  • There is no words to describe the beauty of this museum. The Pieta di Michelangelo was amazing , I had tears while i was admiring all the beautiful masterpieces.  more »
  • This museum is a must see in Florence. Apart from the impressive exhibition dedicated to the dome of the Cathedral, it stores the originals of the Golden doors of the baptistery of the Cathedral, as well as relics of the Saints, and sculptures by Donatello, Mikelazhelo, etc. The main Pearl of the Museum is the collection late Pietà Michelangelo, created by artist in 80 years. Unlike the Uffizi Gallery here much less visitors and works can be enjoyed virtually alone.

  • Well arranged museum, containing all the treasures from Duomo Firenze. When the empty cathedral is a bit of disappointment upon arrival, this museum definitely worth a visit. Michelangelo's late work Pietá (removal of Christ from the cross) incl.his selfportrait is an unmissable gem there.
  • Very interesting and superbly presented and organized. Precious works by Donatello, and the famous Gates of Paradise by Lorenzo Ghiberti. Not to be missed!
