PLEASE NOTICE: the museum is closed until further notice.
The Duomo Museum is an enchanting and silent place, almost hidden, compared to the much more imposing cathedral. It's worth a visit, however, to prepare yourself to admire the Duomo. You will have the opportunity to have a closer look to the original sculptures, tasting the colours of the marble and the details of unique works of art, which we find in copy placed on the external facade of the cathedral at dizzying heights.
This is a rather young museum located in the ground floor rooms of Palazzo Reale since its inauguration in 1953. The tour is structured as an interesting storytelling of the history of the Duomo through the centuries; what catches the eye is the chorality of the Duomo's enterprise, a slow and patient work, with a centuries-long duration, in which artists, architects and so on have followed one another creating what is still today the symbol of the city of Milano. A place that never stops telling and inspiring the Milanese locals.
