  • The building is an impressive mass and it seems that it is only used as exhibition centre. I have coincided with the expo "Libero" Ai Wei Wei and it has been a very good experience. For my taste (and tired) the exhibition of photographs of the "Strozzina" in the Netherlands is too extensive. Another thing positive, to visit it in winter, is that the schedule of opening is quite more extensive that the rest of attractions of the city. Them Thursday, the expo was until them 23.00

  • A premise: to appreciate contemporary art exhibitions, and this one in particular, it is essential to get already prepared. If you're not able to go into that in print or on the web, it is recommended the guided tour. In this regard, without doing wrong "human" guides of exhibitions at Palazzo Strozzi, always talented and highly skilled, I would give advice to those who want to visit the exhibition "Ai Weiwei." but it's Free ... alone and has little time to spare: spend a few dollars more and rent the audioguide. By typing the number corresponding to each work, you can simultaneously listen to the explanation from the voice of the curator of the exhibition: Arturo white album, which is also the new Director General of the fondazione Palazzo Strozzi. Personally I decided to visit this exhibition, that initially I left a little perplexed by all the controversy had stirred in the city, just after watching a documentary on Channel 5 about half an hour, in which the same white album was driving the viewer through the halls of the exhibition. The same explanations, super competent yet understandable to everyone, I found them again, naturally expanded, the audioguide. Cost of the audioguide: 5 euros. We need a document to leave it at the reception. Cost of the ticket: 12 €, but discounts are available for many categories of users. Ask at the ticket office. The exhibition is open daily, including holidays (10-20 times, Thursdays 10-23), until January 22, 2017.

  • Less well known than all those other classic museums, but that's why refreshing. As now the great exposition of Ai Weiwei that already on the outside begins with the rubber boats that he has hung at the Windows of the palazzo.

  • Fantastic modern art gallery. Really liked the current exhibition of Ai Weiwei.
  • Really impressive facade. If the suns not too hot it's a great place to stop for a beer or for some meat and cheese across the street.
  • Great museum and the smaller exhibition was even for free! Don't miss out on the cafe in the courtyard.
  • Great exhibitions. Be sure to check in advance, and reserve at least a couple of hours if you want to see the art exhibition thoroughly.
  • This is the first place I go when I come to Florence, as the art gallery here offers some of the best curated art exhibits I've ever been to, so if you are an art lover you can't miss it. There is no permanent collection on exhibit, only the temporary exhibitions which are completely diverse from one to the next.
