The building itself is a master piece of Renaissance architecture. Regarding the exhibitions, you can easily tell that the curators have put so much efforts in putting them together. Don't miss also the lively events that happen from time to time.

Not being very well informed on this type of exhibit, the interpretive information was excellent and well done. Sometimes when one visits a place like this, the experience can leave you feeling a lack of knowledge to really appreciate the works. Not here, well done Strozzi.

You can see from the former reviews that is an extraordinary exhibit, gathered from museums around the world! You won't get another chance to see such a collection in one place! You, can, in fact, at this point, take pictures--not sure why anyone had trouble--maybe they were using flash. Although I don't think flashes could hurt bronze, I think a... More

For one who visits Florence on a regular basis and who has seen the obligatory sites and museums, Palazzo Strozzi is one place I always check when I am coming back. It has a history of mounting thought-provoking and excellent exhibitions that are always a delight and that always fit in a reasonable time frame, an easy morning or afternoon.... More

Worth going out of your way for. Put together from other collections around the world. Interesting to note others commenting about no photography ... there seemed to be no restrictions during our visit, cameras everywhere! Maybe the staff were on Easter holiday? So glad we were able to take pics to remember this most incredible visit.

We saw the exhibition of the above name a few days ago. It is a collection of ancient bronze statues or parts that have been borrowed from near and far for this museum to display. Unfortunately, many remains have been buried, shattered, or simply smelted down for their metal, so only few remain, but these were priceless. The origins were... More

We wanted to see the Power and Pathos exhibition of bronzes on display at the Palazzo Strozzi until June 2015. The displays were very good with several dozen bronzes from around the world and very good English descriptions for each item, although the lighting was so dim that a few were quite hard to read. No idea why photography is... More

Spectacular is the only word that I can use to describe this exhibition. It contains a limited number of original Classical works of art in bronze, spaciously arranged in 6 discrete exhibition areas. Most of the works of art were displayed at eye level so that you could actually see every hair on each head. The labeling was exceptional; there... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the Picasso exhibit which runs for another week or so. The art and the English signage were great. Enjoyed seeing the school groups making sketches of the artwork. Very well done.
