Museum of Opera of Saint Maria of Fiore Reviews
Spectacular museum. The Doors to Paradise are worth the visit on their own. But it's more than just the doors here. See the entire museum. more »
The Museum was included in our Duomo ticket and we initially thought of skipping it but im glad we went here. The museum is very well organized and they have done a good job at explaining everything.... more »
History, faith and art!! All here. Really though: what's not to love!!!! It's the only museum in the heart of Firenze!! I enjoy walking here at night. It looks surreally beautiful! Out of this world renaissance beauty!!MichaelAngelo, Paolo!! The bell tower!! That view from up above!!! Museum!! Baptism!! It's magnificent from both inside and out!
Interesting rabbit warren filled with items. Lovely 'Touchable' replicas of some of the main exhibits (take care not to touch the wrong things) & fascinating details about the dome, including Brunelleschi's death mask. Pieta & Penitent Magdalena on ground floor Room 10. Plenty of clean toilets. Only downside is the lack of information about the pieces etc. We enjoyed our couple of hours there & 10 year old quite happy too.
