Overview

Here, in 1475, Michelangelo was born. His father, Ludovico di Buonarroto Simoni, was one of the governors who were sent from the Republic of Florence, every six months, to Caprese. After the birth certificate of Michelangelo showed his birth to be in Caprese, in 1875 the Museum was founded inside the ancient Palazzo del Podestà, the house where he was born.

This is Michelangelo's place of birth. Good welcome and explanation of the site in English by the person at reception, we were then left alone to wander. It's good to visit, the views are fantastic, but.... there's not really a whole lot there. I thought...More

Nice for an hour to walk around and see the house and sculptures. The scenery is great and it is nice to visit the beautiful house but do not expect to see real art, just some mockups.

We visited the Museo Michelangiolesco years ago and still recall it with joy. Who knew that such an interesting museum existed in such a small town, incidental birthplace of a great Renaissance artist. But the sculpture garden, overlooking the next valley, is the best part....More

This is an atmospheric spot, interesting enough to wander round, but don't expect too much from the Michelangelo connection. There is a display of furniture contemporary with the artist and a collection of small pieces of sculpture that show the master's influence. When we were...More
