Disappointing. Many of the exhibits were not labelled. The guide leaflets, both in Italian and other languages, were missing from the trays where they were clearly supposed to be.
Well worth the visit, great collection (the only extant Egyptian war chariot outside Egypt in the world, 3000 years old), no lines, low price ! On top of all this it's located perfectly to visit one of Brunelleschi's earliest works (Ospedel) and in view of his great Duomo. Inexpensive coffee nearby (student district) and an excellent art supply store around... 更多
nothing special but it is worth going ...the egyptian section is very good....cheap entry [ 5 or 6 euro ] ....peaceful place away from Duomo madness...
Over the years, I've been to Florence many times, but this was my first visit to this museum—I was missing out big time. This museum has amazing exhibits, and I could easily have spent many more hours wandering inside. Not to be missed are the Chimaera of Arezzo (end of the 5th - early 4th cent. BC), bronze head of... 更多
Excellent collection of ancient artifacts. Has English descriptions as well as Italian (unlike some of the other museums that only had Italian). I personally am more interested in artifacts than paintings so this was the best museum in Florence for me. It did not disappoint and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was not to busy either.
This is quite an impressive collection despite other reviewers' points about lack of english translation. I'm actually glad they watch these artifacts like a hawk, with so many stories of vandalization. Get away from the crowds and see one of the most impressive collection of Etruscan art and artifacts.
We went specifically to visit the Etruscan collection, which was very well curated and displayed. Many small burial objects with photos and diagrams of the original tombs. Excellent large timeline display upstairs. Most notations included English. Spectacular not to be missed huge bronze chimera, the logo of the museum and one of the most exquisite objects you'll ever see. We... 更多
The collections of Egyptian and Etruscan pieces are amazing! I highly recommend and thoroughly enjoyed studying the pieces. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Plan on about 2-3 hours. Only certain sections had English language. I only wish the lighting were better, both for viewing and photographing.
Rude, sad staff, a pity as it is a great museum. I was the only visitor for most of my visit and can understand why, the staff because visits are an inconvenience to their sleep. Several simple rules, don't take a picture of the gardens out of the upper window and under no circumstances attempt to enter the garden or... 更多
this wasn't a must do for us but as we happened to be passing and had passes we thought it would be rude not to. I'm so glad we did though, this place had lots of interesting sections and some great exhibits to learn more about.
