Spent two hours viewing the exhibits; only three other people were there during my visit. It was an experience akin to meditation. There was no rush to try to see everything and no one elbowing you to move along.

As other reviewers have said, it is quiet, away from the throngs of the Piazza di Miracoli. Lots of Medieval Artwork, and we got in for free. Worth a morning's stroll around.

We barely saw anyone else in the museum while we were there! It was such a hidden gem and we loved spending an afternoon here learning about the history, architecture and art of Pisa. This is really worthwhile, and the collection boasts 12th-13th century painted...More

Despite the crowds elsewhere in Pisa this museum is a haven of peace and quiet. It has a large central courtyard which would be a great place to sit and relax from a hot afternoon's site-seeing. There are some excellent art and antiquarian exhibits (some...More

This must be on everyone's list of essential places to visit in Pisa. Housed in former monastery buildings the works of art are outstanding and beautifully displayed. We spent an afternoon here and were totally absorbed. Wonderful.

This museum was amazing, very easy to find. Don’t be fooled but the exterior there are many hidden gems inside. We were the only visitor it was really great to be able to get close to all the exhibits. The gallery of the painted crucifixes...More

I saw this place covered in some documentary and it appealed. It's a bit of a chore to find - while on a main street, it's tucked away behind an inconspicuous facade. The facade and seemingly ordinary ticket hall will not prepare you for the...More

Strange museum with lots and lots and lots of pictures of Jesus. If you're into that, fair play, but don't go out of your way to visit. Let us in for free though which was ok.
