Presented over the three floors are an unparalleled collection of Renaisance masterpieces including many monumental alter pieces and some large works by Fillipo Lippi who is rightly renowned but whose exemplary work remains outstanding in the setting of the other masters whose paintings are shown. The uppermost floor has sculptures including a section of Lipschitz donated by the artists family. The light gallery overlooks the city. This museum takes a couple of hours but is well worth the visit.
It is open until 10:00-13:00 but closes during the heat re opening 16:00-20:00. Entrance is €8. There is a useful guide (which is a Bargain for €10) to take home. If one had only one day to visit Prato - the Cathedral, Opera del Duomo cathedral museum in the am - a long lunch and then a visit to this would be achievable - supper and back on the train to Firenze if that's where you are staying.
