The Museo dell'Opera del Duomo in Florence is completely new.

abacucThe museum has not only been refurbished, but it has undergone a completely new conception. The museum was founded in 1891 in order to give care to the works of art made for adorning the interior or exterior of the religious monuments of the Cathedral complex.

In fact the Museum has got the largest concentration of Florentine monumental sculpture including medieval and Renaissance statues and reliefs in marble, bronze and silver by the leading artists of the era: Arnolfo di Cambio, Giotto, Donatello, Luca della Robbia, Lorenzo Ghiberti and others.

The most important and astonishing news is the room which welcomes the visitors. It is a large and high space where the former façade of the Cathedral of Florence has been rebuilt and adorned with the statues originally made for it. In front of this façade the three restored doors of the Baptistry, so that a virtual piazza Duomo can be admired inside the museum.

The Museo dell'Opera has got 6,000 sq. mt. surface area and twenty-five rooms on three floors.

The Duomo or Cathedral Complex is made of the Cathedral itself with the Crypt of Santa Reparata, the New Museum of the Opera del Duomo, the Brunelleschi's Dome, the Baptistry and the Giotto's Belltower.

The regular price is 15 euro per person including the whole complex.

The entrance to the Cathedral (the church) is free for everybody.

Until January 24, 2016 a ticket including the entrance to the exhibition  Divine Beauty at Palazzo Strozzi,  to the New Museo dell'Opera del Duomo and to the Baptistry can be bought for a special price of 12 euro.
