About
Casa Buonarroti Firenze Museo e monumento, luogo della memoria e della celebrazione del genio di Michelangelo, e insieme fastoso apparato barocco ed esposizione delle ricche collezioni d’arte della famiglia, la Casa Buonarroti è una delle più singolari occasioni di visita tra le realtà museali fiorentine e offre, in primo luogo, l’emozione di ammirare due celebri rilievi marmorei, capolavori della prima giovinezza di Michelangelo, la Madonna della scala, testimonianza intensa dello studio appassionato di Donatello, e la Battaglia dei centauri, segno eloquente di un amore mai sopito per l’arte classica.

Worthwhile Small Museum Related to Michelangelo
Oct 2019
This museum has exhibits related to Michelangelo and other members of his family. This is the site where Michelangelo once lived but the building and the displays were greatly orchestrated by his nephew. The most interesting pieces on display are two early sculpture works by young Michelangelo: Madonna of the Steps and Battle of the Centaurs. There are drawings by Michelangelo and the rooms contain many pieces of the later art collection of his family. Very interesting and worthwhile, but if it is your first visit to Florence and you have limited time, I wouldn't consider visiting here to be a priority.

Interesting small museum
Oct 2019
This is not one of the big galleries in Florence, but well worth a visit to see all about Micheal Angelo

I was hoping for more on Michelangelo's life and how he created his sculptures and paintings
Jul 2019
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.

NOT A TOP PRIORITY
Jun 2019 • Family
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.

Worth going if you are in the area
Jul 2019 • Solo
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.

For MIchelangelo fans

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.

Disappointing but interesting
Feb 2019 • Couples
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.

Michelangelo’s home
Oct 2018 • Solo
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.

Important collection
Sep 2018 • Couples
The house was owned, but never inhabited, by the great artist and now is converted to the museum dedicated to his work. The collection includes few of his earliest works, but more importantly this is the huge archive of his drawings, letters and sketches. For me, it was very interesting visit, where I felt a bit of a history and master’s geniality.
