Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The museum is exceptional on its own, featuring Flemish and Italian originals pre and post-renaissance, as well as replicas offering a unique insight into everything that set Pisa apart historically.

However, all credit goes to their friendly staff, one gentleman stepping in as our guide, taking us through the whole museum to properly explain and offer insight onto both their most celebrated and most overlooked items on display. Mix that with much insight into the history and specific cultural elements of Pisa - throughout the ages - and you get a guided tour fully deserving of praise. Highly recommended!

Disappointed by this museum and the art collection here. No dates / name of painter / person in the painting. No guide and no detail about what the rooms were used for. Don’t bother..

The Royal Palace was built in the 16th century by Bernardo Buontalenti as a new residence for the Francesco I and the Medici family. The building was refurbished several times and for the last thirty years it houses the National Museum with numerous portraits, paintings, sculptures, tapestries and furniture that belonged to the family. It is an exquisite collection and the testimony of the family’s history.

I get the feeling this little museum is not at the top of the tourist trail which is a pity. We arrived and were provided with an informative and entertaining guide by a very enthusiastic and knowledgable curator. It provides a really interesting history of Pisa and main families including the Medici. Without the guide you would probably miss quite a lot. The staff seem genuinely happy to tell the story so my advise is jet them and enjoy the experience.

You woud need to be interested in the Miedici dynasty to get caught up with the portraits, many of them copies of earlier oil-paintings. But some of the paintings collected by Pisans include some outstanding hangings, like the Rosso Fiorentino Rebecca at the Well or the Benediction of Jacob by Bernardo Strozzi. The room decorations and some furnishings are original and interesting. Each room has a printed handlist that identifies the items on each wall, since the "traditional" hanging is not museum style.
Large bags must be left in lockers in the room behind the ticket /admission counter (5 euros).

I am sure that the people running this think - oh no-one comes so we will only open for half a day. Unfortunately this is a vicious circle, because they have chosen to only open in the mornings, when everyone is at the Leaning Tower etc aiming to see those before the crowds hit. Therefore no-one is here! So when you want to come here ie after 2 pm, this place is shut!

If they really only want to open for half a day they should make it the afternoon! Otherwise it will remain empty!

This is not a very large palace as only a portion is open to the public. But it still contains an interesting collection of arts and statues. Worthwhile visiting.

Opening time to the Palazzo was 9-14.00 and I think there was at least one weekday where it was closed? We visited on Wednesday and paid the 5 euros which were well worth it. Situated on the north side of the river Arno, easily reached from the leaning tower by foot. Some really beautiful exhibits!

This is an old-style museum with lots to look at - preferable to over-curation. The collection spans various royal courts from the 16th to the early 20th century, (miniatures, portraits, sculpture, furniture,'glass and porcelain) with several collections of 20th century art and sculptureo on loan. The ceilings were beautifully painted and a carriage sits in the entry area. I got a feeling for Pisa and Italian history from this museum, and recommend you get this in a combined ticket with the more well-known National Museum of San Matteo.
