I had a very bad experience at Palazzo Strozzi today at around 5pm, at the ground floor gift shop. It was a busy day after the Corri la Vita marathon, as hundreds of participants were lining up for the Picasso exhibit taking advantage of the free entrance. The large gift shop has a children's area, with kids books and toys... More

Their special exhibits are just top notch. We heard good things about this museum, but since there's no permanent big draws I think it gets overlooked in a lot of guidebooks. We saw a killer exhibit on Russo & Pondorno. It was a great visit, well laid out with fantastic placards explaining the history and significance of everything you're seeing.... More

i saw there the exhibision ''Pontormo e Rosso'' and it was great. But what absolutely took my breath away was the current show of modern photography ''questioni di famiglia''.

Stopped in to see the Strozzi on this, our fourth trip to Florence; had not seen it before. They were running an exhibit on Pitorno and Fiorentino, comparing and contrasting their evolution as artists. Very interesting show, and a very nice museum. Check to see what the current exhibit is, but very much recommend considering this as a stop.

There is lots to see in Florence, but I highly recommend visiting the Palazzo Strozzi during a visit to this Renaissance city, as it features many noteworthy Art exhibits, both contemporary and historic in nature. I was recently in Florence and saw the Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino exhibit and thought it was beautifully planned and executed. I have seen other... More

Palazzo Strozzi is a wonderful exhibition space at the heart of historic Florence. I visited the exhibtion on Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino, two Florentine painters of the 16th century that deserve wider recognition. Pontormo worked for the Medici Court in Florence, Rosso ended up in the court of France. The show concentrates on their work in Italy and exhibits works... More

The construction of this status symbol of Strozzi Family started in 1498 and remained the seat of the family until 1937 with a 30 years pause when it was confiscated by Duke Cosimo I de Medici. It is a very symmetrical and harmonious building. It is hosting a unique exhibition of the masterpieces of Pontorno and Rosso Fiorentino and another... More

This Palazzo is one of the most important in Florentine history and well-preserved to boot. The Palazzo is quintessential Florentine Renaissance architecture. The interior sculptures, and cafe, are well worth a visit.

Palazzo Strossi is not only beautiful and worth visiting for its own - even just for a brief stop at the cafe - but you can be sure that any exhibition there is a must: so intelligently curated; always with a fascinating story to tell - and really meaningful engagement with its viewers. The current Pontormo and Rossi exhibition is... More
