Museo dell'Opera Metropolitana, Siena

(400+ reviews on the web)
Art Museum
Immerse yourself in some of Italy's most significant works of art at Museo dell'Opera Metropolitana. The gallery features a collection of works from the Duomo, including the main altarpiece and a piece of stained glass. Climb up 130 stairs to the panorama viewpoint for what is arguably the best view of Siena. Be warned that the stairs to the top are small and winding, so not suitable for all visitors. Also, only 30 are allowed up at a time, so lines may form--don't be surprised if you have to wait a bit. Upon entering this museum you have the option of purchasing a ticket solely for entry here, or a combination ticket which also includes the crypts, baptisery, and panoramic viewpoint.

  • We are not fans of this type of Museum, but the works are well developed. The room dedicated to the sculptures of Pisano's beautiful! Beautiful view of the city!

  • Very dures, worth seeing museum what at the ops si pass there is. Should you visit then already, it is each case value. But especially the view then from the unfinished Cathedral facade!

  • Like all museums with religious works, is truly a gem and has to be seen absolutely but something extra is the magnificent view that can be admired from the facciatone. 79 steps to paradise.
