Directions to Palazzo Vecchio Family Museum
During the 16th century the young ducal couple who governed Florence, Cosimo I de’ Medici and his wife Eleonora of Toledo, moved in to this palace, which had been built between the late 13th century and the early 14th century to accommodate the various governing bodies of the city.
From 1540 until his death in 1574, Cosimo I de’ Medici never ceased building inside the walls of his sumptuous new palace, which is now the Palazzo Vecchio Museum.
In 2000 Palazzo Vecchio Family Museum was set up in Cosimo I’s palace, with the creation of the following facilities:
– 2 small Museum Theatres: the Story-Telling Room for younger visitors (from 3 years old) and the other known as Renaissance Civilization in Florence for older visitors (from 8 to 88 years old);
– a large Multimedia Room;
– a studio set aside for painting activities.
