About Accademia Gallery, Florence

One sculpture alone makes this one of the most visited museums in Florence – the famous statue of David by Michelangelo. Though the galley had acquired the statue in 1973 to kick-off its Michelangelo collection, today only a small collection of the great artist exists on site.

There are collections by other Florentine artists in the hall. The halls are as follows:

  • The Tribune: The David is housed here.
  • Gipsoteca Bartolini: An exhibition on the 19th century technique of using plaster models to create statues.
  • Florentine Gothic: Important 13th and 14th century paintings.
  • Museum of Musical Instruments: These were collected from the Medicis.
  • Florence Between 1370 and 1430 – General artwork, most of which are masterpieces.

Some of the iconic masterpieces on display are:

  • Giambologna's ‘Rape of the Sabines’, a statue of three intertwined figures.
  • Michelangelo’s Slaves (a.k.a Prisoners)
  • The Cassone Adimari painting of marriage between Boccaccio Adimari and Lisa Ricasoli.
  • The panel painting “Coronation of the Virgin” by Jacopo di Cione.

  • You can not leave Florence without seeing David! It's impressive The rest of the paintings and objects are too, but the statue is definitely the main attraction. Buy your tickets far before you go, because it's not worth to stand in line for hours. You can also achieve your tickets nearby the entrance of the Galleria. You pay 4€ more of reservation fee, but you can almost go directly in without passing by this huge line. There are tour guides who will try to sell a tour for 1 hour for at least 40€ per person, which I think is super overrated. Children under 18 go for free. And under 25 they have a reduction! Do take your ID.

  • This is hard to rate because most of the gallery is 3 star. There are only a few particularly interesting artworks. Then you have David, which is one of the greatest artistic masterpieces ever in any form. It's an absolute must see for David but if you got rid of the rest of the gallery you wouldn't be missing much. There is so much art elsewhere in Florence that's better. Spend most of your time elsewhere.

  • I have always underestimated how fascinating one is when viewing David. That is until I saw him in person. The level of detail is mind blowing. There are also many other statues and paintings to enjoy here. This is definitely something that should be seen at least once. Regardless of artistic interest.

  • This is a beautiful museum filled with paintings and sculptures. The sculpture "David" by Michelangelo is on display here. The entrance fee is €8 for the normal queue. However, people start queuing from 08h00. There's also a musical instruments museum within the exhibit.

  • Great gallery. Must see David. It takes your breath away. Just plan ahead. Line was very long. We asked our hotel and they were able to get us tickets to the front and we didn't have to wait all day.
