The Museum of Art of Chianciano hosts a series of collections ranging from Neolithic and Asiatic to Contemporary art. There are approximately a thousand works on display. You will view paintings and sculptures by artists such as Tom Nash, Francis Turner, Mario Schifano, Damien Hirst, Brian Willsher and Albert Louden, drawings by the likes of Magritte, Guttuso and Munch, historical works from Royal Collections or original etchings by masters such as Durer and Rembrandt.

The Museum offers an intense artistic experience, where one moves from rooms which throw the visitor into the 16th century, to rooms from the future.

The Art Museum of Chianciano Terme has a vast collection of contemporary and modern art. Many of the artists' works can be seen in some of the most prestigious museums in the world such as the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Museum of Modern Art Rio De Janeiro, the National Museum of Wales, the Tate Britian and many others.

International Events: Every year, the Museum organises an exhibition of international importance. The Biennale of Chianciano will be staged in 2011 and the Chianciano International Award for Digital and Photographic Art will be organised in 2012. These two events will bring the best talents in the world to Chianciano.

The Museum is ideally situated and easily reachable, being close to Siena, Perugia, Florence and Rome. Convenient nearby airports are Roma Fiumicino, Ciampino, and Florence. It is reachable by train (station: Chiusi-Chianciano Terme) and is in the centre of Chianciano Terme.
