This is an artistic and cultural museum in the old part of the city in the province of Sienna. The museum was publicly opened in February, 2010. It was originally a part of an old church and was located in the middle of the city. The present location was chosen later in 2013.

  • There were mainly 10 galleries in the museum out of which there were models that represent the middle ages, life in the past, occupations that were prevalent during the early days of people in this city and other ceramic models of old buildings and monuments.
  • Notable exhibits are the works of Michelangelo and RaffaeloRubino, paintings by Enrico Guerrini and the models of cattle and animals.
  • There are other galleries also apart from these.
  • Since the relocation of the museum, it has faced many damages and also has been projected to heat and rain due to which it has lost much of its charm. Works are however on for its renovation.

  • Excellent monument of medieval culture and architecture. From that tower you are going to get stunning views at San Gimignano.

  • Pleasantly surprised to find free entry to view the miniature clay replica of the town - well worth stopping in

  • Small city that can be explored in a day. It is very well preserved and is just beautiful. It is a must visit

  • Loved this place. Must go up to the top of the tower and enjoy the view of this town and surrounding

  • Fascinating and intricately constructed scale model of San Gimignano in the Middle Ages. The craftsmanship is phenomenal. Shows San Gimignano as it was when all of its towers were still standing. A must see.
