Now it is truly extraordinary, for its backgrounds (especially in sculpture by Arnolfo di Cambio, Andrea Pisano, Donatello, Ghibreti and its original doors of the baptistery, Lucca della Robbia, Verrocchio or Michelangelo) and for its very well structured and very didactic, such as the reconstruction of the pri9mera cover of the temple with original sculptures, the building elements of the quadbpulus, the Silver Altar and many other things. The best thing about Florence, that's what i mean. Don't miss it.
This is a must when visiting Florence. Many of the original treasures of the Duomo and even Orsanmichele and the Baptistery are displayed there. 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.
