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

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

Don't miss the new Museo dell-Opera dell Duomo. Florence should be proud of the new structure holding some of the great treasures of the Duomo. It is by far one of the most beautiful museums in Florence. The Uffizi should hire the company that redesigned...More
