This museum was disappointing. I expected a museum representing S.Ferragamo and his amazing shoes, instead it was a museum about the building and surrounds (Palazzo Spini Feroni). There is a wall of shoe samples, which is impressive. This can be seen before you hand over the 6 Euro entry. The rest of the museum has nothing about his shoes. An... More

Its not really a Ferragamo museum, its more Palazzo Spini Feroni museum. If they had just called it that, I would have given it 3. Certainly not worth 6 euros and honestly, you see more shoes at the store, only two small walls at the museum. Cannot recommend UNLESS you want to know about the palazzo itself.

OK. We love Ferragamo. My wife has dozens of pair. I own many too. So we were hoping to see a museum such as the Gucci of Ferragamo products over time. No such luck. Instead there is a wall of shoe models from the 1950's to maybe 1980. And there is an exhibit of shoe molds for about three dozen... More

My daughter and I went here and were amazed at the reasonable cost and the amount to see. It does, I admit, seem a little random, but all the same worth a visit fir 3€ each. Two walls full of beautiful shoes on lasts, all classics to be drooled over, then a lot more stuff in the painting and history... More

The curators of the museum are aware that not everyone in the world has a fetish for shoes. So they incorporate different exhibitions related to shoes into the museum structure… equilibrium, balance, etc. Sorry, folks. You won't just get to see Ferragamo designs. You learning something else as well! There are the famous shoe designs and the shoe lasts that... More

The museum itself is a very nice place. They change the exhibition every year. The current one is about the history of the building and also partially on the city of Florence. You will see also a selection of night gown shoes between 1950 and 1960. There are some photos about Salvatore Ferragamo and his clients. If you go there... More

Well-designed and curated museum that uses shoes as an entry point to explore other themes. 'Equilibrium,' the exhibit we saw, examined walking, balance and movement through the visual arts, dance, tightrope walking, alpine climbing and eventually shoes. Brilliant.
