If you like Crhistian iconography and peace and quiet rather than crowds while soaking in it, this is the place for you. A little hard to find due to nondescript signage, but get close and ask as we did. We had the place for ourselves...More

We made a return visit to Siena to specifically visit the Pinacoteca, which we were unable to visit on our previous trip. It was good, though I thought there would be more work by notable artists of the time period; there were a couple of...More

The museum was opened in 1932 and is located in two palaces in the city’s center. The gallery has a remarkable collection of paintings, especially from medieval and Renaissance era, mostly from Italian artists. This is an exhibition that should be on everyone’s plan during...More

The Pinacoteca Nazionale Museum of Siena exhibits over 500 works of luscious gilded Medieval religious art. Most of these works were removed from abbeys that had closed, earlier from inactivity, and later due to Napolean's forced closer of church buildings. The works were closeted away...More

Mainly medieval and a bit of Renaissance. The main problem was that when we were there they were limiting access to each floor, so we would have to spend an hour on each floor, and then move on. This meant we couldn't look around in...More

In a beautiful palace, the Alabaster is exhibited in newly renovated towers adjacent to the palace, off the inner courtyard. Take a moment to look around and to venture into the towers. The alabaster examples are beautifully displayed, on three floors and carry you into...More

This museum definitely deserves a visit for especially those who want to experience local medieval and Renaissance Art. The museum is a great complement to the Museo Civico which also deserves to be experienced as its frescos and early renaissance art are exceptional as well.
