  • The clerk didn't want to let us in. We buy tickets in advance by Vivaticket for a Tuesday the 17:30. We got three minutes late and the ticket clerk didn't want us to come in! Despite having the voucher with the entrance paid. The museum closed the 18:00. They erased the lights from one of the rooms to 17:45. Other staff in the rooms clearly showed that they wanted to close the museum, even before closing time. We can see everything until 18:00, but we feel a lot of the museum's... The collection is beautiful and the place is special! But the staff.... A pity!

  • This museum is a gem! Very lovely art, impressive Da Vinci notebook pages, very doable size. Admission for us was part of a Last Supper package, but this is worth doing by itself as well. One of our favorite stops in Italy.
  • Very nice place with a lot of original paintings. You can find there Carrivagio ‘fruit basket’ and Botticelli. The building is historical and very beautiful. In the center there is a garden.
