Welcome to the Museum of the Cathedral, a symbol of Milan all over the world. The Museum's 26 exhibition rooms house the works of art originally from both the Duomo and from the historic storerooms of Veneranda Fabbrica, now organised chronologically to illustrate all the construction stages of the Cathedral, from its foundation in 1386 right through to the 20th century.

This museum is across the street from the Duomo. It presents many originals, copies, and studies for the statues of the Duomo, many of which you cannot see up close or appreciate the detail. It winds farther than you think and then you must retrace your steps, so go to the end. Its a good one hour visit, more if... More

The museum was a welcome break from the afternoon sun. It was full of interesting bits and bobs with English explanations as well as Italian ones. There was only one route round so people couldn't avoid whole rooms or sections (there were A LOT of statues). We thought it was fab, but probably not suitable for young children or those... More

We only went here because it was included in our combo Duomo ticket. There were some interesting pieces and one really pretty stained glass window room. The staff was not very welcoming. They followed us around and were constantly glaring. I wouldn't want to go back for that reason. This place allows for photography without flash. No videos.

Duomo Museum has really impressive collection of sculptures, paintings and other items connnected with the history of Duomo. Unfortunately, I cannot really tell much about the treasures of the place as the pieces of information given to the tourists consist exclusively of the name of author, title of the work, approximate age of the exhibit and the material it was...

We bought the tickets at Duomo entrance directly. No queue! From the terraces you can get an amazing view of Milan.

Excellent museum. You need to buy another ticket for the Leonardo da Vinci collection at Palazo Reale. It was fascinating. There are about 26 rooms with various collections from Leonardo's works - painting, sculptures, studies on human anatomy, studies on muscles, studies on light, studies on science, studies on automobiles and aircrafts, etc. Really fascinating

My entrance into the museum was part of my Duomo ticket so I took sometime and went through. Boy am I glad I did. You begin and end with a scale model of the Duomo in wood and can really see the detail plan for the structure. The rest of the museum are actual pieces removed from the Duomo and... More

When we got in we did not expect the richness of the collection. There were tapestries, numerous carved and sculptured figurines in wood, gold and marble..and there is a wooden replica of the Milan Duomo. Get the ticket that includes the Duomo and the Museum. Its worth it for me.

We booked a guided tour with Visitalia Tourist Card on before coming. 20€ each with terrace entrance fee included..Discounts for children. The view is spectacular !!! For the oldest we suggest to take the lift instead of the stairs..the cost for the lift is 13€. the cost of ticket by stairs is 7€, A landmark in Milan! Don't miss it... More

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
