Worth a quick look around the historic rooms but not much context given in English. Still, its free so cannot complain! Booking is mandatory online ahead of time- they don't allow walk-ins, regardless of how busy it is.

This is Modena's town hall, in Piazza Grande opposite the cathedral. Not only is the exterior stunning with its still-working clock tower but you can also enter several rooms which are full of paintings, for free (but due to COVID you have to book an entrance time before on-line or by phone and show your EU COVID Digital Certificate or equivalent).

impressive Building at the Piazza Grande, it forms great combination with the Duomo, which is right beside. The Arcades are lovely to stroll along

We were attracted by the beautiful clock tower and the elegant exterior of the Palazzo Comunale, so we decided to explore it further. We were there on a weekday, so the entrance was free. On the second floor, the attendant showed us the directions to the state rooms and it was a really nice surprise to see such a beauty in a building where people work every day.

The story of the Siege of Modena (43-42BC) is masterfully depicted in Nicoló dell’Abate frescoes of the Hearth Room. The Room of the Old Council is also very beautiful.

It does not take long to visit the Palazzo which certainly leaves one more precious memory of gorgeous Modena.

This was one of the places that I spent time at because I wondered past it. Maybe if I knew the history it would have ment more but that day it was just a place to pass the time.

We walked 750 meters southwest from our Hotel Europa to this UNESCO destination. Its the active center of this city with the Duomo, Torre Dell'Orologio, cafes, and restaurants all around. Our focus was visiting the upper rooms of City Hall; large painted, historical and free to enter.
There is something of interest for everyone here.

There is plenty to do in downtown Modena. For me, I would definitely tour this beautiful building if it is raining; otherwise it depends upon your time or specific interests. Skip it if you are limited on time.
