Asia G. (Perugia)

The museum provides a rich and interesting path to explore Marche and Umbria’s medieval painting and sculpture. Here one can find altar pieces as well as sculptures of remarkable quality and historical value. When coming to Fabriano, paying a visit to the Diocesan Museum, the Molajoli Art Gallery and the Paper Museum is definitely a must

PA1TW (Milan)

A tiny museum with few yet very interesting and well-exhibited and illuminated pieces featuring easy-to-read captions. Excellent organization and beautiful paintings made by the Fabriano guys that are exhibited next to the main artworks. If you have time to visit just one Art Museum in the city, I would recommend you to visit this one.

Claudio B. (Fabriano)

A very interesting and exhaustive collection of works sorted by historical periods. The staff is highly educated and able to provide information flawlessly.

Pecci2017 (Milan)

A tiny gem, a small yet well-stocked museum; ideal to grasp a quick knowledge of Fabriano’s Christian tradition.

Alessandra Biondi (Ferrara)

The historical itinerary of Fabriano’s church museum dates back to the 10-11th century and extends until 1785, when it converted into Diocese together with the town of Matelica. The exhibition areas feature several art works: paintings, sculptures, prints, cabinet-making works, holy pots, furnishings, reliquaries and liturgical hangings coming from the local churches. The exhibition begins with ancient sculpture, Agnus Dei, VII-VIII centuries (stone sculpture – Albacina Church) and after a score of paintings and sculptures the exhibition ends with a huge display showing: Vestments, Chasubles/Copes, Calyx, Monstrances, Reliquaries, Chandeliers, a beautiful path.

Pleasant and truly beautiful! If you get to the Cathedral and you are lucky enough to meet Mr. Giorgio, he will surely take you to visit both the Cathedral and the Diocesan Museum. You will have a chance to marvel at panels, paintings and more which will make you feel delighted.


A real must! I see things I had to share with my travel buddies. The staff was extremely kind.

Few rooms to visit yet with several areas of interest including a parchment dating back to 1003 and a wooden statue of San Giacomo Apostolo. Free entry

Eufrosine Aglaia

A small yet well-kept museum. Worth a mention is the staff: kind and professional. Recommended.
