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.

Once you've got past the queues and crowds at the entrance (and boy, they can be long!) you enter a huge gorgeous cavern of a cathedral that takes the breath away. I have compared it to Como Cathedral, which is more beautiful in my opinion, but the sheer scale of Milan's Duomo makes one stop in wonder. The restoration outside... More

It's near the Duomo you can use the Duomo ticket to get in (already included in the Duomo ticket, no need for extra charge). You can see the history of the Duomo and see the sculptures really close. If you have time after the visit of Duomo and the roof I recommend you to go take a little time to... More

We added this to our Duomo experience -- first the cathedral and then the museum -- and found it to be a nice complement. Although the endless string of statues grew a bit monotonous, it was quite powerful to view so many of them, in so many styles, up close. The visit was well worth it overall.

If you haven't seen large catholic cathedrals, hold on to your hats!! This structure is breathtaking and the attention to detail is like no other. I have been here twice and it was just as jaw dropping the second time around. This is a must see in Milan and there are a lot of shops in the area to keep... More

We bought a joint ticket for the Duomo and this museum, as well as the trip to the roof of the Duomo by lift. Excellent value. Some of the artefacts from the Duomo collected over the years are really interesting and this was well worth a visit. You get to cool down as well!

It is an example of an excellent architect...if you minutely watch out for the finish, each and every part of the structure has, you will understand the hardwork, the workers have put in to it. it is an huge structure..

After going into the duomo and onto the duomo rooftops, we went into the museum. It contained a lot of beautiful statues, but all the signs were only in Italian so without a little english guide we didn't understand a thing. The wooden maquette of the duomo is very impressive and really worth to take a look at though!

It was the best €4 each we have paid. We had an excellent English speaking guide who took us around the Duomo Museum. The guided tours aren't on every day, but make sure you take one if possible as it adds enormously to the museum. Also, it's much quicker to purchase tickets for the Duomo visit at the museum rather... More

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
