“Has Ghiberti's original doors”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Small museum, easy to get around. Has a Michelangelo pieta (but not the very famous one: that's in the Vatican). And Ghiberti's original doors.

It wouldn't be in my top tier of items to visit.

“A must-see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

The original Gates of Heaven are alone worth the visit. Also found the exhibit of tools used in building the Duomo interesting, as were models used to aid in construction. Lots of beautiful sculpture.

“Gates to heaven are here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

This is where you have to come to see Ghiberti's the Gates of Paradise (restored) as Michelangelo appropriately called it. A must see! You can also see Michelangelo's The Deposition (a.k.a., Florentine Pieta) and ponder what motivated him to try and destroy his own work destined to decorate his own tomb.

“More Priceless Art Displays”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

It is hard to know where to look in Florence as there are so many beautiful collections of both paintings and artwork. Therefore we pretty much went to see as much as we could in the time we had in Florence. Florence is a walking city so it is fairly easy to do a lot! This Museum is located just across the street from the Duomo. It does have some wonderful things to see including Michelangelo's Pieta. This is not however his only work of the Pieta. Even so, this is work at look.
