Lots and lots of beautiful religious art. The crypt contains relics from the construction of the Duomo. Entry is part of the 10 Euro combined ticket with several other museums on the piazza.

The museum, which like many other in Italy relates to the local cathedral has a great collection. Inside were several Gothic altars, paintings, objects, and artifacts particularly interesting the altarpiece by Martini and the terracottas by Della Robbia.

Beautiful frescoes and masterpiece works of art follow the story of the city and the cathedral. So many gorgeous paintings and sculptures and even mosaics to see. They even have a nice little bookstore and information center.
