“Simply Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Even though the rest of the Galleria Accademia could be skipped, it's worth standing in line just to see David - he really is an amazing sight.

“AMAZING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

We viewed David just as the Gallery opened, having pre-booked tickets on line. We saw the statue from the end of the gallery with very few people in front, and it was amazing. This is the reason I wanted to visit Florence, and I was not disappointed.

“Mediocre museum, but awe inspiring David”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

Yes, David is quite awesome, i must admit. But the rest of the museum does not sufficiently help the layperson appreciate all this religious art-- and there's a lot if it.

“Bigger than I ever imagined.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Well, don't expect to see much more than David, the rest of the museum is full of plaster casts from other statues and some other irrelevant stuff.
