We made reservations almost a week before and didn’t wind up needing them. We got in before our reservation time and it wasn’t crowded at all. I thought we would need reservations based on my visit to Florence 4 1/2 years ago in the summer when I didn’t have reservations and missed my opportunity to see the David. My recommendation is to get the reservations just to be safe and see what happens when you get there.over 3 years ago

I have to say, I was dissapointed by this museum. I went there to see the David, which was worth the trip (even though you can find replicas all over the city, the real thing is a lot better). Also liked a few of MIchelangelo’s later works which were unfinished. It was awesome to see these 3d characters which seemed to almost be pulling themselves out of a 2d world. Really awesome. Besides that though, the museum is very small and didn’t hold my interest. There is some religious art, but I prefer seeing that inside a church. There was a bit on instruments which was ok, but not mind blowing. And a special photo exhibition that didn’t interest me much either. The only other thing I liked seeing were some Russian Icons.
You can stand in line if you want, but if you buy a ticket down the road at one of the other museums, you can get an icecream, sit in the shade and laugh at the people sweating in the queue while you wait for your own timeslot.over 3 years ago
In the winter, there is hardly anyone there when they extend the hours.
My friend and I were the only two people in the whole academy, with the David all to ourselves. It was amazing.
It was raining and dark out, and inside, it was marvelous.over 4 years ago
