The new Museum dell'Opera del Duomo is spread over an exhibition area of 5500 meters, which was obtained by adding to the surface of the old museum the one of the adjacent structure of the Intrepid Theatre, combining these two buildings and creating a prestigious location that enhances with light and space every work of art in this museum. In the spaces of the new museum of the Opera del Duomo there are monumental masterpieces like the Doors of Paradise by Lorenzo Ghiberti and the other two doors of the Baptistery, which are placed in the Hall of Ancient facade of the Duomo. In this section of the museum they also rebuilt a copy of the old unfinished facade of the Duomo in Florence. They placed on it forty statues and figurines of the original cathedral, safe from the ravages of the weather.
