This was a very enjoyable to have a look around for about an hour. The staff were very helpful when we needed English translations for the different artefacts. Also as we were both students we got in for free so that was great!

A very pleasant and fairly small museum, but the outstanding attraction are the elaborately sculpted medieval tombstones showing law professors and their students taking notes.

Large collection. Interesting. Even if you do not take the English audio package there is English cards with information in every section.

Lots of the treasures in this museum are familiar, but I’d never seen funerary sculptures for professors before: instead of the usual battles or religious scenes on the side of a sarcophagus, Bologna has a handful of characterful students struggling over the lessons, arguing with...More
