While there are many amazing museums to visit in Florence, this is a small museum that has an impressive amount of sculpture by Donatello, Michelangelo, and many other masters. It is less crowded than the Uffizi and well worth it if you enjoy sculpture. Many of the sculptures are placed towards the center of the rooms so one can walk around them and observe the works from all angles. The building itself is quite beautiful and it is very nice to get some shade walking around in the courtyard area. I would highly recommend this museum!

Enter the courtyard to see some of the most famous works by sculptors in Florence! It was not busy with tourists so we were able to explore at our own pace. The museum and the building itself is amazing.

Wonderful little museum! We approached in a rainstorm and the entrance was difficult to find, but once we found it we were in our own medieval courtyard with stunning sculpture. Cool setting to see some amazing art and culture.

Unlike some of the other higher status museums and galleries in Florence the Bargello is fairly quite, with no queue when we visited. However it's vast collection comfortably holds its own amongst those others, whilst allowing you to study it thoroughly without the crowds you find elsewhere. This collection includes works of Michelangelo and his pupils, as well many paintings, artefacts, pottery, relics, and an impressive room of renaissance weapons and armour that I found particularly appealing and unique to this museum.

We got in on the reduced ticket because of our lower age, but even at full price there is so much to see and read about within the walls of this impressive building that it is well worth a lengthy visit.

I finally get the time to get inside, and what a place. The sculpture section on the ground floor is worth the entry on its own, then comes a wonderfully old fashioned museum of collectors item in a fascinating building. Pity you cannot get up the tower.
