The Museum, Baptistry, Crypt and the walk up to the top is a combined ticket you can purchase from the Tourist Center. For visitors, especially history buffs this is a tour worth taking. Climbing up the steps to take in the view is your reward.

Not impressed with this place at all, just full of religious items that all look the same, not sure why they name it Opera as there is nothing in there about opera.

This museum has some beautiful sculptures and paintings. The roof terrace gives great views of the city. What makes this museum a little unique is a great collection of ornate reliquaries - many with very visible skulls and bones. Also a very pretty gold tree...More

The museum has several rooms on different themes packed with art treasures connected with the Cathedral. Entrance costs €7, but I used the all-inclusive €13 ticket which also includes the Cathedral, the amazing Biblioteca Piccolomini, the crypt and the baptistry.

If you have even a little interest in historical things, you will find something here of interest. I especially liked the ancient artifacts displayed.

This site was part of a package of sites that I paid to visit, while in Siena. Once you get to the heart of Siena, you will need to pay to visit every site. It was worth a visit.
