A great many works of art were created for the Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore, that were never placed inside, and some that were removed. This museum, right next to the Duomo, is where these spectacular pieces of displaced art are stored. There are also some other works removed from their original locations for conservation.

Its highlights are:

  • Lorenzo Ghiberti's Gates of Paradise doors for the Baptistery of Florence Cathedral.
  • The singing-galleries by Luca della Robbia and Donatello.
  • The Deposition, a pietà Michelangelo made for his own tomb.
  • Silver altar with scenes from the life of Saint John the Baptist.
  • The original sculptural decoration of Giotto’s Bell Tower.

The organisation, Opera di Santa Maria del Fiore, was created in the 13th century to oversee the creation of the Cathedral, and to look after its maintenance. This task it performs to this day.
