The entrance ticket is included in the Baptistery ticket, so go if you are already there. There are some nice mosaics, and statues.

Having bought a ticket for the beautiful Battisterio, one can also visit il Museo Diecesano with the same ticket. It Shows some Roman excavations but is not comparable to the other monuments around the square.

This is a small museum, but worth visiting because of the well-preserved mosaics, and nicely laid out displays.

It's a good thing that the 8 euro combo ticket included the Baptistery entrance because I was a little underwhelmed by this small museum. It had some interesting displays though. Also, it didn't open until 3 pm

This is a nice, small museum . The main reason to buy a ticket is for admittance into the baptistry.

The entrance to this museum was included in the ticket to the baptistry. Located in Piazza del Duomo, there are some interesting things to look at, but I wouldn't really recommend it, unless you have the combined ticket. Most of it was in Italian too.

The admission to this museum was included with the baptistery. It is quite uninteresting and unfortunately none of the pieces have an English write up so you really don't know what you are seeing. The lady at the front who checks your ticket couldn't be...More

Visiting the Baptistery was the reason for visiting this museum. Your Baptistery ticket includes entrance to the museum. There are some of the original statues from the outside of the Baptistery and some neat mosaics but not a very large collection. Since you must pay...More
