Had no idea of this interesting mans history and not a shoe fanatic, but really enjoyed an hour here. Well displayed and nice tough to have video with other engineer/ designers and not just focus on shoes Love of life had bought items in the shop so we did not pay but i would pay six euros for this.

I understand that museums change with the seasons but I wanted to know more about Ferragamo. Salvatore Ferragamo was such a pioneer in his time. He crossed the waters to the USA and made a big splash which has resulted in a multi billion dollar business. He was the first couture shoe designer, making one of a kind styles and... More

I was really looking forward to the museo. What a disappointing experience that cost 6 Euros. Located in the basement of the flagship store, the main room where you pay is the only room that has a display of shoes going back to the inception of Ferragamo, and shoe molds of famous people. The other rooms were confusing. Modern art,... More

First of all, seniors (over 65) and students are admitted free to this little gem of a museum tucked in the basement of the Ferragamo Flagship store. Once inside you can browse the history of Salvatore as he emerged from humble beginnings to the premier shoe designer of his era and beyond. In addition to the shoe collections dating back... More

I was there with my fiancee, the museum it's not about Ferragamo, but it's a modern art museum. It's interesting, but you can miss it.

Hidden in the basement of the Ferragamo store is a small museum that has a fascinating collection of Ferragamo shoes through his career. I love shoes and was fascinated by some of his cutting edge designs in the thirties and forties, and stunned that he had applied for hundreds of patents. In fact, the earlier designs were far more edgy... More

I read the reviews on TA upfront and was already expecting nothing. Just wanted to judge for myself. But it was even worse than the low expectations I had. Besides the 6 euro, out of the nine rooms there is only one about Ferragamo which covers maybe 12 square meters. The video about his childhood one reviewer mentioned was not... More

Expected more! Micro museum showing some shoes through the years and wooden lasts used for known people. Not really worth the visit.

My best museum experience in all of Florence. Found it by chance while windowshopping, hidden in the basement of the Salvatore Ferragamo store, and what a gem! It was an all over magical experience, so enchanting and inspiring. Loved the animated movie based on Ferragamo's childhood - it lasts about 20 minutes and is well worth your time. It's on... More

A little museum upstairs in the offices of Salvatore Ferragamo. Very interesting - covers the career of Ferragamo and displays many of the shoe forms used to handcraft shoes for the rich and famous. Really fun.
