Among the works of art safeguarded in the museum: the Cortile di Michelozzo; Michelangelo’s celebrated Victory in the Salone dei Cinquecento; Donatello’s Judith in the Sala dei Gigli; the private rooms of the Medici court and among these the marvellous Cappella di Eleonora, the chapel with paintings by Agnolo Bronzino.

“Quite extraordinary”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

The decoration of this palace / museum is quite extraordinary. Keep an eye on the ceilings, and the furniture decorated with pietra dura. The one room, however, I would recommend most highly, is that of the small studio of Francesco I - superbly ornate and beautiful - simply stunning.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

This is an amazing place that seems to go on and on - especially when your feet are tired (which they always seemed to be in Florence! So many sights to see, so much walking to be done) The queues were not bad later in the day. Well worth a visit.

“Florence Attraction”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

The Museo di Palazzo displays the known works o famous painters and well known artists all over the world. One of the paintings that I was familiar with was the Victory in the Salone dei Cinquecento by Michelangelo. I also got to appreciate for the first time was the chapel with paintings by Agnolo Bronzino. For all those who want to go out and explore art, never miss the museum in Florence.

“Palzze Vecchio”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Went by several times and finally decided to go in. Awesome. You need to read about each room and the story of the ceilings and wall paintings. One regret is that we did not know about the 'secret passage' tour until it was too late to book. Plan about 3 hours.
