The National Museum of the Royal Palace is situated on the Lungarno Pacinotti, in a sixteenth century palace designed by Buontalenti that was for centuries the court and residence of the royal houses of the Medici, Lorraine and Savoy. The building was renovated in 2001, recovering areas and links with the adjacent buildings that made up the complex of the grand ducal court.
Designed as a museum of the court costumes and Pisa, the museum preserves the look of a patrician residence, with the furnishings and furniture of the XVII-XIX, and collects many examples of families who lived here: paintings, portraits, furniture, tapestries , armor. We mention in particular the wardrobe of the Medici tapestries, Flemish and Florentine manufacturing, and the ancient armor of the Game of Bridge dating from the XV and XVII. Worthy of note is the valuable section of the predella from the altarpiece of Saint Nicholas of Tolentino, painted by Raphael in 1500.
