What a welcome respite from all the Renaissance art! Having never even heard of Marini, we had no idea what to expect other than "modern." He turns out to be quite eclectic, with dozens of paintings, sculptures and drawings to see. For me, the building itself is the more memorable experience -- worth a visit even if you're not a...

The visit to this gallery turned out to be one of our most memorable of our trip to Florence. My husband is an architect and knew of Marinis works. The renovated space was beautifully executed with soft light, parchment walls, European oak seating and stairs and sculptures displayed in niches and wall openings. The sculptures were moving. I could feel... More

Went to look at the work. Three people stared at us and threw our change back at us when we paid for our tickets. There is no air conditioning, which is probably bad for the paintings and works on paper even if many are reproductions. One woman followed us around as if we were going to try to steal one... More

Everything is amazing about this museum! The work of Marino Marini is wonderful to keep looking at and keep discovering new details and feelings. The building is a masterpiece of architecture, the old church is perfectly reworked for Marini's work, and the temporary exhibition very beautiful (ends today :-( ). One of Firenze's hidden treasures!

Both Marini's art and the architectonic recyclig of an old Church are worth a visit. strenge enough we were nearly the only visitors, Even with the surrounding streets full of tourists.

A marvellous experience. Expressive sculptures of man and horse placed in an old church. We visit this museum every time we go to Florence

Have walked by this museum countless times but never entered. Having been to most Florence attractions over the years decided it was time to hit a few we haven't tried. The outside doesn't look like much but it is a great museum space inside. I have never been a fan of Marini's paintings and prefer his sculpture and even prints... More

Quiet and well located, I think this three-storey museum shouldn't be missed. I was left so fascinated by Marini's extraordinary, necessary, almost inevitable evolution from his figurative years (1930's) to his later abstract period (1950/60's) that after just four days I'll be back for another visit tomorrow. P.S. The ticket price is a mere 4 euros, and if you visit... More

A delight, seek this out. A quiet little museum containing three floors of Marino Marini's work sculpture, drawings and paintings. The museum is modern, light and works perfectly. A real joy.

I have taken my English language students to visit this exceptional museum and to talk about contemporary art in the center of Florence
