  • nothing special but it is worth going ...the egyptian section is very good....cheap entry [ 5 or 6 euro ] ....peaceful place away from Duomo madness... 
  • Museum rich in material evidence and I would say Hapy. Here you can admire, among others, the chimaera of Arezzo and the famous François vase. Beautiful also the Coptic Museum and Egyptian wing: I was impressed especially the stuffs, stored in various drawers to shelves! We also did a tour in the palace garden Cross (inquire well on days when it is proposed, because there is always. We made on Saturday): Here you can enjoy various types of Etruscan tombs faithfully reconstructed with original materials (Yes, you read right. Around the early ' 900 some graves in the Maremma were completely dismantled and rebuilt here). I'm unfortunately forced to give 4 stars instead of 5 because I just don't understand the Museum's hours. the Saturdays and Sundays close at 14.00, while the rest of the week at 19.00?

  • Over the years, I've been to Florence many times, but this was my first visit to this museum—I was missing out big time. This museum has amazing exhibits, and I could easily have spent many more hours...  more »

  • Cheap and so good value for money in terms of sheer number of objects. Some interesting stories to tell in terms of Etruscan pots and Egyptian burial practices and fabrics. Three problems. Some lighting made it impossible to view objects either because you had to stand between light and object to see it or because nobody had thought about the reflection coming off the perspex screens. A cloak was impossible to examine. There are better ways of lighting photosensitive objects: lower light in the room as a whole for example. Second, related, there wasn't enough room sometimes to see whole displays. So back up to read some text and you find yourself backing into another display case. Also one of the security staff was overbearing present to the point of making me uncomfortable. By all means watch what I'm doing but don't follow me at a constant distance (step for step. I started shuffling a few paces at a time to test it). For context I am in my thirties, a historian, and there was nothing in that area that was not secured behind perspex or glass. I didn't look like a threat. Made it hard to try to compare bits of material culture though. It was a relief when some kids came in: staff member was on them like a shot.
  • Almost doesn't belong in a city with such sterling museums, though still worth a visit despite the down-at-the-heels feel (especially the first floor, the dingy stairwells, the missing signage and solo water closet). Houses stunning ancient artifacts, especially Etruscan treasures.
  • A forgotten jewel in Florence with many stunning pieces. Forgotten means: some items out of place, sometimes no captions, lack of light.
  • No one visit there. All the explanations written in Italian.
  • The Etruscans have been so neglected and this is one of a few places to help to fill In one of the classical world's lacunas.
