One of the main things I wanted to see in Florence was this museum thinking it would an insight to the archival history/life the brand and man. Instead it was a 10 room sad exhibit of other no-name designer clothes/projects all about sustainability. Which is important but felt like it was walking around a temporary exhibit to hide a construction zone behind false walls. Only 1 room (the first) was a look into original archives of the show designs. Honestly go to Gucci Gardens for a wow jaw dropping fashion exhibit and it’s free. Museo ferragamo is down in a basement and not worth the €9 to get in. So so so disappointing. The creation rooms in the store right at the staircase down into the Museo are a better exhibit and history than the Museo.

Definitely worth a visit if you enjoy looking at stylish shoes. Some of the designs are real knock-outs! There's also a gift/shoe shop.

There may be 10,000 shoes in the archives but less than 100 on display. Waste of 8 euro entry fee. Artists with high concept of sustainability on display. Turning pineapple stalks into yarn. Film on someone flying in the air without solar power. This makes a difference to the planet? Diversity project of photographing mostly white staff shows diversity? Are you kidding? Self indulgent importance of wealth displayed.

We were very excited to tour the Ferragamo museum and to learn about the artist and his life - well besides seeing some shoe molds of famous people you really don't learn anything else about the man or the fashion house he created. The bulk of the museum is for special exhibits and have nothing to do with Ferragamo. The staff was rude and then upstairs in the store if you didn't look the part they followed you around until you were so uncomfortable you wanted to leave. We were very disappointed in the entire experience and wish we had the $6EUR each back!

We (2 adults and a teenager) spent 20 minutes in this place - desperately trying to find anything interesting - the display was about recycled materials but there was so little to see. We read all the information, tried to spend time absorbinbg the atmosphere - but really?? We asked the person selling tickets if there was another section - cant believe they charge this price for such a flimsy, short display. Don't waste your time.

After reading about it and the fact that Ferragamo has about 10.000 models of shoes I expect to see a least a part of them ,after paying a fee of 6 euro per person .But NO ,they were about only 50-80 shoes ,and a lot of photos and other things ,with no meaning for this type of museum. You can find more Ferragamo shoes in the shops. they were only 4-5 rooms, and that was ALL! .One with some modern art and one with two stuffed gorillas...So in 20 minutes was all !And in the guide it was written that you can go only by appointment and for free ! I was very disappointed about this !

Having read Tamsin Blanchard's reivew in the UK Telegraph magazine, that there are 14,000 pairs of shoes in the archives of Salvatore Ferragamo, I was so disappointed to get to the Museum to discover no more than 100 or so on display. This is really an exhibition, not so much about the shoes, but the study of the anatomy of the foot. I cant believe this took three years to put together. It did leave me wanting more.....shoes.

This museum used to be free but it now costs 5 euro. It is quite interesting as it gives the history of Ferragamo shoes as well as some of its famous clients. I love the Audrey Hepburn shoes since she and I share a "common" size - 10 - and she favored ballet flats - which I love. This museum was worth it for me and my husband even enjoyed it.

I loved it here! I have to say I was expecting quite a few more shoes to be on display but I absolutely loved the environmental side of it and seeing all the fashion that was made from renewable and sustainable resources.
It was so fascinating to see how the fashion industry is trying to keep up with climate change and really make the most of making clothes that are sustainable and still look good.

Given that were staying in one of the Ferragamo hotel we had free access to this little museum. Interesting enough, although I can see why some reviewers believe it's not worth the entry fee of 8 Euros. It focuses on sustainability noting the company was rather forced into it in the 30s and 40s by austerity and the war, but now is a committed follower of the trend. Certainly some interesting examples of raw material being recycled and re-purposed, but the thing that struck us most is that the shoes from the 30s based on sustainable and recycled materials looked remarkably modern and stylish. Certainly an unusual specialist museum and whether you think it's worth the money rather depends on whether you're a green or a fashionista (or both!).
