We were greatly impressed by the cathedral and did not have high expectations of the museum. How wrong we were! The museum contains scores of original works, mainly marble statues, from the Duomo, with copies taking their places in the Duomo. The works are far more accessible than would be the case if they had been left in situ. The... More

I visited this wonderful museum in conjunction with an exhibition being held next door. What a great find. Fascinating and a great way to spend an hour with some really quite fabulous sculpture. Highly recommend..

This is in the Palazzo Reale, quite close to the Duomo. The exhibits are very good, particularly the stained glass. It does pay to have the audio guide. You can find the original or replacement statues on the Duomo itself afterwards. Recommended.

I would like to highlight that I'm reviewing the Duomo Museum and not the Duomo itself since a lot of the reviews on here appear to be for the Duomo even though there is a separate page for it. Museum was a huge disappointment. There was a very strange lack of context for many of the pieces, and an overall... More

Museums connected to churches can often be dusty, stuffy, pious and worthy. Not so this place. It gives a close up view of the magnificence of the Duomo, and in particular its sculpture. When you consider many of the wonderful pieces were hardly ever seen, given their place on the structure, the craft and detail is extraordinary.

We went here after our duomo cathedral tour. It was very informative and seen lots of pieces from the Duomo we never knew what they were. Had we wore the audio ear piece we would have learned way more. But first challenge is keeping our 4 year old son quiet. Either way lots of figures or statues that you would... More

This museum was even better than seeing the Duomo itself. There are so many interesting exhibits of Christian Art and relics laid out in an easy to follow course through the museum. Very professionally done. We chose to buy this as a separate ticket instead of a combined tour and were not disappointed. Such a learning experience!

Visited the Duomo museum (next to the cathedral and Palazzo Reale) yesterday and we were positively surprised by how the exhibition had been arranged. A lot of artefacts and a clear itinerary for you to follow once inside. Some of the ecplanations were unfortunately in Italian only. Hint: if you buy the City sightseeing tour, you'll get a discount for... More

The Museo Duomo has been recently renovated and currently gives home to a very wide range of Christian relics from the very fist ones up until the 1970's. The way how they display every single masterpiece is absolutely professional. You can see detailed descriptions everywhere and the lights are just fabulous. So it is really worth visiting.
