    It's worth a lot to visit this Museum, which tells the whole story of the Cathedral since your construction including the details of all the pieces that adorn the Duomo of Milan.

    The duomo Museum complements that of the latter: a multitude of statues, tapestries, a wooden model of the duomo,... This museum is pretty big, and has several rooms where the visitor will be really interested if he is first passionate religious art... The entrance to the duomo also allows the Museum so all the more reason to make a detour.

  • Nice small museum with interesting exhibit related to Duomo. The souvenir shop has some goodies too.
  • Very nice museum. A little of the history from catholicism as well as some interesting facts about the Duomo's construction.
  • Entry to this museum Congress with the tickets for the Duomo, the museum is a bit of an add-on. Not the most exciting thing ever, but I liked some of the statutes with interesting faces.
  • Interesting to walk through but after the cathedral it doesn't impress as much. Since it's included in the ticket to Duomo, I'd say stroll for half an hour if you can.
  • Amazing collection of statues and great display. If possible, i would get an audioguide next time!
