all or any of the details. And it looks like what they took down to preserve were some of the best parts, particularly some very beautiful Marys (I've attached photos of my favorites).

The visit will only take an hour, at most, but it is well worth it if you like frescos.

Large collection of religious art housed in the Vallemani Palace
Sep 2014 • Couples
This was the third museum on a three part ticket for 8 Euros so we decided to take a look. It is a big collection of mainly religious artwork, including one attributed to Giotto. Amazingly well preserved.

The building itself (Villemani Palace) is also beautiful. I don't think we'd have bought a ticket specifically for this place but worth a look around if you have the time.

There was also a temporary exhibition of remembrance 1934-1944. Interesting history, printing presses and photos all added to the more recent history of the area.

No map on the leaflet meant we had a bit of a walk to find it. Keep walking down the road where the Foro Romano is and you'll get there!

Small museum of medieval religious art
Assisi was my first stop during an Italian holiday, and entry to the Pinacoteca came with the combination ticket that included the Rocca Maggiore. If Assisi is not the first stop on your travels in Italy and you have been looking at religious art elsewhere, you might want to pass on this museum. The exhibit is only a few rooms, and most who are not there to closely study the artwork should be able to see everything in well under an hour.
