Original "Doors of Paradise"; Donatello's Mary Magdalene - you can feel the emotional anguish Donatello wanted you to experience, this is an unsung highlight of Florence. You're going to see the Duomo, you owe it to yourself to go here as well.

This is where the real treasures of the Duomo are - for instance the actual, famous, Baptistery doors are in the museum, while copies of the doors are outside on the Baptistery itself. Also wonderful statues (including the great Donatello wooden statue of Mary Magdalene)...More

First, we booked a stone workshop tour through the museum. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! This bypasses the lines at the Baptistery as well as the Duomo. In addition, we had the opportunity to visit the masons shop where restoration work is being done. All this with a...More

The ticket to enter is 18 euro but you can also visit the Giotto tower and the dome of the Cathedral with this ticket. Only for the dome you have to book a timeslot. Buy tickets early, 1 or 2 days beforehand because they are...More

We decided to visit the Duomo Museo rather than wait in the ridiculously long line to get into the church itself (I had seen it before anyway), and were SO glad we did. So much interesting history about the construction, the art, the creators, various...More

This was a wonderful museum and we were amazed by the works here in addition to the models here of the Duomo. This is a spectacular museum and you should most definitely add this to your "Must See" list.

The original doors of the Baptistry(original Gates of Paradise) are in the museum. The exhibit that explains how the dome was built was interesting with models and a 5 min film that alternates between English and Italian. It was quite a feat at the time!

I enjoyed this museum best of all the sites. It is a must see. Didn't know of it before we arrived in Florence. It was included in the Duomo package.

Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.

of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

We spent 2 hours here and loved it. You could do it in an hour if you just want the Readers Digest version.
