A great place to visit if it gets cold, rainy or too hot... well, it really doesn't matter, this is a cool place to spend an hour, maybe a little less. We had the chance to see a great photo exhibit with great location pictures of classic films.

We attended an excellent photographic exhibition here as we just happened to be walking by. The exhibition was well laid out over several floors and featured a selection of very interesting photographs, some from classic movies but others less well known.

Small but brilliant museum. I was luck to visit whilst have an expo on De Chirico and the italian surrealists that went to paris. The staff was really nice and helpful. Do not miss, check what they have as you might be missing on some opportunity.

The entrance fee is a bit expensive and I think that the bookshop can be better! But the exhibitions are well chosen, well thought and well prepared! It is worth a visit.

This is the contemporary museum in Lucca and it is a "must" to visit. The exhibitions change often and the museum is very small that it makes for a pleasant experience going from room to room. If you are there around lunch time, don't forget that they have an amazing restaurant inside the museum; L'Imbuto with the incredible chef, Cristiano,... More

9,- € for intrance. I feel this is too much, what for to see. All in all the variety and the number of exhibited pieces is low. All though, I took a spark of inspiration. Don´t expect too much if you saw the MoMA/NY.

This regional museum is a gem. It exhibits traveling international exhibitions of the highest quality while showcasing the local community's artists. The excellent curatorial staff assures the highest quality of these exhibitions and the selection of the best local artists.

the Lucca Center for Contemporary Art is a rather recent addition to a town with much architectural significance. The rotating exhibits are always fascinating and feature various media and two and three dimensional art.
