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.

Your ticket to the Duomo would allow you to enter the museum as well, which is in the building just across from it. It's pretty small but with a lot of items related to the Duomo.

After visiting the Duomo, one needs to visit the Duomo museum too, to get a glimpse of the quality of sculpture and architecture of the Renaissance period in Europe. The centre piece of the museum is the model of the Duomo, besides several sections which must have been worked upon before the final one was constructed. There are several sculptures... More

So we ended up going in otherwise it would have been a waste of the ticket. It certainly has some great pieces inside and you can get up close with them. Nice and dark and cool inside so it's a good place to head to during the heat of the midday (or after) sun

This museum was the least interesting musem I have ever visited, maybe because I am an atheist. There were sculptures paintings of and a lot of Saints. At least, the entrance ticket was cheap (only 2 €). Ticket is valid for visit of Duomo and Duomo's museum.

We went to the museum to escape the heat of summer -- totally worth the visit. It wasn't crowded and there were great exhibits. Really enjoyed the wood model of the Duomo which still serves as a guide to the restorers today! The craftsmanship of the statues is superb.

The church is beautifully done inside and out and on top. I really recommend waiting in line and going to the roof too. It is very beautiful and I have seen some to compare it with. I am glad we left it for our last day, because nothing can impress me more than this now. :) A must see!

We only visited this as it was part of the ticket price we paid to go into the main Duomo. With an interesting layout, it contains a lot of statues from the Duomo but the most striking is probably the gold goblets and crosses near the beginning. Is worth a look and good value when you consider you can also... More

Simply put, they don't build them like this anymore. The interior is as magnificent as the building's exterior. We avoided the horribly long lines by getting advanced purchase tickets.Even if you're not a believer, it's worth a visit.

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.
