The Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, inaugurated in 1986 in the former Episcopal Seminary, had been conceived some years earlier, with a museological project aimed at showing and making clear the development of Pisan art and, in particular, of the Pisan Medieval sculptures which belonged to the buildings of the Square, and whose masterpieces until then had been dispersed in different museum.
Indeed the most prestigious sculptures, which had been removed from the monuments during the frequent restoration works, in particular during the radical restoration of the 19th century, were moved to the Museo Civico, which later became the Museo Nazionale di San Matteo.
Other sculptures, examined and identified in the first half of the 20th century, had been placed in the repositories of the Opera del Duomo after the war. Others sculptures and works coming from different areas of the city were preserved in the Camposanto, the last remains of the strange museum established by Carlo Lasinio at the beginning of the 19th century and which had been almost completely dismantled.

After an in-depth analysis of each piece, the exhibition halls were re-arranged by moving to the new museum all those sculptures which originally belonged to the buildings of the Square.The Cathedral Treasure, consisting of silver plate, liturgical vestments and manuscripts and a small collection of the Cathedral fixtures, was also placed there. A special section was arranged for the Egyptian, Etruscan and Roman relics that had been displayed in the galleries of the Camposanto at the beginning of the 19th century.
