Overview

The closure of three sections of what was known as the "New Duomo" (in 1339 anyway) brought about the foundation of this museum. From the museum it is possible to climb up to the top of the front of the Duomo for a view of the city and beyond. Among the most important works displayed; "Madonna and Child" by Jacopo della Quercia, "Majesty" by Duccio and the altarpiece with Blessed Agostino Novello by Simone Martini. There is also an important reliquary and the collection of sculpture by Giovanni Pisano.
