Most interesting to see what was uncovered in the ground near the cathedral. The mosaics are fantastic and other parts of pots and building parts. But no explanations in English so I made up my own stories as to what things were. Should have gotten the audio guide.

The entrance to this museum was included in the ticket to the baptistry.
Located in Piazza del Duomo, there are some interesting things to look at, but I wouldn't really recommend it, unless you have the combined ticket. Most of it was in Italian too.

The admission to this museum was included with the baptistery. It is quite uninteresting and unfortunately none of the pieces have an English write up so you really don't know what you are seeing.
The lady at the front who checks your ticket couldn't be bothered to explain anything either .... Almost irritated to see anyone arrive ..... No wonder it's almost empty!

Visiting the Baptistery was the reason for visiting this museum. Your Baptistery ticket includes entrance to the museum. There are some of the original statues from the outside of the Baptistery and some neat mosaics but not a very large collection. Since you must pay for it, it's worth a look.

Right next door to the cathedral. Mix of archaeological finds and sculpture, pre 11th century. Nicely displayed, but signs translated to English would be helpful.
