There was hardly any line when we arrived and got right in later in the afternoon. We went there mostly to see Michaelangelo's David. The best thing about it is that we could view the statute up close, unlike the Pieta at St Peter's Basilica. It's really magnificient to be able to see the details and be dwarfed by its size. There's a good number of admirers but it's a manageable crowd so that we felt that we could take our time and enjoy viewing David for as long as we liked (a big plus as compared to the fiasco at the Sistene Chapel). For some reason, photography was allowed in other parts of the museum but there's a guard in the David chamber reminding people not to take photographs. Doesn't make sense but not sure how successful she was in preventing people from photographing the statute. Be aware that you have to pay the extra charge for the special exhibit over and above the regular ticket price even if you're not interested in seeing it.
