Accademia Gallery - Review

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.

Accademia Gallery, Florence Reviews

  • Stunning!!! Definitely get your ticket in advance. The crowds are quite large and centered around the main attraction. Take the time to look at the other rooms if there are too many people looking at The David. As for The David, it far surpassed any expectations I had. Stunning work. So glad it is being preserved for centuries to come.

  • We got there around 9:30 and had tickets for 10:30 entry. There was no one in the reservation line so they let us in early. We were ahead of the crowd and we're able to walk right up to Michelangelo's David which really is as good as advertised. The museum is a very manageable size. There are some unfinished Michelangelo sculptures. Work of other sculptors is in another room which included some cool videos about the casting process. There we're additional exhibits elsewhere but those were my highlights.

  • As spectacular as I imagined. So many famous works from history, and of course the most famous of all: the statue of David. Expect it to be ways busy, with wait times. But I didn't find it to take away from the experience. We booked with a tour to avoid the lines, but if I were to do it again I'd ask to separate from the group to explore the gallery on my own pace.

  • Make sure you book a Skip the Line ticket online and note the reduced price for EU citizens

  • Go in the late afternoon! There won’t be any line. Don’t pay the vendors outside trying to upsell you on skip the line tickets. Just wait til like 2 or 3 pm and the line will be gone. Museum is cool. Tons of religious art. David statue is huge and totally worth seeing.
