  • Interesting rabbit warren filled with items. Lovely 'Touchable' replicas of some of the main exhibits (take care not to touch the wrong things) & fascinating details about the dome, including Brunelleschi's death mask. Pieta & Penitent Magdalena on ground floor Room 10. Plenty of clean toilets. Only downside is the lack of information about the pieces etc. We enjoyed our couple of hours there & 10 year old quite happy too.
