“Medieval art that you don't usually see!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This museum is inexpensive (5 Euros) and very neat. The art is all Christian-related but beautiful and not often seen. Most art museums focus on Renaissance art but this is medieval. Neat museum.

Really impressive collection of medieval Christian artifacts. The place is maintained very well. There is text in English which was really helpful. Worth a visit.

This was a really interesting museum with lots of reliquary, a treasury and many other interesting items rescued from before WWII bombing runs started.
