I criticized Sicily (Segesta) for appointing people without qualifications to fake positions. Well, the same seems to be true for this Museum in Bologna. When you come inside the Building you buy a Ticket and you go to the right. Before the first hall there's...More

We visited this museum in the Palazzo Ghisilardi in January this year. It is not a huge museum, but it is worth a visit. The displays are exhibited over 3 floors, and it's possible to rent an audio guide, which is worthwhile. The funerary monuments...More

Then wander in here. It’s conveniently located along a rather unexciting shopping street and, probably near your hotel. And if you can figure out the entrance, have patience with the monolingual, sweet but distracted ticket sellers, and tolerate the bemusing, poorly signed ramble of exhibits...More

Some say this is a small museum but it has 22 rooms over two floors, interesting artifacts from around the world including religious and medieval items, armory, weaponry and some lovely stain glass as well as pottery and statues. At €5 you also get entry...More
