We had some hesitation about visiting this museum, but we are all glad we did. The museum features outstanding paintings from Cortona's own artists from 14th Century to the 20th Century. Very doable in 60-90 minutes.

This small museum is impressive! Many outstanding Signorellis, and a lower level oratory that is breathtaking! You can take photos, it is not crowded, with many original pieces. Only 6euros and we’ll worth it! The views from the courtyard of The Valley are stunning, as is the Catedral de Santa Maria church. A Must See!

The two Fra Angelica,s here are wonderful and the best part of our visit was that we had them all to ourselves. That is a rare event in an Italian museum. There are several other fine pieces in the museum and the presentation is very good. Well worth a visit.

This small museum has some stunning works (like the Fra Angelico), beautifully presented in historic rooms. I would have given this museum 5 out of 5 except for their no photograph policy. This is sometimes because they want you to buy the catalogue or postcards, but the paintings I wanted details of were not included in any publication nor available on the museum website. In my experience of visiting the biggest and greatest art collections of the world, it seems only some of the smaller ones who have a no photograph policy.

When visitors have traveled several thousands of miles to see great paintings and then are not allow to take photographs feels to me pretty mean and out dated.

But this museum it is worth visiting as long as you don't want to remember what you saw in a few months time!

So many significant paintings in this smallish museum across from the duomo on a side street. Great views from the end of the street by it over the wall. Signorelli is well represented here.

This tiny museum on the Western edge of the old town is a must see. Do not be put off by the name it is NOT full of liturgical vestments and chalices. The paintings are superb.

The way of the cross in paintings lining the second staircase were very moving. The coffered ceiling was beautiful.

We enjoyed this small museum In Cortona with seven exhibition halls with many paintings of the Annunciation! There was no elevator for us so had to use stairs! The lower level is embellished with Cardboard representation of the cross. The museum is only partially assessable to disabled persons?
