I probably should have read more on what was in this museum before we came. We were staying between Santa Croce Church and this museum, so it was not out of the way at all. The house was built by Michelangelo's nephew after he died. It is thought that Michelangelo lived on this property when he was a teen. In it are several early works of Michelangelo's and two portraits of him. I had moped that it would include more on how he worked, how he sculpted some of his major works - things like that. For that reason I was disappointed. It is a quiet, not crowded place, even in the heaviest tourist season, so if you're a Michelangelo lover, then this would be a place for you to visit.
