In particular, there is a group of sculptures by Nicola and Giovanni Pisano which used to decorate the Baptistery and the Cathedral, but which were removed to the museum during restoration work. Among the many fascinating items on display, there is the Romanesque era ‘Exultet’ liturgical scroll, an Islamic griffon which used to be on the roof of the Cathedral, busts and statues by Nicola and Giovanni Pisano which were once in the Baptistery, an ivory Madonna with Child by Giovanni Pisano and sculptures by Tino di Camaiore (the tomb and altar of San Ranieri and the monument dedicated to emperor Arrigo VII).
