What To Expect
Founded in 1784, the Accademia museum was originally part of an art school, showcasing art to inspire the students of the neighboring Accademia di Belle Arti.
Now open to the public, it today houses some of the Renaissance’s greatest masterpieces, including Michelangelo’s sculpture 'David.' Enter the Hall of the Colossus (Sala dell'Anticolosso), and admire the centerpiece; 'The Rape of the Sabines,' a 1582 sculpture by Giambologna, together with works by Filippo Lippi and del Sarto.
Then, roam around the two floors, seeing the rich wood paintings in the Florentine Gothic room, or the musical instruments exhibition. Visit the Gallery of the Prisoners (Galleria dei Prigioni) to view its unfinished sculptures by Michelangelo, including the Prisoners (Prigioni); four incomplete marble statues each depicting a struggling captive.
At the end of the gallery, stop to take in the star attraction: Michelangelo’s 17-foot (5.17-meter) 'David.' Admire the contours of the marble figure’s muscles and veins, completed, almost unbelievably, when Michelangelo was in his twenties.
Leave the Accademia when you wish, bringing your experience to a close.
