An absolutely remarkable collection of Sienese paintings and other works of art await you at this interesting museum. The Pinacoteco Nazionale houses beautiful artworks from the medieval and renaissance period. It is located in the 14th Century Palazzo Buonsignori which is a gorgeous building by itself. A must visit for art enthusiasts, this museum, although a little chaotically organized, is a true gem.

Pinacoteca Nazionale Reviews & Ratings
Museum consists of two parts: the second floor with old (12th - 14th century) paintings on wood (like crosses found above altars in churches), and on the first floor normal paintings from the 15th to 17th century. However there is a reoccuring theme in the whole collection, namely Madonna with child. The museum consists of about 37 rooms which take less than 2 hours. All in all I would recommend this museum because it is not too big and has a beautiful and rare collection.
The Pinacoteca is a gem for researchers and lovers of Italian renaissance art. Placed near the major attractions of the Piazza del Campo and the beautiful and unique Duomo. It has a unique collection of the Sienese school of painting- from Duccio and Simone Martini to major figures of the high renaissance as the excentric Sodoma to 2 exceptional paintings by Beccafumi. Not frequented by the wider public you can find yourselves enjoying the quiet and cool atmosphere on a hot day.
Great sights and enchanting place
If you're looking for a quiet, uncrowded, museum experience, I would highly recommend. They've got early religious works from Baroque to Enlightenment. All work is native to Siena.
Nice, empty gallery with mostly religious art. Well worth a visit for the modest entry price.
