An unexpected treasure in downtown Prato
Jun 2019
The city museum preserves and shows incredible works of art and ancient masterpieces from the middle ages to Renaissance, to modern and contemporary art. It was an unexpected discovery for my friends and myself!

The museum is nicely laid out and located in the inner city of Prato. However, we thought it is far from some the reviews mentioned here. Lots of technical issues that were plaguing the exhibition. Lighting broken, video presentations not available (not working today...) and the lift had issues.

So, we left the museum with a feeling that more could be done with it. Maybe the lack of visitors is causing a cash flow issue?

15th century altarpieces
Dec 2018 • Couples
This is a well curated museum and not so overly large or touristy that you are exhausted by the scope and the crowds. I especially liked the 15th century altarpieces.

Interesting, informative and well laid out museum!
Nov 2018 • Solo
It's a great museum for an introduction to Tuscan artists as you not only see their works of art but if you get the audio guide you can listen to some information and background about the artists too, as well as information about the paintings. Here you can learn about the artists you are most interested in and admire their paintings in a non-crowded museum and then once you have more of an insight into art from this region you can go to face the crowds in Florence and just focus on the certain art works or artists that you are really interested in.

Surprisingly good
Apr 2018 • Couples
Museo di Palazzo Pretorio is a surprisingly good art museum with picture from the medieval period and forward. It is located in the old city hall. In one room there is a film about the history of the building.

Amazing museum showcasing the art and history of Prato
Dec 2016 • Couples
This museum is well laid out and perfectly displays the major works of the civic art collection. Seeing it in Prato adds to understanding and the quality of your visit to Prato. Good for 2 - 3 hours with wonderful views out the windows. We enjoyed a great sunset from the upper floors of the museum while enjoying the art.

This museum is really well done, and we were surprised by that. If you are in town I would check it out. The rooftop view is amazing on a clear day!
