Small museum, reflected in the lower (€8) entry price. Only really worth it to see the original David. You can see his sling better as you can get close.

Great gallery, not too large. The David really does live up to its reputation and is a must for visitors to Florence.

This museum is wonderful! The fact that you can see the actual "David" statue is awesome! There are many other wonderful art pieces here as well. This is a must-visit!

A lot of great things to see in the gallery but the prize statue is David. Great art. A must see for all.

David, that is all! I do recommend purchasing skip the line tickets in advance. Don't wait until the day before to purchase either. We waited almost three hours to get in as skip the line people were filing in constantly.

David is the star of the show. We enjoyed the music museum as well. Certainly worth the effort, an by all means, get the 'skip the line' tour.

Alla, our guide, was fabulous. And Michalangelo's David is spectacular. The museum's women's WC was atrocious. Worst I have ever experienced. I can only imagine the mens. Go at your own risk.

Our concierge order skip the line tickets for us so we were able to walk straight in but even then the gallery was very busy. There are benches to sit on if one wishes to reflect on a painting or statue but the main attraction...More

You cannot miss this if you visit Florence! Michelangelo’s David is breathtakingly beautiful! To see his unfinished works or rather ‘slaves’ emerging from the stone is something else, they do actually look as though they are hidden in there and are being pulled out.

To see David with my own eyes was a wonderful experience. To think that this piece of art was carved from one solid block of marble 500 years ago is mind blowing. It’s a small museum and won’t take up too much of your time...More

San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a
stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence,
surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking
students provides the tranquil surroundings for the
elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read
the daily newspaper. Home to several universities,
including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one
of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A

I would suggest that you look at options on Viator. Or be in the queue very early.

It seemed pretty accessible for people with disabilities and there were lines but the jump the line tickets worked very well for us hope that helps.
