Visit Galleria Estense. Jan 22, 2018
Palazzo dei Musei is a very large palace which its original destination would be to become a hostel for the poors. Ercole II decided to turn it into a place for arts in 1788. This was meant as a school where young people would be educated to learn various crafts.

This palace houses several museums. Some of them are closed in the afternoon. One of them that is open until late in the evening is the Galleria Estense. This is an art collection belonged to the Este family. It is made of lots of paintings, some statues and other beautiful masterpieces. I liked very much this museum.

Besides this museum, inside this palace there is a museum of Medieval and modern art, an archaeological and ethnological museum, a lapidarium and the Estense library.
