The museum is located in the rooms connected to the Church of Santa Giulia. Construction began in 1602 following the project of Alessandro Pieroni. The painting gallery includes in its collection liturgical objects and documents which speak to the importance of the Knights of Saint Stephen in Livorno as well as the crown of the collection, the monumental reliquary of Saint Julia. Attributed to the silversmiths Leonardi and Pieralli, it was commissioned by Cosimo III de' Medici.
