Take a look at Michelangelo’s unfinished San Matteo, a sculpture that he was commissioned to create before he left Florence for Rome. His Prigioni is located nearby, so wander over and gaze at the four unfinished sculptures of prisoners or slaves that seem to be trying to escape from the blocks of marble that encase them.
Impressive as they are, the Accademia Gallery’s unfinished sculptures pale in comparison to the museum’s main crowd-drawer: Michelangelo’s statue of David. Stand and look at the 17-foot (5.17-meter) marble statue of the biblical hero, marveling at the level of detail that the young Michelangelo put into the famously nude warrior.
Adjacent to the statue are rooms containing paintings by other famous Renaissance artists like Botticelli and Filippino Lippi, as well as artists from both the Middle Ages and 17th-century. Amble through a room containing 19th-century plaster sculptures and visit the on-site Museum of Musical Instruments, where an intriguing collection of stringed instruments are exhibited.
How long you spend inside the gallery is up to you; many visitors find that two hours is sufficient.

This was a perfect option for us. We spent three hours viewing beautiful art rather than three hours standing in line waiting to view the art. Well worth the extra money!

You meet a representative outside the academia museum and are given the tickets. There was a queue still of around twenty minutes to enter the museum however if you did not have skip the line tickets the queue was four hours!! Michael Angelo David is well worth seeing.
