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.

Entrance included in the price of the ticket to go into the Duomo the museum across the square is worth a visit. Plenty of interesting artifacts and information on the magnificent church.

Only do this if you some time to spare. Not a must see attraction. The duomo is better and the roof tops.

The highlight was being able to get a lift to the roof and walk around it. Brings you so close to the amazing amount of work that has been put into it's construction and decoration.

I did not want to do this, but the ticket covered the entrance fees. What a great place. Full of statues, descriptions, gargoyles. Visit. Good toilets too.

Milan is the fashion place of Italy along with its architecture. I thoroughly enjoyed walking the Galleria and discovering the magnificent Duomo at the end!

This was a great quick visit before we went into the Duomo itself. For history lovers, this is a nice added value to the actual cathedral with replicas and actual pieces of the cathedral!

This is one of the best museum I have visit. Not only because of the amazing art but for me the most impressive quality was how they illuminate the art work - you cannot take a bad picture! I also really like the setup since they have it set in such way that you cannot miss any of the art... More

Make sure you purchase the audio guide if you actually want to learn something. Otherwise a lot of statues, some of which are labelled. Worth it for the enthusiastic tourist. Price of entry is included in the €2 cathedral ticket.

I have never been surrounded by so many birds. Hold some food and they will land on you. Watch out for the guys who throw food near you feet and then expect euros for the privilege. Just tell them no.

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.
