I get the feeling this little museum is not at the top of the tourist trail which is a pity. We arrived and were provided with an informative and entertaining guide by a very enthusiastic and knowledgable curator. It provides a really interesting history of...More

You woud need to be interested in the Miedici dynasty to get caught up with the portraits, many of them copies of earlier oil-paintings. But some of the paintings collected by Pisans include some outstanding hangings, like the Rosso Fiorentino Rebecca at the Well or...More

This is not a very large palace as only a portion is open to the public. But it still contains an interesting collection of arts and statues. Worthwhile visiting.

Opening time to the Palazzo was 9-14.00 and I think there was at least one weekday where it was closed? We visited on Wednesday and paid the 5 euros which were well worth it. Situated on the north side of the river Arno, easily reached...More

We were the only visitors at the time. Maybe it's because it closes at 2pm. Once the doors were unlocked for us, we were free to wander as we liked. There's paintings, tapestry, furniture, statues, ceramics. Not much in the way of explanations in English,...More

I wouldn't put this museum at the top of my list of things to do in Pisa, but if you're in town for more than a day it's not a bad way to while away an hour or so. Lots of paintings so poorly lit...More
