A small museum near the Cathedral but well worth a visit to see paintings by Signorelli and the Annuciation by the Beato Angelico, with the beautiful angel with the red dress and blond hair

I don't mean to offend, but the luscious paintings of Baby Jesus with Popes or Cardinals is just wrong. The paintings at the museum are fantastic.

This is a lovely small museum. Great choice to spend some time away from the crowds in quiet reflection and enjoyment of beautiful art.

Do not miss this museum while in Cortona, I nearly did but glad I noticed it on my last day. The work of art is amazing Just looking at the Annunciation of Cortona is worth the entrance fee.

The museum is housed in what was the Church of Gesu. Most of the works come from that church and others from the major churches in Cortona and the area. Well known artists of the 15th to 17th century, well organized and notated.

Really top teer small museum, a must if you visit Cortona. Lorenzetti, Angelico, Vasari,& favorite son Signorelli. Masterpieces abound...laid out beautifully in what was the old church... if you like art of these periods, you'll love the Museo Diocesano. We did.

This is a little gem on the back side of the city. The entry is very unassuming but don't let that stop you. The entry fee is €5 and worth it. This is not a handicap accessible site. There are several flights of stairs. It...More

Not a large museum but it includes some very important and quite beautiful works of art by Beato Angelico, Luca Signorelli, and some exceptionally rare 13th-century paintings, including one of the earliest images of Santa Margherita from Cortona.
