Booking tickets at San Marco Museum
On the Discover Florence site, I don't see a link to book tickets at the museum of San Marco. Do you have a link to do this? Thanks.

Across the entire website, there is a box right below the main photo - the 3rd tab has a link for booking museum tickets, including San Marco.
You can also do so over the phone +39-055-294-883 since you don't pay ahead of time for the tickets.
San Marco is not a super busy museum so most of the time you can walk up and buy tickets on the spot. You don't need to book ahead for a group of 15 people, there is no group discount in any case. Buying on the spot you won't have to pay the extra 3 euro fee for prebooking ;-)

Check "Open" Hours
We were there in mid-summer during high tourist season and did not encounter any line when we went. We were able to walk right up and purchase tickets. It was not crowded once inside; a very pleasant experience...
I advise that you make certain to check the hours they are open. We tried to visit three times but twice found the doors closed. We finally figured it out on the third try...

You can find the hours here:
Make note that the church itself is free entry but is often closed, the museum is to the right of the church and is in the convent area.
