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.

My visit to Duomo Museum was a part of my visit to Duomo Cathedral since my ticket included an entrance to Duomo Museum. This is a very nice Museum with some beautiful exhibits in its collection. Definitely worth a visit.

Don't miss the little museum and especially don't miss the archaeological area where the early baptistery was located. That is one of my favorite sites! Dating from the 4th century, St. Ambrose likely baptized St. Augustine in that space. You will also see excavations of earlier churches, roads, and graves. I wasn't expecting to be so interested in the baptistery... More

I have never seen anything which could be compared to the impressive and beautiful Duomo di Milano, both inside and outside. The way up by stairs was quite an ordeal in a way but in the end, I didn't regret that we hadn't taken the elevator - it was the right challenge. We were lucky to be there on a... More

Went earlier this year and had pretty big expectations of the Duomo…. it's really impressive and superseded what I imagined! Entered via the gallery and upon exiting, we were taken back by the beauty and size of the Duomo. Be sure to cover up before you enter the Duomo, and if you have time try to do the tour of... More

It is breathtaking, when you first see the cathedral making your way out of Duomo metro station. It is huge, and so much detailed that it impresses straight away. Plan your visit inside, because it is even more stunning there. That is why pay attention to your clothing (especially ladies). You are not allowed in shorts (guys as well), mini... More

Beautiful Gothic looking cathedral......... In the middle of some cleaning work, so you can see the cleaned white statues compared to older greyer ones. Massive building. free entry. Stairs may make it difficult for some people. Amaaaaaazing stained glass work. Stunning caved figures throughout. You can light candles (for a suggested but not monitored) fee for departed ones .
