The Diocesan Museum of Sacred Art of San Miniato was one of the first diocesan museums in Italy. Located in Piazza del Duomo, it shows evidence of the former presence of the German Emperors in the city. The exhibition centre is located in the premises that previously housed the sacristies of the church of Santa Maria Assunta and San Genesio. The latter is now the cathedral, which, as far as we know, dates back to 700 AD and which only took on its present appearance in the 20th century when San Miniato was in the orbit of Frederick II.
The five rooms which comprise the building hold around fifty works of art which come from several parishes in the Diocese. These are arranged chronologically from the 13th until approximately the 19th centuries.
