The first room on the upper floor contains two choir lofts, dating to the 1430's by Luca della Robbia and Donatello. Carved in crisp white marble and decorated with coloured glass and mosaic, both depict children playing musical instruments and dancing. Other works by Donatello in this room are his statue of "La Maddalena" (1455) and several Old Testament figures. The room to the left contains an exhibition of the tablets which used to decorate the bell tower. A lower level houses examples of the tools used by Brunelleschi's workmen and a copy of di Cambio's original cathedral facade.
