The site of this museum was once the studio where Michelangelo sculpted his masterpiece" David". It now uses the original " Gates of Paradise" by Ghiberti with the explanation of its Old Testament scenes. There are also works by Michelangelo, Donatello, Verrocchio, and Robbia

The sculptures and paintings preserved in this museum are magnificent. The modern building and proper security also are a relief considering so many risks nowadays.

This recently opened museum (2015) houses all the treasures from the Duomo and then some. They are beautifully displayed on multiple levels. Give yourself 2 hours. But well worth the time and money.

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.
