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.

Stunning, unforgettable, breath-taking, glorious, amazing and beautiful, all at once. This is one of western civilisations treasures and you need a day to see and appreciate this church. Walk right around the building, slowly and study the carvings (min 1 hour), then join a queue and spend at least 2 hours in the fabulous interior (best between 11.00hrs and 16.00hrs... More

Admission to the museum was included in our entrance fee to the Duomo. I figured it would be a simple little museum with some historical information about the Duomo. I was wrong! The museum has a number of pieces of sculpture that have been replaced in the Duomo over the years, many of which one wouldn't be able to see... More

We found the museum interesting and worthy of a visit. While you visit only the museum, why not purchase the ticket that provides access to the other attractions in the Duomo? The museum is closed one day a week. Check before going.

Depending on your interest the place is well set up and worth a look. Buy the package tickets and do this with the Duomo.

There's a lot to see here and it's on your same ticket as the Duomo. In fact if there are long queues at the Duomo ticket office then here has the same tickets with less queuing. Now the museum is extensive so give yourself time to browse. It's a bargain.

Visiting the rooftop is the "thing" to do, but it"s not necessary. The inside of the Cathedral is amazing, and that's worth it.

The museum is quite interesting with lots of statues and models from the Duomo. But it does get boring after a little while.

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.
