We tried to enter as the building looked nice and I wanted to just peek inside and perhaps escape some heat. We tried and tried to go inside but couldn’t figure it out. I don’t think it is even open anymore.
Don’t even bother going out of your way to visit this place unless you happen to be in the area and want to take a peek at the building. We had no idea what this place was but it was highlighted as a significant building...More
Went by on the bus tour and then went there on a Sunday not realizing it was a Sunday, and it was closed, but I must say the building is a spectacular sight. Best across the Arno if you want to get it all in.

Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night. Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the Central National Library. As a hub for young people, the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated by songs and dances.

The Library is reserved for scholars, like most of the National Libraries in the world. If you want to visit the National Library of Florence, you have to reserve the tour (info on the web site of the Library)
