  • 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.

  • Very good museum to visit. Lot of interesting things to see. Make sure to check visiting hours because they don't correspond with those stated here.
  • Great Museum holding some of the most important Italian sculptures. The building on its own Is amazing and has an interesting story. Also a must visit in Florence if you are into arts, especially sculpture.
  • Pretty cool museum! I really liked the current exhibition. 8€ is the regular ticket which is a bit pricey for a single not huge museum. The ceramics room was awesome though
  • Exquisite collection of pre-Renaissance and Renaissance artefacts including exhibits from the Arab and Islamic civilizations.
  • Fantastic and underrated. Loads of famous sculptures such as Donatello's David, set in a former prison. Upstairs has some interesting collections too.
