  • One of the guides in Uffizi recommended this museum after I mentioned that I really liked the sculptures, and I'm really glad I went. This museum really feels like a hidden gem since there was absolutely no line when I entered and the exhibits were very well organized. There are no student discounts though. There were rooms dedicated to just ivory carvings, coins, ceramics, and armory. I like that there are both outdoor and indoor areas and plenty of seats available for when your legs get tired.
  • I almost didn’t go here and I’m so glad I did. It’s just a wonderful collection of a variety of sculpture and decorative arts. It was quiet when I went and a peaceful contrast to other busy museums.
