Sunday at the Museum
The municipality of Florence decided that, starting from January 2015, and following a national decree, to open national and city museums to everybody for free on the first Sunday of the month. You cannot miss this opportunity, if you are in Florence. You can see all the beautiful works of art in our museums without paying anything.
The civic museums open and free on the first Sunday are the Museum of Palazzo Vecchio, the Museum Novecento, the Museum Stefano Bardini, the Brancacci’s Chapel, the Salvatore Romano’s Foundation, the Museum of S. Maria Novella, the Forte Belvedere, the archeological excavation of Palazzo Vecchio and finally the Arnolfo’s Tower.
The Bargello museum, the Circle of Andrea del Sarto, the Uffizi gallery, the gallery of the Academy of Florence, the Palatina gallery and the royal apartments, the Boboli garden, the National Archeological Museum and the Medici Chapels are, instead, some of the national museums which are open and free thanks to the decree. For a complete list of all national museums in Tuscany, please visit the site of Beni Culturali (Italian only).

Bronzi del mondo ellenistico and Anche le sculture muoiono, guided tours are organised but they are free only for citizens born in Florence and residents. For these tours the booking is necessary. The admission has a fee for everybody, citizens and residents included.
