This museum has medieval artifacts of all kinds: sculpture, books, arms, small curiosities and devotional objects. There are room guides in Italian and English. If you like medieval art, this museum is a good use of your time.

We have visited Bologna many times and have often visited the Palazzo Fava next door, but this was our first visit here. How we could have missed this gem of a museum before I do not know, but the quality of the displays and the...More
