Special opening for Easter Monday


Lots of occasions to visit the museum over the upcoming holidays, starting with Easter. The Accademia Gallery will be open this Sunday, March 31 with regular hours (open from 8.15am to 6.50pm, last entrance at 6.20pm) and will have a special opening on Monday, April 1st (same hours).

The following Sunday, April 7th, will be the first Sunday of the month and as such, entrance will be free for everyone. You cannot book tickets ahead of time for those Sundays, but the line generally moves quickly.

Up until April 14th, you will also be able to visit the temporary exhibition dedicated to Pier Francesco Foschi (1502-15687), Florentine painter. The exhibition is an opportunity to admire long forgotten works and to compare his work with works by painters such as Andrea del Sarto. There are works on loan from the Rijksmuseum, Galleria Borghese, and Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza, among others, which allow some works to be shown together for the first time, such as the Pala della Madonna del Piano, which was separated and sold to different museums.

The museum will also be open on two other upcoming national holidays, April 25 and May 1. Entrance will also be free for everyone on the 25th of April, in celebration of the Day of Liberation.

To summarize, entrance will free only on April 7th and 25th.
