Wonderfully peaceful museum with some fantastic statues. Great experience after the busy Uffizi galery (which was wonderful too, but much more crowded).

While not the Uffizi, this museum represents and shows a lot of sculpture, pre schulpture models, glass and metal work showing the progression of artistic talent. It is a must in Florence!

This is the place to come to see renaissance statues. We toured the museum with the Rick Steve's audio tour and it was very interesting to see how different artists portrayed the same subject and how those different portrayals reflect the state of art at...More

This museum has many sculptures as well as many other forms of art. Beginning in the courtyard there are many sculptures by several different artists. Then one steps inside and finds many, many more. We spent several hours inside admiring the art. The explanatory panels...More

This museum provides art, sculptures, and artifacts unlike other museums in Florence. While the flow felt a little confusing at times, the curation was wonderful and the information engaging. The building itself is beautiful. Best of all, no line and not at all crowded!

A great collection and we are glad we went. The variety of Michelangelo, Donatello and Bologna sculptures was really great. The facility however could use improvement. The lighting was pretty bad and the sculptures were largely scattered over large spaces. A modestly annoying feature was,...More

Surprisingly delightful museum just a block from Piazza Signoria. Very few people there. Walked thru in less than 2 hours. It has several Michaelangelo sculptures as well as the famous David by Donatello. Was shocked that wasnt in a larger museum like the Uffizzi.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

Hi In all honesty I didn't find them particularly engaging but definitely not rude. I would really recommend visiting the museum
