  • One of the most beautiful museums of Europe, one often leave behind in your visit to Florence. Access is comfortable, there is usually no so many rows, and inside we expect plenty of wonders and many masterpieces of the history of art.

  • If only the building itself is worth the cost of the ticket: the courtyard, the rooms decorated ... a gem. Then the David di Donatello, Andrea della robbia, Brunelleschi ... must see.

  • Bargello Museum is located in the historic centre of Florence, just a few steps from the Duomo. Very interesting the structure that houses the collections, which used to be a prison. There are many works not to be missed by those of Giambologna in those of Donatello. Very interesting also the ceramics and Oriental ivories room. For anyone who loves statuary a museum not to be missed. The only fault very low hours. Very good the price.

  • 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.
