Saw a wonderful exhibit of his American photographs taken in the 1950's and 1960's. Don't miss going downstairs to see the murals that were uncovered there.

Since its opening in 2009, the museum has been organising a great variety of first class contemporary art displays. I visited in February 2017 to see the exhibition ''WARHOL vs GARTEL. HYP POP”, marking 30 years since Andy Warhol's death.

We have visit this museum every time we visit Lucca. There is always a well curated modern art show, often photography. Most recent show featured and excellent selection of Robert Doisneau's work, with detailed and informative curatorial notes.
