Perhaps my expectations were too high, but I found this quite a let down. As others have noted, the collection is limited in size and scope. That didn't bother me so much, but the presentation was disappointing. Except for a couple of rooms on the ground floor and some key pieces in other parts of the museum, the displays were lacking. Most pieces give the basics of artist and title, but I wanted more historical info about the artist, the subject matter, and composition. Also, some areas are poorly lit, and one or two rooms are quite crowded. I'm hoping that this collection will evolve. Even if they don't acquire more objects, the display can definitely be enhanced.
If you're interested in religious art and know something about religious symbolism, you will probably find this a pleasant way to spend an hour. For those interested in Mattia Pretti, know that some of his key pieces are currently. The building itself is very nice. Make a point of looking up at the ceilings and spaces over the doors as some of these have artwork. People who are tight on time and are getting their fill of religious art and portraits of Grand Masters at other sites should consider passing this one in favor of other sites.
