A very well organized exhibition of Palladio's buildings with commentaries in English and Italian. Some of the rooms have spectacular ceilings and carvings.

This gives a rare chance to enter part of an urban palazzo designed by Palladio. There's a good bookstore with books on Vicenza and Palladio but we didn't pay to go in and see the models and other artifacts.

We went last night during Vicenza's "night of the museums" where the entrance fee was just €1. It was a nicely laid out abs informative museum. Beautiful building. Close to the basilica.
