  • This museum has been totally upgraded and re-staged over the last several years. The display of art work is far more coherent, and the far easier to appreciate than the former, somewhat hodge-podge....  more

  • The original Baptistry doors alone make this work the time to see. A incredible collection, well organized and documented.

  • This is a wonderful space created to house many of the original sculptures from the church of Santa Maria. Large vast halls to showcase the works that were on the facade greet you as you enter. After you pass through a number of rooms showing the development of the church. Lovely spot.
  • Detailed and full of life. Beautifully organized. Not too much wait, the lines moved fast. Extensive (as expected, given the size of the Duomo). If you go, don't miss the movie they pass on the construction of the ceiling, first floor (it continuously plays in Italian first, then in English.)
