This museum is very small, but it is a must for art lovers. It contains pictures taken by the most famous photographers of the XIX and XX centuries. The temporary exhibitions are also usually very fascinating. Good discounts at the bookstore on their finely printed books.

As per the last review, this museum is now closed. Reception staff at the art museum spoke as if there were no plans to resurrect the museum as a distinct entity. Shame.

This was once a really wonderful museum of photography that had a great collection and showed some very interesting contemporary photography. Its sadly closed as of June 2014 and the museum has been taken over my the Museo Cento, dedicated to contemporary Italian art in general. One of the staff told me there was a plan, in the future (in Italy a time frame is hard to pin down) there will be some photo but for now, no. A sad decision on the part of the Italian art community.

This is a historical exhibit/museum of photography, If your looking just to see pretty pictures, forget it. But, if you have a true interest in photography and it's history, it's pretty cool. Certainly worth the admission. Strangely enough, the thing that I liked to most was the part with the photo albums...

A brilliant and engaging small museum, perfect if you've had enough of churches and more 'historical' sights.

It is a bit difficult to find if you don't know exactly where it is. Difficult to find only by the address. They have an excellent collection of prints. It is so nice to see the original prints of some of master of photography from the old days.

They have an exhibition area as well. The exhibition that was there when we visited was disgusting but you can go through it without taking too much notice.

A must see for photographers. Others can still enjoy it.

Absolutely loved it here! The exhibition currently on (until may) was certainly curious and interesting. There are some fantastic photographs here, some going way back to 1850s. They also had the very famous Robert Capa image 'death of a fallen soldier', as well as some images by Henri Cartier-Bresson and many other famous photojournalists. Very inspiring and interesting if you have an interest in photography/ photojournalism.

If you love and appreciate photography, you will love this museum. It is comprehensive, showing a good slice of the history of photography from the 1850s to present. It also features a room full of old cameras.

With so many museums, churches and galleries filled with art in Florence, it's easy to overlook this museum. It is located near Santa Maria Novella Church. And it is a truly remarkable collection. Examples of the history and evolution of photography are beautifully displayed. The lighting is lovely. There are old cameras displayed, famous photographs, photo albums, and rotating special exhibit. We were so happy to stumble upon this gem in Florence. One of the highlights of our trip.
