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.
