We stood in line for a very long time. We were very bored and ran out of activities. We left without seeing the David. We could not afford a tour to skip the line. We were very poor and very sad:(

Queues....but worth seeing. Even with reserved tickets you will queue! But it's so worth it, it's big, grand and beautifully sculpted. I was suitably impressed.

Wow! The David statue is amazing - one of the highlights (among many) of my trip. A must see, make sure to make a reservation with the museum in advance.

Had no idea previously of the height of this statue. Amazing sculpture. The Academie is well worthwhile. Suggest you pre-book as waiting times are long otherwise. It would not be enjoyable to stand in long queues in the summer heat.

The Dorono is a very nice museum to visit.
David was incredible as well as many other statues.
Well worth the wait
