Definitely a must see

You cannot visit Florence without seeing Michelangelo‘s David. It is simply a must and recommendable. You can reserve tickets online to skip the queue.

Expensive for what you see.
Aug 2021 • Family
A bit expensive for a family of 2 adults and 2 students under 25. We had problems with the student discount at the ticket collection point. Impolite agent wouldn't give it to us as my kids were non EU citizens even though they were studying in Ireland with valid ID.

Statue of David is very impressive but the rest of the display is small. The overly dramatic queuing outside to get in and airport style security a bit over the top in my opinion.

Home of Michelangelo's David

Small collection but of outstanding quality. The massive sculpture of David dominates the gallery. It is amazing.
Several incomplete sculptures by Michelangelo called the Prisoners are also remarkable. You can see the forms coming out of the rock.
Gallery also has many fine examples on religious art.

David
Aug 2021
Copies of the statue of David (froim David and goliath) can be found in different places in the city of Firenze. However, I was not prepared for the magnificence of the real thing. Thiis statue of over 5 meters ((i.e; over 16 feet) is increible. the anatomical elements of e.g. leg muscles and abdominals (I wish I had those) and the finish of the statue is remarcable. Knowing that this statue has stood for years in the open open square, is close to a major fellony.
The venu with tthe non-finished pieces in addition to the 'David' makes this a museum worthwile. The unfinished peices give worth to the saying that 'David' has been inside the huge block of marble from the start. it only neede a geniius to take away the peices that wer too much.

The David
Jul 2021
We hired a tour guide for our visit here (totally not necessary) and really wished we hadn't as it was a sprint to the David missing a lot of worthwhile exhibits. It was not crowded as we visited the first of July. All of the proper precautions are being taken for prevention. Security taking temps outside before entry and all bags/backpacks are scanned. Masks are mandated but the museum was cook and so not a bother to wear. The David is an incredible masterpiece! Inconceivable that it was made with hammer and chisel. Worth the trip alone just to see, but the gallery offers much more. Plan at least 3 hours!

Plan around the Gallerie
Aug 2021 • Couples
Before purchasing tickets on their website, be warned they will not refund your tickets or reschedule your time slot. I started out planning our trip based on a walking tour, not realizing that other tourist attractions we want to see have limited schedules. I still wanted to give them my $s but they absolutely refuse to change the time slot on my ticket forcing me to miss out on one of the major attractions in the city. Admittedly it's poor planning on my part but I feel that it's poor customer service on theirs.

David

The museum isn’t huge but you should go here and see the sculpture of David. It is larger than life and so intricate. One of the most famous sculptures ever created.
