Put off by the queues to the Duomo we visited this museum instead and found it a fascinating place in a superb purpose designed building.. We learned more about the history and how the Duomo was built than if we had visited the place itself....More

Wonderful museum that helps you understand the art of the Duomo better. The unfinished Michelangelo Pieta is sublime. That alone makes the entire visit worthwhile.

What an amazing museum. Loved all the models and recreations of the DUOMO. And the bapistery doors are so amazing. Found this to be a very well laid out museum. So many gems in this location. Definitely a must see....

On our second trip to Florence we discovered the massive crowds and oppressive heat so many had told us about. So happy we learned about the Museo Nazionale del Bargello. All of the original works from the Cathedral and Baptistry (including Ghiberti's Bronze Doors) have...More

It's funny to watch the hordes of tourists gawking at the Baptistry doors on the Piazza when all they're seeing are copies of the originals which can be viewed in air-conditioned comfort just a hundred yards away. This interpretive museum has a huge amount of...More

This was part of the combination cathedral/duomo ticket and I'm glad we went. All the original parts that were in the cathedral etc... are here in a modern but sympathetic setting as well as an impressive Michelangelo sculpture.

The museum displays the artifacts form the Duomo in a modern well lite space. The displays reveal details that would otherwise have been difficult to appreciate.

I really, reqlly enjoyed the museum. To see the original Gates of Paradise was so, so wonderful. I could stare there for hours. The different sculptures were also beautiful to look at. A place rich in history, and of course, art.

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
