We went to a special exhibition on Florentine artists. Entrance €12. Audio guides were available for an additional charge €3.50. The gallery provided very good information written on large notice boards as well as on the audio guide. There were not only explanations about the paintings and drawings on display but also the history and development of such art during the renaissance. On the audio guide you could find much more detailed background information if desired. I would say take the audio guide only if you have a lot of time to make use of it. I don't know what languages were available. The gallery was somewhat cramped and crowded with the number of visitors and it wasn't always easy to find a comfortable place from which to look. There were guided tours available, certainly in German, but I am not sure if other languages were available. Groups moving through the area didn't help with space.
Great collection of paintings. I especially enjoyed the Renaissance section. It is huge and has great works from Rembrandt, Rubens, Raphael and Titian, among several others. The staff was really regardful and was of great help.
Absolutely stunning collection. A lot of old masters and their works. Exposition is reasonably placed. Interesting audio guide.
Massive collection of great art work, mostly christian related. Some doesn't provide english description. Might not be interested if you're not christian
Impressive and large galleries where their permanent exhibits are housed. However, the temporary Florenz exhibit is an organizational failure. They do not have appointments set as is common for many special exhibits throughout the art museum world. It was pointless to enter as one has no room to see or in places you have to walk between people and paintings. At one point I did this just to get by a group of people and a guard made a point to chase me and tell me off for walking too close to paintings. I was walking just inside the tape that is about 60cm or so from the wall. When I told him in German that there were too many people, he told me to be quiet. I immediately left as I found the experience annoying. You can get a better experience and education about the history and patronage of art in Florence online with a nice cup of tea and no crowds or annoying officials. I have just dropped my rating to two stars after I found that the main entrance to the lower gallery is closed. The remaining entry is only accessible through the over crowded café where waiters refuse to give way to patrons. These negative experiences I am reporting are primarily due to very poor management.
