  • Everyone goes to the Uffizi and Academy. However, the David of Donatello and Verrocchio, a very good collection of so-called Arts minors (ceramic, medals...), a collection of weapons, which in my humble opinion is more interesting than the in the Tower of London, are in the Bargello. In addition is a building very nice, with a medieval restoration fairly well done. Furthermore, there were many people (in November). Perhaps by not expect what I had (I was going for the David Di Donatello) pair my was the best of the trip.

  • Visited thanks to free Sundays of the State museums. Not being an art expert might have been better to have a guide to figure it out in full cmq I realized it is a museum to be valued, especially its "highlight" the "David di Donatello" perhaps "neglected".

  • Really nice museum with a bit of everything. We were extremely impressed until we saw everything else the city has! Recommended for a 5 day trip, but it's not top of the must do list for Florence.
  • Very interesting musem with a unique collection of ceramics, porcelain and sculpture. Not crowded at all so its worth a visit to experience some history minus the crowds.
  • Really enjoyed the museum. It has a little bit of everything: art, artifacts, and more. We especially enjoyed the room if maps and the room of ancient weapons.
  • Beautiful and worth the price. Great collection of armor and weapons and the castle is beautiful too! Not too busy!
  • Very good, relaxed museum with sculptures (including many by Donatello), coins, weapons, and more. Be sure to check it out if you're passing by. Also, the entry is only 4 euros - much cheaper than any other museum in Florence.
