During my two previous Florence visits (1998 and 2002) the museum was closed due to restauration. Now I finally could get into the museum and admire the exhaustive collection. The museum displays original masterworks that once adorned the duomo, battistero and campanile. Each part has...More

This was a great visit immediately after the main duomo dome walk/climb. The museum was very modern contrasting in a very positive way with the ancient subject matter. The exhibits extended from pre-Roman to the near-present and covered the history of the region and the...More

Loved this place and not very busy. Everyone told us to skip the visit to the Duomo and go to the museum itself. Air conditioned and lot less crowded. No lines! Everything that was in the church is now in the museum. Loved it!

The museum provides wonderful reconstructions of what the earlier cathedral facade looked like. If you buy Duomo tickets the museum is included in the price so don't miss it.

When I put this on my list of must-see museums in Florence, I was really only interested in Michaelangelo's Deposition and Ghiberti's baptistry doors. How wrong I was! Again. This is a brilliantly put together museum on several floors that houses an unbelievable assortment of...More

I saw several other museums in Florence but this one probably was my favorite. It has many of the original statutes from the Duomo and you will learn more history about the Duomo in this museum too.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

We spent 2 hours here and loved it. You could do it in an hour if you just want the Readers Digest version.
