Definitely go if only to see David. He's magnificent. The other "unfinished" sculptures were fascinating, as well. Honestly the rest of the museum is something of a let-down.

Just to see the birth of Venus is a must!...but there is so much more - recommended for all the family so sneak back when the girls are shopping for handbags!

David was the main attraction, and he did not disappoint! This marble statue is exquisite and has so many real life details. You must see!

Seemed like 90% of visitors, including us, had come to see "David" and it's worth it. We were in Florence for 3 days and went to lots of museums/attractions. We bought the Firenze card on line before arrival, well worth it if your going to...More

There is so much to see in this wonderful gallery but, of course, Michaelangelo's David is the highlight. You will find it horrendously crowded and it's best to book ahead or to see it with a guided tour.

Get there an hour before it opens and still expect to line up for 45 minutes to buy entry tickets. David is totally worth it. The crowds are massive and there is very little to see in the galleria but again, David is worth it.

Words cannot cover the glory and beauty of the art pieces gathered in this place. The Centerpiece is Michaelangelo's David that people wandering around and study him from different views and relate them to holly books.

The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a
stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence,
surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking
students provides the tranquil surroundings for the
elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read
the daily newspaper. Home to several universities,
including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one
of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A

I did not use a tour service. I got a Firenze Card. Not knowing any better, and having been told I should do so, I also reserved a spot/time online. This was a waste of money. When I showed up for my time at the ticket... More

You can buy tickets the day before, you don't need to book very far in advance. I think there's probably a queue no matter when you come.
