Casa Buonarroti is a museum in Florence, Italy. The building was a property owned by the sculptor Michelangelo, which he left to his nephew, Leonardo Buonarroti. The house was converted into a museum dedicated to the artist by his great nephew, Michelangelo Buonarroti the Younger. Its collections include two of Michelangelo's earliest sculptures, the Madonna of the Stairs and the Battle of the Centaurs. A ten-thousand book library includes the family's archive and some of Michaelangelo's letters and drawings. The Galleria is decorated with paintings commissioned by Buonarroti the Younger and created by Artemisia Gentileschi and other early seventeenth-century Italian artists.

This is a nice little museum in the family home of Michelangelo. It has many works of art of his as well as art collected by his family. It is located not too far away from the Basilica di Santa Croce and isn't crowded at all. In fact, when I visited my partner and I were the only people inside. The admission price isn't too high so definitely worth a visit if your in the area.
It's a decent museum. Kind of small but there are two works by Michaelangelo that worth seeing. If you have a particular fondness for Michaelangelo (and you should) you should try to visit this museum. It's pretty nice and there are no crowds. Otherwise feel free to skip it. This is not a must-see.
Nice to see where Michelangelo lived and his earliest works. No lines here.
Three stars for the two original Michelangelo sculptures, but the staff weren't very polite or helpful. So if you are a real fan of Michelangelo and want to see everything he did, then go, but don't expect great service
What a little gem! Absolutely loved this place. I had it all to myself.
