The museum has a variety of things to see, including Etruscan artifacts. The highlight is the painting attributed to Caravaggio, 'Portrait of a Gentleman'.

A small, under-visited museum just off the main square. The museum starts with Etruscan artifacts including a fantastic large Etruscan stone door and pottery and then includes paintings. There is a very good, interactive display that describes the restoration, conservation, potential subject, and reattribution of...More

We stopped in because of its Etruscan collection and did see a number of nice and interesting artifacts. (Must visit Museo Ghuillia in Rome, near Borghessi gardens to visit the world class Etruscan museum). Otherwise it was interesting to view art with a local focus...More

This is a great little museum with its own rediscovered Caravaggio, and also beautifully set out Della Robbia terracottas and interesting Etruscan objects. Well worth a visit.

This is a very interesting Museum. It is worth the visit. You will see amazing artifacts and artwork. It is quiet impressive for a small town.

The star attraction here for me was the poster proclaiming they had an original painting by one of the grand masters. Despite extensive reading about this seventeenth century maestro, I had never seen this painting getting a mention before. Having seen it, I am sceptical...More

Unfortunately, the old monastery was closed for repairs, but the art was breathtaking. The theme was regional history and had paintings that took you back to those times. We started our stay in Montepulciano there and it was the perfect way to start the mindset.

like the title suggests, literally nothing is described in any other language than Italian. Whilst they had a few interesting pieces, none of them had any context for us, hence I would not suggest it was worth the €8 price of entry.
