The Museum is housed in the ancient Palazzo Madama, a building that dates back many centuries and there are Two Towers on one side that clearly show it's part in early fortifications. The main entrance now is through a marble facade added much later. The building can be visited on four floors plus a basement and houses a treasure trove of objects including very impressive early paintings and large displays of porcelain from the various factories. The Fourth floor is an open viewing area of most of the city and worth a visit on it's own. We were especially impressed by the descriptive boards which were also maximised for Braille users. The religious paintings and icons on the ground floor are particularly impressive. However the controllers of the building have decided to provide free wifi to any visitors and whilst this is in many ways a commendable action, it has resulted in the building, particularly the street level floor, being treated by many student visitors as a convenient point for Internet access rather than a space to enjoy the displays.
