The Museum of St. Francis is situated in the historic centre, near the ancient St. Francis gateway. The location itself is worth a visit, as it features a beautiful 15th-century cloister built by the Comacini masters.

The museum is divided into two sections: one dedicated to sacred art and the other serving as a picture gallery. It houses a diverse collection of paintings on canvas and wood, as well as furniture and furnishings originating from numerous Franciscan churches. These objects offer insights into the presence of the religious community in the Old Republic and the significant role they played in its history. Additionally, the museum features sculptural and pictorial works by the 20th-century artist Emilio Ambron, completing the collection.
