I think the best title I saw on these reviews was, “An extra circle of hell (Boredom)”. Sadly this was kind of true. Already having a good knowledge of Dante, and his works I... read more

When you go to a museum dedicated to a person, you expect to learn about who he was, where he was born, his work. I wanted to learn who Dante was. This Museum doesn't do that. Why then are you plopped into a place which starts going on about factions of the city of Florence, why is there a battle... More

You can spend your time around Florence much more better than there. It would be better if I avoited going in Dante's house. Hopfully, it was part of Firenze Card, so I payed nothing.

Although I was interested in going here, I was greatly disappointed in the authenticity of artifacts. Many items were what might have been or could possibly be something of Dante's. I want authentic relics and history. Just not worth the time in a city with more to do and see than most people have time to experience.

It's 4 Euros for a walk round Dante's house which is relatively interesting. I was blown away that at the time we visited we saw Dantès death mask on display which made the trip worth it. But as I understand it, this is not usually there. The rest of the items in the house are quite interesting and it is... More

Quite possibly the worst museum I have ever been to. Even if you are a fan of Dante (and I am) this is an utter waste of time and money. The artifacts are very sparse and the authenticity of some are questionable. For instance they have a dagger on display labeled 'Dante's Dagger', but when you read the accompanying text... More

Not worth the wait. It's a pleasant 20-30 minute resting spot to get out of the weather. The passages on the walls describing what you are looking at are valuable because there is not much you would recognize. OK, I'll say it....it's boring.

I went through Dante's house quickly because I was mostly interested in seeing his death mask since reading Inferno by Dan Brown. I passed Beatrice's church on the way. Easy to miss but worth the stop.

Nice museum on three floors, lot of documents, photoes, old books of Dante, history of his life and lots of other interesting stuffs here to see! With a competent guide as we had it's worth a visit!

This museum/house is pretty interesting. My husband is reading "Inferno" so was keen to go. It was pretty cool to see the house, and it was well set up. However most of it is not really about Dante- more about the history of Florence at the time (the main families, how people lived etc.) Seeing the death mask was cool... More
