The main halls offers to its visitors works by notorious Italian artists such as Domenico Ghirlandaio, Sandro Botticelli, Allessando Allori, Pontormo, Andrea del Sarto, and Orcagna, to name just a few.

The Gallery is also famous for its sculptures made by the great Renaissance artist, Michelangelo. His Prisoners, his St. Matthew and (above all), the stunning statue of David within the Tribune are what first draw most of the visitors the museum welcomes every year.

Lastly, if you are a music lover, don’t miss the Musical Instrument Museum. Located in the museum wing, you will find forty ancient instruments belonging to the Luigi Cherubini Conservatory. In the past, music played a primary role in the official celebrations of the Medicean Court.
