It is located in the San Domenico convent, which was built from 1283 to 1316. The convent, which has a beautiful Renaissance cloister (1478-1480), passed to the Franciscan Order in 1783. The museum was established to protect the damaged sinopites and frescoes that could not be returned to their original locations. It also conserves sacred furnishings from the San Domenico convent.
Among the noteworthy artworks are frescoes by Paolo Uccello, in the chapel of the Assunta in the cathedral (15th century); the sinopites of the Figline tabernacle by Agnolo Gaddi (1393-1395); the Ceppo tabernacle by Nicolò Gerini, (1391); a fresco of Christ with Angels by Baldassare Franceschini, known as il Volterrano (1650); and a relief by Giovanni d'Agostino (14th century).
