We did not go inside as we passed it by on our way to the church of Sanata Croce but the monumental building looks impressive.

Just walked past this place and took a peak inside. Not worth visiting but the building is huge and great example of Florence architecture.

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.

Walked all the way here only to be told that we could not enter unless we were students. Asked if being a university student from Singapore counts but the counter staff said no. What a bummer. So much for "knowledge is for all" and Florence...More

We were told by two reliable sources, the main tourist office of Florence and a certified tour guide that we could go into the Bibioteca to see the Grande Salone, or main reading room. We did not want to walk all the way over there...More

Santa Croce
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)
