This museum has medieval artifacts of all kinds: sculpture, books, arms, small curiosities and devotional objects. There are room guides in Italian and English. If you like medieval art, this museum is a good use of your time.

This was a very enjoyable to have a look around for about an hour. The staff were very helpful when we needed English translations for the different artefacts. Also as we were both students we got in for free so that was great!
