Both museums will be open from 8:15am to 6:50pm on Monday.

If you wish to visit other museums on Monday, head to the Boboli Gardens which will remain open until 7:30pm.

On Ferragosto (Tuesday, August 15), you can head to the Uffizi during the evening as they hold their summer longer opening for #UffiziLive cultural festival or to the Boboli Gardens or to the museums of the Pitti Palace.
