Masterpieces
Over 750 works of art covering 720 years of history

The largest concentration of Florentine monumental sculpture in the world includes medieval and Renaissance statues and reliefs in marble, bronze and silver by the leading artists of the era. Most of the masterpieces on display were specifically designed to adorn the interior or exterior of the religious monuments that still stand on the museum's doorstep: the Baptistry of San Giovanni, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore (the "Duomo") and Giotto's Bell Tower. The Museo dell'Opera provides the ideal setting for the works of art made for these buildings, which today form a single group known as the "Great Museum of the Cathedral". 


The Rooms
A tour encompassing twenty-five rooms on three floors

The Museo dell'Opera's 6,000 sq. mt. surface area consists of twenty-five rooms on three floors comprising a partial renewal of the museum, several totally new exhibition halls and innovative areas to link the two. For the very first time, a spectacular new design hosts the museum's unique masterpieces in a setting reflecting the environment for which they were originally designed, creating a museum within a museum in a concentration of faith, art and history unparalleled anywhere in the world encapsulating the very roots of Western culture.

Educational tour
The language of art

A series of educational activities and workshops have been designed to accompany and to enhance school programmes, helping students to learn in a creative, cross-disciplinary manner, with regular lectures, hands-on activities and multi-media tools for exploring the museum's masterpieces in greater depth.


Special initiatives
A multi-purpose area

An area for temporary exhibitions, thematic exhibitions and special events is devoted to dialogue with other museums and with the international world of culture as a whole.


Panoramic terrace
A breathtaking view

A visit to the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo ends, fittingly, on a panoramic terrace offering a truly remarkable and unfamiliar view of Brunelleschi's dome, a panorama that aptly summarises the key to understanding the new museum's underlying purpose, showing how the drama of beauty has served the faith down the ages.
