Museo dell'Opera del Duomo

The Opera del Duomo, the Cathedral Workshop or "works commission", was founded by the Republic of Florence in 1296 to oversee the construction of the new cathedral and its bell tower. In 1436, the Cathedral was finished with the completion of Brunelleschi's dome and its consecration.

Since then, the main task for the Opera del Duomo has been to conserve the monuments - including the Baptistry of San Giovanni. In 1891, the Museum was founded to house the works of art which, through the course of the centuries, had been removed from the Duomo and the Baptistry. The museum serves as a refuge from pollution for many of the outside sculptures of the cathedral. It is a museum not often found on many itineraries of Florence, but if you love the Gothic style and sculpture, this museum is a real hidden treasure in Florence, often without a line and easy to enjoy at your leisure!
