This museum is smallish, but has some important items in the way of illuminated manuscripts, sculptures and tapestries. Worth the visit- it is included in the museum card.

This museum is a good place to go when you have an odd hour in the historical centre and has several good early Renaissance works. One that stands out for me is the Maddonna Della Melagrana by Jacopo Della Quercia.
