This museum had a collection of modern sculpture by the Sicilian El Greco. The pieces were interesting, (but repetitive in content) mostly of people who appear to be sleeping or in a daze. There was no catalogue (I asked and was told there wasn't one) and no description of the individual works. Not a must see.

The museum was a bit difficult to find the entrance. When we did, there was no one checking tickets. Since we had the Orvieto Carta Unica ticket, we already had a ticket. It was an interesting museum which had some artifacts from the Duomo. But if you are running out of time sightseeing in Orvieto, this is one I suggest... More
