Museum

It is one of the most popular museums in the world because it displays the Michelangelo's renowned David and his four Slaves, once in the Buontalenti Grotto inside the Boboli Garden.

History

The Gallery was founded by the Grand Duke Pietro Leopoldo of Lorraine as an educational art collection destined to the students at the Academy of Fine Arts. After rearrangements and 19th century acquisitions, it has become a celebrated museum dedicated to Michelangelo.
Along with Michelangelo's scupltures, the Gallery shows significant works testifying the development of Florentine art from 13th century up to 19th century.
The Gallery is housed in the 14th century rooms once belonging to the old Hospital of St. Matthew and the old convent of St. Niccolò of Cafaggio, renovated in the late 18th century to house the Gallery. In 1882 the "Tribuna" hall was built in order to display Michelangelo's David.

Collections

The earliest collection was enlarged with new works coming from Florentine churches and monasteries, after the suppressions of the religious orders in 18th and 19th century. In 1873 Michelangelo's David was moved inside, followed in 1909 by the four "Slaves" (or Prisoners) and St. Matthew.

Along with the famous works by Michelangelo, the collection includes also Florentine paintings from 13th century up to 16th century, original plaster models by Lorenzo Bartolini and Luigi Pampaloni, and a group of Russian icons. A new section dedicated to old musical instruments, once belonged to the Medici and the Lorraine families, was opened in 2001.

It is a smaller exhibit and quicker to get through than the Ufizzi. This is both a pro and con. Unless you have studied art history the only main allure is the statue of David. But nonetheless it's still amazing!

I hummed and haed about visiting the Accademia - I felt a bit galleried out after the Uffizi. But Wow! What an experience. The way David is positioned makes one realise just how perfect he is: raised on a plinth under a cupola of ribbed glass, everyone can see his magnificence from every angle, no matter how crowded the hall...

Smaller museum but nice. Statue of David is the main attraction. Nice that he is on a large pedestal so everyone can see even if crowded. Get ticket ahead online to avoid standing in hot sun in a long line. Even in May it was too hot to stand longer than the 30 min we waited

Most guests visiting the Accademia are there to see the "David." However, the other sculpture on display is also impressive and worth checking out. This is my second time visiting this museum in the past five years and nothing has changed. I strongly encourage purchasing the Firenze Pass which allows you to skip the long lines.

We missed this on our first trip to Florence, and vowed to make certain to tour the gallery upon returning. Yes, this is a tourist mecca, but there is a reason for that! You are surrounded by beauty and artistry that defies imagination on every turn through the museum, culminating with standing before "The David." Go, stay, savor, and remember!

David steals the show here in this very small museum. Literally. This statue is in the main salon and there are a couple other small galleries, but David is what you're coming to see and David will occupy most of your time here. Not that the other things aren't worth seeing - there is a room filled with other pieces...

OK so there's a copy of Michelangelo's David in Piazza della Signora but somehow nothing quite beats the sight of the real thing and for that you need to visit the Academia. The best trick, if you're not on a tour to beat the queues, is to get there early. At 9am the loine isn't too bad...by 10 you may...

We had precious little time in Florence so instead of standing in lines for hours we booked a tour that included front-of-the-line tickets. It was worth the price to breeze right in and spend our day enjoying these amazing masterpieces for the ages, and especially the 14-foot-tall David, a monument to the incredible talent of Michelangelo. While David is the...

To see David is one of those wow moments but there are also unfinished Michelangelo figures on the way in and easy to miss. Stop and pause at these as it shows how Michelangelo would work the marble 'releasing the figure' from the marble. I think it is best to go with a small art based tour group who will...

This gallery is Michaelangos David. It is the main attraction and boy does it attract. Without seeing it in the flesh you can't understand its magnitude. From every angle, it is pure perfection, from his toenails to the vein in his neck. Yes there is other art in the gallery which is stunning but most people gaze in awe of...
