  • The Museum is on the other side of the old Palace next to the Piazza della Signoria. It seems to place long time ago, was at the police station prison. Upon entering the room and wider patio, sculpture is body stands in the aisles around. This museum is displayed on the 1st floor and 2nd floor Renaissance sculptures from the middle ages, and other medieval armor and tools used, such as helmet and gun battles also were on the 3rd floor. On the first floor of Michelangelo's famous statue of Bacchus. Statue of Bacchus was less number of pieces made by other sculptors, as well as Michelangelo. There were works such as Adam and Eve. On the second floor and decorated with sculpture, Donatello and Verrocchio's David statue was exhibited. Is not small compared to Michelangelo's statue of David, to emphasize the beauty of the delicate feeling. It will be carved like a great Museum.

  • Needless to say, Florence embodies the best of Italian art. Bargello Museum besides being housed in a historical building exhibits works of the highest level such as Donatello's David, several works of the della Robbia school and much more. A must see

  • The price is right is proportionate (9 euros) to the content of the Museum. Beyond the references I found very interesting review of weapons, armor from different periods, numismatics, Roman and Greek sculptures. It was much more satisfying to the city's finest museums.

  • This is an excellent museum which is often overlooked in a city full of world class museums which is a shame. It is a very impressive museum with many interesting artefacts and exhibits. It is spread out over several floors and is easy to get around all of them to see everything. It has quite a few masterpieces as well including Donatello's David among others. It's also relatively inexpensive o if you have the time, definitely go and check it out.
  • An entire museum dedicated to only sculptures mostly by the reknown masters. Be prepared to spend hours there. The total display contains countless number of beauties.
  • One of my favourite museums in Florence. Home to the first and IMHO the best statue of David...
  • Not the largest but one of the most interesting museum in Florence. Renaissance sculptures (Michelangeolo, Donatello, Verruchio), paintings. The building itself the first public edifice in Florence, spectacular.
  • The museum was easy to navigate. Not as crowded as Uffizi so you can view the sculptural masterpieces of Donatello, Michelangelo, Cellini and Giambologna with ease.
