Museum of the Cathedral Vestry Board
Housed in a former monastery off the southeastern corner of the piazza, the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo displays a trove of sculptures, oil paintings, parchments, frescoes, marquetry, silverware, vestments, and wooden crucifixes. Most of these objects once adorned the various monuments in the Field of Miracles, but officials moved them here for safety reasons. The museum also boasts an archaeological collection with Etruscan, Roman, and Egyptian artifacts.
