Having gone here after being in the Ufizzi and Academia in Florence, I was a bit underwhelmed. I don't do a lot of reading on the explanations on the works so I might have missed something here however I do feel that this is a place I could have skipped if I had known. The tickets are sold at a... More

Another great stop while visiting the Square of Miracles, which is also home to the Leaning Tower and Duomo. Originally the seminary, it was re-tasked as a museum displaying the development of medieval sculptures and religious paintings. Part of the combo ticket and well worth the time to visit. It wasn't busy when we went through.

It is always a pity when you like to visit a museum (such as the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo) and it is closed. At least it was mentioned on their site, so that the disappointment was not too big. I hope that you will be luckier when you visit Pisa.

Have been before, but would have again as it was part of a block ticket., Unfortunately it is closed until well into 2015. Not sure why.. Best check the website.

I like Museo dell' Opera del Duomo very much because of its art work and all the great paintings. Best place to take pictures. The great religious history as well as the sculptures and architecture of the cathedral.

I visited Pisa on a day trip while staying in Florence, which may help to explain why my rating is lower than most here. The museum does have some interesting frescoes and sculptures. It gives some, but not very much, information about the area. Worth a visit with the combined ticket but not really worth making any effort.

One must make a day of the Duomo. There's the Battisteria (Baptistry), of course with doors by Pisano and Ghiberti. Everyone in Florence had to take their baby to be baptised there. See the church and make certain to see the interior as well for the art, including stained glass windows from the best of the best, and to gaze... More

To fully appreciate the leaning tower and stunning Duomo you really have to visit this museum which is packed full of artefacts and information about the religious area's history as well as that of Pisa and it's artist's. Much of the actual original art, sculptures and architecture of the cathedral, tower and baptistery can be found in this old converted... More

This is one of the four buildings you can visit on your nine Euro ticket. I found the information in here fascinating and I would recommend that this is the first building you visit as it gives you info. That will enhance the other visits. I have visited many galleries recently so I am sometimes a bit jaded, so I... More

As a museum it is as good as any of the other specialty museums you visit. You will always learn something if you give it a chance. The best part of this museum is the courtyard inside the walls that is adjacent to the Leaning Tower. It is the best place for pictures of the Tower and really shows you... More
