Do not miss this even if, like me, you're not a big fan of religious art. The collection of Medieval altar paintings on wood is extensive and rich as the style of that area included abundant gold backgrounds. I personally love the more primitive two-...More

This was an amazing experience for someone like me who enjoys art for its own sake and not because of a style or artist. We took forever to come to the end. The curators start you off on a particular staircase and you just follow...More

Most underrated museum I've ever been to. Off the beaten track, but sheer volume of 13-15th century paintings ('bizantian' style) is remarkable. Even Uffizi doesn't have this size of collection. Museum focuses on the gothic style, so relatively little renaissance paintings (for these Uffizi is...More

I am a Florentine Renaissance person, but seeing the great Sienese artists was a great treat. An empty museum but with some great art. A fun place to spend an hour.

Gorgeous collection of early Siennese art---don't miss it. Very quiet, at 5 euros a great value. Easy to find, near the Duomo.

This gallery was the absolute gem of Siena. Medieval paintings are arranged in chronological order making clear the changes in style over the years.
