Bergamo -- specific current hours/days questions for some attractions

Got a couple questions about attractions in Bergamo.

1. it looks like the museum at the Accademia Carrara is currently closed. However, some of the paintings from that museum appear to temporarily be at the Palazzo della Ragione until June 24, 2012. I haven't been able to find out what hours the Palazzo is open to see these paintings, though. Does anyone have that current information, days of the week and hours?

2. I'm seeing conflicting information on whether the Cappella Colleoni is open on Mondays during June/July/August or not. Several websites suggest that it is, but I found a couple that suggest not. I couldn't find an official website for this attraction. Does anyone know for certain?

3. the Museo Donizettiano (not the house) also does not seem to have a website. Frommer's says it's open daily, including Mondays, from June to September, but I've seen suggestions that it's closed on Mondays year round elsewhere. Does anyone know for certain? And does anyone know if the 9:30-1:00 and 2:00-5:30 hours are accurate as listed at Frommer's?

Many thanks for your help.

1) I thought Palazzo della Ragione and Accademia Carrara were the same thing.

2) It seems to be open every day, but note closed hours in the middle of the day. http://turismo.provincia.bergamo.it/...olleoni-chapel

3) Museo Donizettiano would appear to be closed Mondays year-round. Link to the foundation that manages the Donizettiano and a few other museums in Bergamo:

Thanks Jean and kybourbon -- you're the best! Don't know how I missed these, but this answers the questions I had.
