A lovely and quiet museum, peaceful to visit. However, despite some interesting exhibits it is quite small and there are better things to do in Tuscany. Only worth seeking out if you find yourself in Pisa and you're stuck for something to do.

It is a very informativ museum. Thanks God, we were very few people who visited. It is exceptional. Don't miss it, if you have enough time in Pisa.

Spent two hours viewing the exhibits; only three other people were there during my visit. It was an experience akin to meditation. There was no rush to try to see everything and no one elbowing you to move along.

As other reviewers have said, it is quiet, away from the throngs of the Piazza di Miracoli. Lots of Medieval Artwork, and we got in for free. Worth a morning's stroll around.

We barely saw anyone else in the museum while we were there! It was such a hidden gem and we loved spending an afternoon here learning about the history, architecture and art of Pisa. This is really worthwhile, and the collection boasts 12th-13th century painted...More

Despite the crowds elsewhere in Pisa this museum is a haven of peace and quiet. It has a large central courtyard which would be a great place to sit and relax from a hot afternoon's site-seeing. There are some excellent art and antiquarian exhibits (some...More

This must be on everyone's list of essential places to visit in Pisa. Housed in former monastery buildings the works of art are outstanding and beautifully displayed. We spent an afternoon here and were totally absorbed. Wonderful.
