“Great Museum”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

This is a really well laid out museum with some fantastic religious items. The gold, diamond and silver items are truly magnificent. You can opt for a ticket deal which includes the Cathedral for an extra Euro and this gives you access to a part of the Cathedral which is sectioned off to other visitors. For the museum you can get an audio guide which is also a Euro extra and I would highly recommend this as it gives you much more information on the items and the corresponding period in Luccas history.

“sacred art at its top”
Reviewed 24 November 2012

the collection of sacred items, statues, jewels, church accoutrements and other things is simply to remember. Beautiful building, perfect "warm" mix of modern materials in an old structure frame, good audioguide service. Very detailed bookshop: too many old postards and memorabilia for my personal tastes but...

“Volto Santo”
Reviewed 17 October 2012

If you want to see how actually looked Le Volto Santo, you have to visit all museums around the Cathedral and inside it.

“Full of Religious Bling”
Reviewed 30 July 2012

Nicely laid out and easily accessible across all three floors with a lift. It's not particularly big, but boy does it have some great religious bling. Some beautiful gold ornaments and a range of crowns and decorative gold for the large wooden icon that can be found in the Cathedral next door. Currently undergoing restoration but that does not distract from overall visit

“Interesting museums”
Reviewed 29 June 2012

The cathedral and museums are interesting but seems little visited. The area around the cathedral is not fully developed which contrasts with the Piazza St Michelle where the non-finished cathedral stands.
