The museum is located in the south hall of the cathedral and keeps several hundred exhibits, including some really marvelous examples. It is worth the admission fee.

Definitely work a visit; inexpensive entrance fee. You will find countless jeweled sacred items, as well as the gold mantel that covered an icon of Mary and Jesus that no longer exists.
