Palazzo Blu is a center for temporary exhibitions and cultural activities located in 9 Lungarno Gambacorti, in the heart of the historic center of Pisa, Italy. This museum is managed by the Fondazione Palazzo Blu (a foundation funded by Fondazione Pisa), and is located in the Palazzo Giuli Rosselmini Gualandi (and Palazzo Casarosa), ancient palace restored by the Fondazione Pisa. Its name comes from the blue color uncovered during an architectural recent restoration, and attributable to the taste of Russian owners who acquired the Palazzo in the eighteenth century.

The Escher exhibit (temporary, currently on now) is phenomenal, a must-see for any fan. Admission is about 12 euros, includes a good audio guide. A really good break from the endless procession of Middle Ages and Renaissance paintings as well. The permanent exhibitions are far less unique, but only an euro more and still solid for what they are-- beautifully furnished building, with a range of paintings from different periods. I particularly enjoyed the room of post-Macchiaioli artwork. I love learning the local history and there was an interesting-looking exhibit about the student movement in the 60s as well, but it was unfortunately in Italian only.
One of the most important centers of cultural life in Pisa. It offers wonderful exhibitions and great lectures by renowned speakers.
Great exhibitions. Gorgeous Palace. Highly recommend.
It's a small but well organised museum along the river Arno, interesting and highly recommended!
Amazing artwork, the history of more then seven centuries shown in an amazing exhibition. I recommend it for anyone who enjoys a little bit of culture.
The emotion of a speech of the great photographer Yamashita. Secrets and stories behind images
Really interesting museums with a nice informative coin collection. Good temporary exhibitions as well
Interesting place showing a great variety of art. The temporary exhibitions give this place some charm and seem to change quite often. The entrance fee is really low (reduction for students). The place is bigger than expected at first and guides are offered in various languages in each rooms of the palace !
