The new Cathedral Works Museum
After nearly two years of building work, Florence’s wonderful Museo dell'Opera del Duomo (Cathedral Works Museum) is once again open to the public with double the floor space and a new contemporary look. The unique collection of works by masters such as Donatello, Michelangelo, Luca della Robbia and Lorenzo Ghiberti includes statuary from the Duomo, bell tower and baptistery as well as models and other exhibits relating to the building of one of the world's largest cathedrals. Show-stoppers include the bronze panels from the baptistery doors, gleaming from their recent clean-up, Donatello’s emotive Mary Magdalene, the two exquisite cantorie (choir lofts) by Donatello and della Robbia and a vast, to-scale replica of the Duomo's original façade, ripped down in 1587.
