You need to come here after visiting the duomo, so you can see all the treasures the duomo has. It is included in the ticket for the duomo. The original gates are really amazing and are a must-see.

Awesome museum. So we'll planned out and spacious. You can see an art piece on numerous floors with a different view. I would recommend this museum to anyone who appreciates art. To see Michelangelo's Piatá is breathtaking or to see the original Gates of Paradise....More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

Not sure 3 yers old can make the cupola climb. I suggest to check what age is allowed.
