Some, I hope, pleasant and useful changes have been made to opening hours of the main Milanese sightseeing attraction – Duomo Cathedral.

DUOMO CATHEDRAL OPENING HOURS CHANGE – MAIN MILANESE SIGHTSEEING ATTRACTION

New opening hours:

Duomo terraces (roof):  daily 9.00-23.00

The entrance is charged now, but the fee is nominal - €2 and it also includes Duomo Museum visit,

a separate entrance fee to the museum used to be €6! So the changes like this, I think, are beneficial to everybody. Moreover the entire ticket is valid for 72 hours, so you can visit these Milanese sightseeing attractions without any haste. I have already written about what you should pay attention to in Duomo Cathedral on your own, and today I would like to tell you about Duomo Museum in more detail.

It is situated in Palazzo Reale (address: Piazza del Duomo 12) about 20 m on the right hand side of Duomo Cathedral entrance.

By the way Palazzo Reale is also a venue of the fascinating exhibition of the works by Leonardo da Vinci till July 19, please see the details here.

And what are interesting items to be found in Duomo Museum?

Here we can follow the multi-century (about five centuries) history of Duomo Cathedral construction, which, of course, left a lot of items that became true works of art: glass paintings, copies of the statues ornamenting Duomo, paintings, tapestries and jewelry. The museum numbers totally 26 exhibition halls chronologically telling you about all cathedral construction phases from the foundation in 1386 to the XX-th century.

There are halls of Duomo treasures

This is a very rich and complete exposition, I recommend everybody visiting the museum, moreover it is almost free of charge!

Opening hours:

Monday: 14.30 to 18.30

Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sundayе: 9.30 to 19.30

Thursday and Saturday: 9.30 to 22.30

The only disadvantage in my opinion is long queues for the ticket office, therefore I recommend buying tickets in advance on-line at the official website TicketOne.it :

TicketOne.it: Biglietti per Concerti, Teatro, Musical, Sport e molto altro... Acquista ora online!

where you can also buy a general ticket to visit Duomo and Duomo Terrace and you will save a lot of time! All you have to do is type Duomo di Milano in the search line.

I wish a nice trip!
