It's something to do, I mean, if you're hanging out in Anghiari, why not? It's not a must-see, or a reason to visit this gorgeous little town. There's an OK movie about the unfinished Da Vinci painting in Florence. The reason this painting is even mentioned is because the subject is the "Battle of Aghiari," however, the painting isn't here. The place is really small, it's right across the street from Museo di Palazzo Taglieschi. 4€ is too much money for this tiny place. The most interesting thing to me was the firearms from the 1700's.

Disappointed with the lost Leonardo exhibit
May 2019 • Couples
We toured the museum because the Lost Leonardo exhibit was advertised, but we were disappointed with the exhibit which barely shows the painting / fresco itself. While the documentary was interesting, the content was a little weak.

Very interesting museum tells a long history.

Besides focusing on the famous battle of Anghiari between the Milanese and the Florentinese this museum explains the long history of the city and the importance of the Tiber River over thousands of years. Lots of steps make this visit difficult for some people

Simple but nice Museum
Jul 2018 • Couples
We popped into this museum because our B&B host in a nearby village (Castiglione Fiorentino) recommended it. It is laid out over 4 floors of an old building. It is not air conditioned so the upper floors are a little warm, but they are worth it. The upper floor has a great description and fabulous model about the battle for Anghiari back in the 1400's which was key to Florence winning and keeping this area of Tuscany under its control.

We only spent an hour at the museum but were glad we did. Also, the area around the Museum has some very scenes - beautiful streetscapes with flowered windows, brick arches, and more.

Insight into history of area

Well laid out
Jul 2017 • Couples
The museum is named after the 1440 battle fought on the plain below the town between Florentines and the Milanese. It contains a model of the battle and detailed explanations about the fate of the lost Leonardo painting. There are also several rooms about the history and culture of the locality. Well worth an hour or so...

Not too much battaglia, but a lot of other stuff
Sep 2016
Anghiari owes its lasting fame beyond Ital to the fact that Leonardo was commissioned to paint a scene from the battle on at which the Florentines triumphed over the Milanese on one of the walls of the council chamber in Florence. Unfortunately, only notes, sketches and a Vasari description survive. Nevertheless, this little museum capitalises on its fame with displays of the history of the Tiber valley (where Anghiari is) from prehistoric times (on the ground floor) up to ceramics and firearms of the 18th and 19th centuries. A video with actors in period dress recreates the disastrous experiment that resulted in Leonardo's mural melting off the wall, while lead soldiers line up to do battle. The walled garden is disappointing.

Very good for information about the battle and the lost Leonardo picture
Sep 2016 • Friends
As another reviewer says this is more information than exhibits, but the quality of the information is very good. I learnt a lot about the battle and also about the picture by Leonardo which was lost and painted over by Vasari. The film recreating the failed encaustic technique Leonardo used ( which didn't fire properly and the paints ran) was vivid and lively.
The one stunning exhibit is a small beautiful Roman era rock crystal statue of the god Pan in the room on local excavations.

Good historical information
Sep 2015 • Couples
Located right inside the walled city, this inexpensive museum is worth a visit to gain historical information about the town and region.
