6,000 square meters of surface structured into 28 rooms and divided over three floors: a spectacular setting capable of enhancing unique masterpieces in the world that for the first time are presented in an adequate and faithful way according to the sense for which they were created. A museum within a museum, a concentration of faith, art and history that has no equal in the world.
The Museum was founded in 1891 but in 2015 it was radically renovated. It is conceived as an educational path to discover the places and artists who gave life to the monumental complex of the Opera, the cradle of the Renaissance, and it is today one of the most important museums in the world, both for the value and the number of works of art kept inside, as well as for the architectural and technological avant-garde of its environments and its museographic equipment. Here are preserved the original masterpieces of art that over the course of seven centuries have decorated its monuments: from Michelangelo, to Donatello, Brunelleschi, Ghiberti and countless others.
From August 6th the digital Covid health certificate, or Green Pass, is mandatory to visit the Opera del Duomo Museum.
