I came here 18 years ago and saw pretty much everything and was very impressed (5 stars for that visit). My second, long overdue visit was made during the COVID crisis, so a bit hard to judge fairly. The problem was the whole Graeco-Roman floor was closed, which meant I didn’t get to see the Francoise Vase, or the Minerva and Idolino bronzes. The monumental garden and courtyard were also closed, so basically half the museum. Funny thing though, the entrance ticket was the same price. Come on guys, get your act together! My advice, wait till the COVID crisis is over and hope they have reopened the rest of the museum.

On 2 floors, 3 usually but it was closed so we only saw the Egyptian and Italian history section. A diversion away from the Medici family and renaissance art but nothing spectacular or that I haven’t seen before in other archaeology museums. We visited as it was part of the ufizi passport ticket, I am not sure I would pay the entrance fee to visit if not especially as a whole floor of the museum wasn’t accessible.

After five days of Renaissance Art and Churches I was looking for something different. I heard this museum had an Egyptian exhibit as part of their collection, so I decided to go. First of all, the museum itself was once the home of a Medici and dates back to 1620. There is a short timeline video which gives a nice history of the building over the centuries. As for the collections...Fantastic! One entire exhibit focused on Etruscan tombs which was fascinating, not to mention all of the items collected from these tombs. The Medici-Lorraine gems and seals exhibit contains 34 wonderfully displayed cases - some of the most impressive cameos I’ve ever seen. The coin collection is immense. There is a section devoted entirely to funerary urns and sarcophagi which is the largest single collection I’ve ever seen. The Greco/Roman section is chock full of pottery, sculptures and art - be sure to see the Francois Vase! As for the Egyptian exhibit...I spent a few weeks in Egypt last year and I must say I was very impressed with the size of the collection as well as the accompanying informative descriptions. I spent almost three hours here and could have spent even more time. The museum exhibits flowed nicely with excellent descriptions. Arrows throughout the museum show you where to go/continue to the next exhibit. Bathrooms are located on every floor. Crowds are nonexistent. Aside from one small school group, I only encountered a handful of other visitors. The 8 euro admission fee is a small price to pay for such a wonderful museum. Note: the courtyard garden is only open on the weekend.

The museum is across the street from the Ospedale degli Innocenti. So when you are in the area, stop by and take a look at the Egyptian mummies, the famous chimera, an Egyptian war chariot and much much more. Fun place to visit. Especially if you and your kids just visited the Innocenti museum. Kids will love this museum.

You will walk through history in this gem of a museum. Very, very well laid out with room after room of historical artifacts as well as art. I spent so much time in here, completely overwhelmed with the amount of things to see. A definite must-see in Florence!
