Visit to the Tartuca Contrada Museum
Just a few doors down the street from the Siena Art Institute, this recently-remodeled museum is filled with the history of this neighborhood.
We visited the museum with our current group of students who are at the Siena Art Institute for an intensive winter course, part of the First Year Scholars program of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
