I've been to Museo di Santa Giula three times. It is literally multi layers. The bottom layer consists of excavations of Roman houses showing their floor plans, and some frescos. The second layer is archaeolgical excavtions of early church foundations. The Third layer is the museum itself which is devoted to artifacts found around Brescia from pre-history through the Roman...

The Museum is amazing and it includes an incredible in loco view of ruins of houses of Ancient Rome. The museum was empty. You can buy a ticket to visit the museum and the capitolium, which is also intersting, but you can only access a small room and not the whole thing.

Wonderful museum in extensive collection of Medieval and Renaissance art, also significant Roman ruins, including impressive mosaics. This site is quite underrated and worth the visit, if staying in Milan for a few days.

The museum is amazing for the quantity and quality of the pieces exposed, for the ease of visit and for the churches included in the visit. Very nice the exhibit of Roman villas. Every piece in labeled also in English.

this is an important museum to visit. the buildings themselves are all historic from various ages. Part of a roman city is completely enclosed and excavated within a wing of this museum. some amazing treasures. Many items in excellent condition

A large collection, good location but very bad presentation. Enjoyable if you are a history buff or an art expert but long and boring for the average visitor. "Here is the stuff we found under the building".

We bought tickets combined with the Roman Temple. The museum is a monastic complex and the rooms themselves exhibits in their own right. Starting with the Santa Maria in Solario with its blue ceiling and golden stars and its treasures, you follow a strict plan to trace Brescias' history through various buildings in the complex. I'm not even joking, this... More

Visited this museum complex in the height of the mid-June tourist season (with a combined Capitolium-Santa Giulia ticket, very good value) and yet the museum was practically empty, much to our surprise. The ex-monastery is the size of multiple museums, and spans much of the region's history and prehistory, from stone age artefacts to modern-day works. Following the maps, you... More

In some Italian cities this place would be crowded but here you can see some real treasures in quiet surroundings. The museum is a real complex with many sections and a rather confusing layout. It's worth the effort, shame though no cafe I could have done with a sit down and a coffee.

This museum is made on a 12 century monastery and describes the its history. Also, this is the history museum of the city of Brescia. It is very big, full of history! You will need at least 3 hours to visit it.
