Why locals love it
This is Florence's largest temporary exhibition space and one of the most reliable venues for finding something fresh and exciting to see in town. Also, the cool courtyard is an awesome place to enjoy a cocktail before checking out what's on!
Why you should visit it
The temporary shows are always stunningly well-curated and worth your while. Palazzo Strozzi places a lot of emphasis on narratives, breaking down exhibitions to make them accessible to the average visitor; this makes it a really family-friendly place, too. You'll be encouraged to think critically and creatively about what you're seeing.
The courtyard has extended hours on Thursday evenings (until 11 pm) which sometimes means fun events or live music! Check the website for a calendar.
