This is a very interesting site and I'm glad we went. But it is disappointing to get into the chapel to find that much of it is covered in scaffolding. However, I'd still recommend a visit.

This is worth a visit just to see Michelangelo's statues. You can really get up close to them. The chapel's roof is also beautiful. The line to get is not as long as that for the uffizi or the accademia

Good musem/chapel, but it could use a bit more info. Audioguide would likely be helpful but since we got there within an hour of closing, they didn't let us rent one.

It was a long time i wanted to visit the Cappelle Medicee and finally i saw this beautiful place. It was impressing, the Cappella, the secret rooms with reliques, the conference rooms. Worth it all the time spent there

More amazing views, statues and atmosphere. Had a wonderful time looking at the galleries, and the bonus room of sculpture.

This is the tomb of the Medicis. It is highly decorated with precious marbles and stones. There are Michelangelo statues. The audio tour helps to explain things but is overwhelming with architectural details.

We didn't get to see inside the building because unhelpful staff kept directing us to other doors, in the end we ended up so confused that we found ourselves at the wrong building.

The Medici's went to their graves collecting art. Here you will find more sculptures by Michelangelo. Take some time to visit, you won't be disappointed.
