To fully appreciate the leaning tower and stunning Duomo you really have to visit this museum which is packed full of artefacts and information about the religious area's history as well as that of Pisa and it's artist's. Much of the actual original art, sculptures and architecture of the cathedral, tower and baptistery can be found in this old converted convent, up close so you can properly admire their beauty.
As if the collection wasn't enough though the enclosed garden offers some brilliant views up at the tower which leans over it as well as of the rest of the duomo complex - especially at sunset! We got some of our best pictures from the loggia that surround the garden.
In addition, the fact that this museum is relatively quite was particularly nice after we had come from the crowded museums of Florence.
