We bought a joint ticket for this and the octagonal Baptistery across the piazza. Didn’t really find this museum overly exciting, apart form the odd-looking stone lions. Maybe if there had been some information in English available then we might’ve given a higher rating.

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.

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