Michelangelo never lived here. It was built after his death on a site where he supposedly lived as a teenager. There are some of his early works but not worth a planned visit.

This was a small but great museum! They have some nice pieces by Michelangelo and some interesting exhibitions focusing on how he influenced later artists. Most all of the wall text/labels were in Italian (with only a few in English). You can easily get through the entire thing (and spend time appreciating some great pieces) in less than an hour. It’s worth going if you are visiting Florence for the art! I loved it because I’m in art history and also prefer smaller museums. But if you aren’t an art lover - you will be disappointed.

This is a house built to commemorate Michelangelo, and designed and decorated by his great nephew. There are some important early sculptures by Michelangelo here, as well as some interesting drawings. On the day we were there in March, the museum felt absolutely abandoned, with no one there except two guards and us. Certainly there will be no line when you visit. If you are a big fan of Michelangelo and you haven't had enough of him with the exhibits in the Uffizi, the Bargello and the Accademia, then maybe this is for you too. Some of the rooms are beautifully decorated.

On a very cold day, we were glad to find some real warmth here after visiting Santa Croce. Once inside we really enjoyed the two sculptures on display; early works that show Michelangelo's emerging mastery. After that there was not that much of real interest: a few trial pieces and some faint sketches along with odd bits and pieces. The reception room was not at all to our taste and the video loop was incomprehensible.

A short distance from Santa Croce but away from the crowd on the plaza, Casa Buonarroti is a haven of peace. Sleepy guards barely watch while you walk through the rooms. The frescoes and ceilings are lovely as can be expected. A pleasurable visit.
