Unfortunately much of the museum was closed due to conrstuction works. The paradise door (there is just a replica at the baptistery) is worth the visit and 6 months later I saw some of the things I saw there in an exhibition in my hometown. Awesome things there!

I went with friends on a school trip. It was really good and especially interesting. Nice location with shops and placed to eat near-by.

I love that 18 people gave this a poor review, and wish it was 400 because then I'd continue to have this jewel all to myself. While thousands, perhaps millions, of tourists gape at the baptistry doors of Ghiberti outside -- utter replicas -- the real ones, newly restored and as bright as the day they were made are here...

One ticket at the current price of 10 Euro gets you entrance into much of the museum complex including the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Brunelleschi's Dome, Giotto's Bell Tower, the Baptistry of San Giovanni, the Crypt of Santa Reparata and the Opera Museum. I felt I got my money's worth just visiting the Cathedral and the Bapistry. You... More

You must see this once in Florence. This is one of the top attractions of Florence besides the huge Statue of David. We went with a tour group. I would recommend it to those contemplating on visiting such attraction. The good thing is that it is free to get in. So much to learn from what you can see. Our... More

The Museum was closed for renovations but two pieces were available to see- the most important. First, The original bronze doors "Gates of Paradise" from the Baptistery designed by Ghiberti. Look close and you can see his portrait on the doors. Second, Michelangelo's Florence Pieta. The admission fee is covered by getting a general admission ticket that includes all the... More

This place was awesome! Make reservations ahead of time if you plan on climbing to the Duomo. IT is worth the climb the views are beautiful Inside the church is also beautiful very peaceful and down in the crypt although the muskiness might bother you the history behind it is a must see.

When my wife and I tried to visit the museum on May 26, we found it completely closed – with no indication of when it would reopen. In order to avoid the long lines, we had intended to enter Santa Maria del Fiore though the museum, as recommended by the travel guidebooks, and return to the museum after visiting the... More

Was really looking forward to seeing this museum, but it was closed. Although it is not fair to give a low rating to this highly praised museum -- which I assume is wonderful -- but I am doing so because the signs were so unclear and misleading that we wasted a lot of time wandering around thinking it was simply...
