A small, high quality collection of paintings and other works of art collected by a local noble family. Well worth a visit. Some monumental works and some small and intricate pieces. Unusual terracotta statuary incluing polychromes.

To take a break from heat and crowds, we visited this museum in the afternoon, and spent about 2 hours admiring the art collection. Nice museum to visit if you have time.

This is a nice art collection from the 14-15th century +16th century. Artists like Corregio, Bassano, Tintoretto and others. Many artists from the area that are not well known to the public but are very good nevertheless. Yona S.

The varied collection of the Museum is "must to see" - from the paintings to the sculptures or porcelains or glass objects. E.g. there is a piano of white carrara marble!
