They are paintings very marked by religion but by great artists such as Raphael, Caravaggio, Piero de la Francesca... At times it can become heavy to see such similar paintings but if you like art you should go. Students of training sciences, that is, master enter for free showing the tuition. And children under 25 only pay 2 euros only have to show the ID.
I enjoyed the collection, but the ticket seller was incredibly rude. Despite it saying that EU teachers in arts (INCLUDING literature) were permitted free entry, she did not accept my Dutch university ID. I told her that literature was listed in the subjects on the board behind me and she simply ignored me. This honestly colored my visit, and I was left unable to enjoy the art as much as I would have liked.
Definitely get the audio guide and be prepared with a proximity card for your payment as for some odd reason they did not have the capability of accepting the usual chip card. Fortunately, Google Pay worked.Great museum, but really unfriendly staff at the ticket desk. One particular woman was very difficult to deal with. I enjoyed the collection - not too large, but probably wouldn't return.
