We were walking around Florence seeing the many interesting places. We decided to check out this museum. It covers several floors and we ended up staying two hours. It is very well done and is certainly worth a visit.
A very well laid out museum focusing not only on Galileo but also the development of science, geography and medicine. The exhibits are excellent and the free app that you can download and help you move around the museum (with free wifi) is great and...More
It was our last day and we fancied something different. I had read the reviews and thought we might enjoy this. How wrong was I. My husband and I don’t have any scientific background, we’re both accountants, but unfortunately this was too heavy going and...More
Wow! A stunning collection of works form handcrafted globes to scientific instrumentation to telescopes and models of the human body - we did not have enough time there but even with what we had we were entranced by the scope of what was on offer...More
Excellent museum that needs more than the hour we gave it. Interactive elements were superb and very interesting.
Lots of information on the great range of scientific research and exploration supported by the Medici and some key artefacts from Galileo’s life. Would have been interesting...More

We arrived just before opening time of 9.30 and went straight in. Great to visit without a crowd. Amazing displays and models including Galileos telescope. Lots of astrolabes,globes,ancient maps and hand blown glass. We spent around 2 hours here.
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the
Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
