This museum helps to put the history of Florence and the area into perspective. While not large, it has some terrific pieces and was a great place to start our Florence excusion.

I am not a museum going but I was interest with the Duomo lines and designs. The basement was very interesting to see the Duomo in the early days

When you have seen all the big beautiful attractions this is one that is often missed or overlooked. Beautiful done, easy access. Right behind the Duomo easy to find. Paintings, sculptures, replicas of the building of the duomo, and much more.Elevators to upper floors.

A collection of the original various sculptures and decorations that used to decorate the facade and interior of the Duomo. The highlight of this place is definitely the Pieta by Michelangelo and the restored Gates of Paradise. Photographs are allowed here so you can photograph both of these to your hearts content. The Gates of Paradise will blow you away the first time you see it. Larger than life and restored to its former glory, you can stand there and marvel at it for hours. We spent at least an hour in the Gates of Paradise room alone. Don't miss this as you can take your time to admire it without crowds jostling you.

Even the young boys in our group liked this museum since the exhibit about restoring the Ghiberti doors impressed upon them the effects of time and pollution. They finally "got it" seeing the before and after photos of the doors being submerged in vats of cleaning solution and then reading the descriptions about the special lasers that burnt off the dirt without hurting the bronze or gold. And they could get close enough to the doors to try and decipher what bible stories were depicted, so there was a sleuthing component.
