Lovely palazzo. They have interesting and famous works of Donatello, Michelangelo and Della Robbia. The chapel where the prisoners went before their execution was very interesting. Not a very popular place for tourists so nice and quiet to visit.

The building alone is worth the entrance fee (Only 4 euro). It's medieval building was a perfect backdrop to the Donatello and other renaissance works. I was sad because the 2nd floor was closed, so I only saw about 4 rooms of art. Either way, it was an enjoyable 40 minutes to walk through. The museum is quite small.

The amount of brilliant Renaissance art in this building is astounding. It's such a beautiful building with room upon room of such a wonderful collection. You could easily spend a day here. It's also a great place for artists to do some sketches of the various sculptures in the courtyard.

We were in Florence for 14 nights, so we had plenty of time to see less popular attractions. We did this so we could do things like visit this museum, which was definitely worthwhile. The architecture of the building is somewhat unexpected; a little different from other places we visited in Florence. The collection of sculptures is quite significant. There are many less than found at the Uffizi, however, several are of historical significance, which are meaningful for me to see in person. There are two sculptures of David, by Donatello, the earlier one in which David is clothed, the later, famous one in which he is nude. There is also the famous David, by Verrocchio, along with some excellent works by various other artists, including Michelangelo. As it is a less popular attraction we found it to be much more leisurely than the Uffizi or Accademia; hardly a crowd, so the level of distraction when viewing artworks was minimal. Very enjoyable.

Full of fantastic artwork and sculptures by masters of the craft for a third of the cost of the accademia.
