There is also an interesting museum inside the cathedral. You enter the museum by a side gate inside the cathedral (in the right side) and have to pay an entrance fee for it. We didn't go in as we were running out of time, but it seemed rather interesting.
You will need a whole morning or afternoon to see this huge set of museums in the cathedral complex. There is a combined ticket which could be purchased in three different entrances, which allows you to visit the old cathedral (under the main fassade), the museum entrance into the cathedral, and in Obradoiro Square on the right of the main fassade. It is also valid for the Arzobishop Palace, at the left of the cathedral main fassade.
Includes among others the Relics Chapel, the cloister, the Treasure, Tapistery Museum and the magnificent Inner Stone Chorus destroyed in the middle ages but rebuilt again in the museum premises.
