  • Evening visit although it closed this square remains a gem not to be missed with his magical harmony

  • Opened by less than two years is a Museum "needed" and really interesting. The exhibition, 1456 sqm on three levels, combines art, architecture, history of childhood and the story of a centuries-old commitment to protect and promote children's rights. On the second floor there is a gallery that exhibits works by authors such as Della Robbia, Sandro Botticelli, Domenico Ghirlandaio. The basement and first floor are dedicated to history, to the evolution of the Institute and architectural path; other 1700 sqm to temporary events and educational activities. The fifteenth-century terrace houses the Cafe del Valle, open to all, enclosed in an innovative structure. Everyone deserves a visit to exit, with emotion, from the obvious tourist tradition

  • Reopened for a few years, the Museum today is a small casket containing the memories and the history of the little orphans. A very exciting path.

  • It's totally worth visiting this museum. The renaissance architecture has been restored and improved to contemporary museum standards in an elegant, tasteful and restrained way. The collection itself, although small, boosts some masterpieces and it's arranged in a modern, minimalist fashion putting into value the works of art. Very good quality museography and explanations.
  • This was one of the most interesting and touching museums we've visited in Europe. If you've had enough of looking at statues and want to see a bit of humanity, come and learn about the first secular organisation to take in abandoned children, and see some stunning architecture. No queues, very affordable (€10 including an audioguide), and well worth the visit.
  • Wonderful and well made museum, especially the historical and artistic parts. Awesome views and area too. Only thing, the café is horrible: 15 minutes for a glass of water.
  • In addition to its collection of paintings (including Ghirlandaio's masterpiece, The Adoration of the Magi), the museum provides a well-curated insight into the 500 year-old history of Florence's foundlings.
  • Very interesting! And more interesting its history
