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.
The Museo dell'Opera del Duomo is a true gem of a museum, housing many of the treasures of the Duomo and providing the visitor with an interesting insight into the design and construction of the Duomo over more than a 700 year period. Some of...More
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

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!
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity 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
as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
