  • The atmosphere and lighting of the works are incredible. A beautiful place! It takes more pleasure to walk around than to admire the works. The codex, for example, is closed and under glass partition. Nice place but too expensive for a simple uninitiated trick.

  • Loved this place. One of my favorite museums. I really like how they have the lights dimmed and then put little spot lights on the pieces. I think this really brings the works to life. Also to see Raphael's cartoon put together is worth the price of admission alone. The leonardo codices are very interesting as well.
  • Great museum and art gallery. Nice display of various classical artists paintings and other works of art. Excellent audioguides (only 3 euros). Air conditioning. Nice bookstore with selection of English titles. No cafeteria. Recommended.
