The area
Neighbourhood: Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.

So interesting
Feb 2020
I visited the Marino Marini Museum for the first time and ... It is free! It is very interesting and not far from the train station Firenze Santa Maria Novella - Do not forget to book your entry at the astonish Cappella Rucellai ... you cannot miss it!

Great Museum
Dec 2019
I really enjoyed this museum. There are 2 parts to this museum, the upstairs which are all modern sculptures - this area is free. Downstairs is a sound and sculpture experience that you need to pay for and totally worth it.

Lovely museum
Jun 2019 • Couples
If you like modern art, this is a really good museum to visit. It is located in a redesigned church - excellent transformation of the space. The art is mostly sculpture and some etchings, but we really liked the art we saw. Very helpful staff. The museum is quiet and cool, a nice relief from the bustle of the main venues in Florence.

A happy surprise
Sep 2017 • Friends
Stumbled across this museum almost by accident but wandered in and was pleasantly surprised. While the collection isn't huge there is enough to allow you to see a good spread of work while not being overwhelmed allowing you to appreciate the pieces. The sleepers and the crocodiles piece downstairs was eerily beautiful and worth the entry fee alone.

Ok if you like more modern art church itself is nice
Aug 2016 • Friends
This little known Museum of contemporary art by sculptor Marino Marini, is located In the Plaza San Pancrazio, inside the former old church of the same name. It’s pretty modern stuff as he only died 37yrs ago. Even though he was born in Pistoia, he studied art in Florence and is considered one of the citys leading 20th century contemporary artists.

TIP: the museum is closed during August.

Disappointing
Feb 2017 • Couples
Art is a very personal thing: if you do appreciate the art of Marino Marini then you would probably want to rate this more highly. Little can be seen inside of what the guide book says is "one of the oldest churches in Florence". Structural steel and concrete at various levels linked by walkways and staircases breaks up what must have been a very imposing interior at one time.

Really very interesting, very different from most of Florence
Nov 2016 • Couples
Located in an old church, this exhibit of Marino Marini's sculptures and paintings and drawings shows 50 plus years of active artistic talent at work. The setting of the church really offsets the layout of the statues very uniquely. The lighting adds to the effect along with the modern use of wood, alleys, stairs and windows. A very interesting visit, 6 euro entry fee is well worth it. To the side is part of the original church with a mausoleum well worth seeing that also has a very interesting video explaining how it was built.

Bronze statues from early 20th century
Sep 2016 • Solo
This was the first museum I can across that did not have long queues to enter. It's really nothing special unless you are into weathered and damaged bronze statues from the early twentieth century. Entry is €6 which for what it is I thought was expensive.

Sculptures in a peaceful former church
Jul 2016 • Friends
My friend and I got up early to see the famous David. We purchased the Firenze card primarily for that and I am glad we did because now we can randomly find gems like Museo Marino Marini. I have learned I prefer sculpture to dark religious paintings so this open, well lit, former church was a welcome place to find ourselves. I like the artist's work and there were bonus exhibitions inside that made me smile - shoes in jars,neon signs, air raid sirens, football memories and cool grey stone.
