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.

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

Entrance is included in the €2 entrance fee to the Duomo. The museum gives a sense of understanding a little of the history that lies behind the building of the Duomo that took more than 600 years. Sculptures, paintings, models and more add to the insight into what the Duomo really is. A 'Mission Impossible' that was accomplished.

Initially we were going to skip a visit to the museum but decided to go as it was included in the admission price for the Duomo. I'm so glad we decided to visit! Extensive, interesting and beautiful collection of statues, relics, tapestries, stained glass, etc. Well worth a visit!

This place is incredible. The pictures do not do it justice, although inside may be absolutely magnificent, it is still not as beautiful as the outside in my opinion. We had a walk through with a guide so it was a lot more interesting, so a guide is advised. The area around is buzzing with people no matter what time... More

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.

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.
