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.

This interesting exhibit is well worth your time. Lots of interesting rooms and works of art, but less a museum than a historic government building which has preserved its key treasures and rooms. I recommend it.

I love the old buildings and this one is in a big square. It’s really great for pictures. It’s also a short walk to the big church. A must see if you are in town.

Courtyard views of the torre del mangia were very nice. Museum itself was a small complex of majestically frescoed rooms heralding Siena's long-gone golden age.

Really gorgeous and impressive museum! Lots of history and absolutely stunning rooms. Probably the most impressive site / museum so far!

Such a lovely space to explore Siena's detailed history as a city! Most people will pass over the museum when purchasing their tickets to go up the tower, however it's an interesting exploration into exactly why the building is there in the first place! Written guides are throughout to add context to the various frescoes and room designs.

There is a veranda around the back of the museum that overlooks some beautiful Tuscan countryside - it's not the usual view of the city, but a special one nonetheless!

Located on the main square
It s the museum
Stuck to the highest tower of the city
Unfortunately today the tower access was closed
Doesn’t matter the few palazzo chambers are really well preserved and so colorful
You have an access ta a nice terrace that offer a Tuscany campagne view

Beautiful building and a surprisingly interesting museum with so many frescoes. Currently the art exhibition “Visionari” by Emanuele Gianelli, Visionari is temporarily featured in the basement and it is delightful and well worth visiting.

Interesting building with some amazing ceilings. Boy, did those guys work at making ceilings features! Some other great paintings on walls too. Not supposed to take pics but people were… We probably spent the best part of an hour there; worth the visit!

Motivated by Hisham Matir's book, A month in Siena, to see Lorenzetti's three frescoe panels on the Allegory of the Good and Bad Government. After up and down the museo, learned in the gift shop that the frescos are being restored. Would have appreciate some heads up on the multiple reference websites. Disappointed.

The FAMOUS FRESCOES ARD CLOSED until .., who knows when? Waste of time.

By the way, the famous floors of the cathedral are covered 10 months of the year, and the famous fountain in the baptistery is completely covered

Your time might be better someone in some other town.
