They produced popes, princes and two queens of France but are best known for their patronage of the arts for over 300 years. The exhibition displays up to 150 paintings and artefacts from the Medici collections, such as Botticelli's Adoration of the Magi and The Three Graces by Rubens. Also included is an Apollo-David sculpture by Michelangelo, a Cellini bronze and several Ancient Roman statues. Instruments from the world of science include a 13th-century Arab astrolabe in gilded copper, and a 17th-century German sundial carved from ivory.
