I have visited this museum many times over thirty years. It was quiet. Musty. No English and barely advertised. Now it is a modern three floor space with so much to see and fine explanations. Very impressive and professionally presented. Can combine with the cathedral...More

This is a small, really wonderful museum. It was under doing a complete renovation when we were here in 2012 and I really missed seeing the Gates of Paradise and that is one of the reasons we returned to Florence this year. The original Gates...More

The museum was nice and it came along with the main ticket so it was a good addition. The sculptures were beautiful.

Mainly about the building of the duomo, its architects, plus a smattering of religious artwork of arguable significance. Good value for those with historical inclination as the ticket offers 6x locations.

The Duomo and Museum are part of a combined ticket. You get access to the chapels behind the main altar in the Duomo and the museum which is adjacent and under the cathedral. The museum has many pre-renaissance pieces and well as the original Donatello...More

All the reviews are absolutely right...this is a great place to start your tour of Florence. An almost overwhelming display of beauty at every turn. .....Michaelangelo's Pieta intended for his own tomb but damaged by the artist is as moving as David.

It's wonderful that the one ticket gets you to the Museum, Giotto's Bell Tower, the Baptistery, Brunnelleshi's Dome, and the Cathedral--but we didn't have enough time to do it all. We didn't realize that on New Year's Eve everything closes at 3pm. So we spent...More

We visited this renovated museum days after it reopened and marvelled at the most incredible collection of works of art on 3 floors. For a €15 ticket you can enjoy Giotto's Bell Tower, the Baptistery of San Giovanni, Brunelleschi's Dome, the Crypt of Santa Reparata...More

After two years of closure for remodeling, the Museo dell'Opera dell Duomo reopened in late October 2015. Having been many times in the old museo, we were stunned at how brilliantly the remodeling has been done. All of the rooms are new, the sculptures are...More
