The highlights (and what highlights!) are -- the North and East doors of the Baptistery by Ghiberti (removed for conservation and replaced by gaudy copies particularly the East doors) which are some of the most beautiful things I have ever seen; -- the Donatello marbles (particularly "St John the Evangelist"); -- the Danti bronzes ("The Beheading of St John the Baptist", note the fluidity and power of the executioner and the sublime concentration of the saint); -- the "Pieta Bandini" by Michelangelo no less (who is being restored under your very eyes), unfortunately unfinished but proof of what humankind can achieve. There is much, much more to see and admire and this museum deserves to be visited at leisure. The building has been magnificently restored and structured--congratulations to the architects and designers. Sadly enough it was almost empty when we were there.

A museum often overlooked by the basilica complex of which this museum holds artefacts for. Tickets are purchasable at 3 ticket locations surrounding the Duomo as well as the operaduomofirenze website. Tickets are timed entry (can stay as long as you want once inside, although everything can be comfortably viewed in 45 minutes to an hour) and include entry to the Baptistery of San Giovani at a price of €10. Artefacts include Michelangelo's Pieta Bandini, Brunelleschi's death mask, many of the statues that once donned the basilica's interior and exterior and The Gates of Paradise (original golden doors to the baptistery - very impressive!) The Museum also houses Renaissance artwork of the Duomo, attire worn by priests and construction tools used to build the basilica. Perhaps overall one of my favourite museums in Florence, definitely worth a visit!

Very much enjoyed our visit. Since the Opera was refurbished it sets a gold standard for visitor attractions in Florence. Sooooo enjoyed the display of the Baptistry doors! The authorities are to be commended also for their Covid-19 arrangements. The Opera is now near the top of must sees on a visit to Florence.

A very peculiar place to discover the centuries, the works, the artists behind such an architecture like Florence Duomo!

The Museo dell'Opera del Duomo houses a fine collection of art and artifact which over the years have been removed from the cathedral, bell tower and baptistery and allows for a more organized viewing by the public, as well as ensuring preservation and security. Unfortunately many tourists may bypass this museum (as I almost did) expecting it to simply be more of the same and of lesser significance. Happily, I invested the time to visit.
