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.

  • A must-go to see the statue of David. Staff is very kind, knowledgeable, and informed. They are passionate about the artworks and the history of the gallery and are always excited to inform museum goers of anything they are curious about. The art gallery is also well organized and informative about its artworks. Overall, a required location to go to when visiting Florence, especially to go see the statue of David. I recommend getting the tickets online or through a tour before going to the gallery, to avoid the long ticket/wait lines. The tickets are given by time slots. This art gallery is definitely a must when in Florence!

  • We went for one main reason: Michelangelo's Statue of David. It is different in person... As in better. I think the scale of the effort, planning, execution. The importance of perspective... These things are lost until you see it in person. Walk around the statue - all the way around. Note the sling, the tendons, the way he sculpted the biceps, the veins in the hands and neck... Other aspects were good as well, but this was my main interest and I was not disappointed.

  • Amazing! Reservations are a must as we saw some people get turned away because there were no more tickets available for the day. Very small museum, most people go directly to see David but there are some beautiful paintings. Check out Michelangelo‚Äôs earlier sculptures which give you insight into the development process for the masterpiece that is David. An hour or 90 minutes is sufficient for this museum.

  • Don't miss this! The statue of David is so impressive that I would define this gallery as a must. There are more statues by Michelangelo called the prisoners which also reveal the great mastery needed to carve these statues. Personally I did not know much about Michelangelo, but I downloaded an audio guide by Rick Steves, that gave a nice tour in the gallery. It gave me some perspective on the exhibition. Also, You should order the tickets beforehand. You will still stand in line but it will be much shorter. Enjoy!

  • The Academia displays some beautiful Renaissance paintings and a variety of sculpture work, but the highlight is Michelangelo's "David" and other unfinished sculptures. Truly a must-see as pictures do not do justice to the size and detail of his work. In October 2018, the Florence Pass was worth the cost because it got us into major sites like this with very little waiting in line.
