“WOW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This is a must see after visiting the Duomo. It is located across the street from the back of the Cathedral. We were in awe of the beauty of the many pieces in the museum. The original Baptistry bronze door by Ghilberti is on display along with a video or it's restoration and relocation in the museum. It defininely is worth seeing . . . such a piece of beauty and history.

“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

In order to view the Ghiberti Gates of Paradise, you must go to the museum. They are definitely worth the visit. Truly incredible.

“A must to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Please research before visiting as thee is so much to see, from early Roman statues to paintings y Van Dyke. plan to give yourself 3 hours, as when you think you have come to te end of th exhibits, around the corner isanother wing and at least 5 shops as you exit (which was strange).

“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.
