  • A beautiful building with a courtyard that is used also for refined concerts. Inside one of the first portraits of Dante and Donatello's David. Worth it!!

  • Meanwhile the place is beautiful, the glance of the inner courtyard of the building is already worth a visit; the exhibition covers 3 floors and there is everything from ceramics to sculpture (really nice Big room with several works by Donatello), from coins to arms (the room dedicated to the armor, helmets, saddles, etc I found particularly fascinating). Recommended.

  • 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.
