Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Tuscany / Province of Siena / Siena / Complesso Museale Santa Maria della Scala
Admire the artwork in Complesso Museale Santa Maria della Scala, a former 13th-century hospice-turned-cultural-and-art center. At one time the site mainly drew pilgrims to its doors, but today people flock here for the archeological museum, children's art museum, and contemporary art center, as well as the variety of historical halls and chapels. Kids will enjoy the mysterious atmosphere of the archeological section in the basement, displayed along ancient tunnels. For a real visual treat, head upstairs and find the 15th-century frescoes created by Lorenzo Vecchietta, Priamo della Quercia, and Domenico di Bartolo.

Complesso Museale Santa Maria della Scala reviews
Highly recommend this museum if you’re in Siena. Only thing I have to say about the museum is about the bathrooms.. embarrassingly in bad conditions, broken and dirty. more »
the whole complex of Santa Maria della Scala is impressive, from the outside as from the inside. and it has a lot of interesting objects, paintings etc. but it is quite confusing and badly organized..... more »
An extremely interesting museum. We spent the best part of three hours in here, there was so much to see! The entry price was reasonable at 9 euros, and included an audio guide!
A beautiful and deeply touching link with St Caterina of Siena as she used to care for the suffering and ill there. Downstairs is the chapel where she prayed and the place she would sleep when working there through the night. Much else also worth seeing. Staff helpful.
