Took the train from Rome so after a bit of an orientation challenge when our google map would not update on the phone. Received an email reminder with good instructions for how to redeem voucher and easy link to open the voucher in the app. While the outside of the building is not that impressive- the inside, collection and audio guide are excellent- absolutely amazing collection of sculpture- the paintings were from an amazing selection of masters but were mostly of a similar theme- had not gone in on our visit in 2001, but so happy we took the tour this year! If you love art and sculpture- you will enjoy your visit- you need at least 4-5 hours

This was a great excursion! Given the time we had, we were as able to site see on our own and have a nice lunch! The guide was friendly and helpful with precise information on how to get to the points of interest, and even gave us phone # should we need it. It was nice to visit Pisa. Bus ride was comfortable

All sort is Renaissance art that one would expect. Amazing to see it all. Easy to find your way around and lovely views too from the upper floors. Great value and the staff are all very helpful.

This museum is truly a gem of western civilization and not to be missed. Our guide was phenomenal. Shout out to Sylvia!! She did a great job educating us as well as entertaining us !
