This museum is definitely different to your standard art on walls museum. This is more visiting the house of a man with so much money he bought everything he found interesting. The amount of items (some very random) packed into Stibbert's villa is astounding. So many interesting things to see!

We took the last tour of the museum at 17.00, they're once an hour and take about an hour to see the whole place. We were the only English speakers there of a group of about 10 and the guide offered to speak in both English and Italian but since I should be improving my Italian we declined. He was... More

The tour guide was such a sweetheart (and even went as far as letting us safely leave our bags so we could follow the tour unburdened). For said museum itself; it was incredible. It is one of the biggest collection of armors and weapons in the world. This estate had at one time belonged to a man known as Frederick... More

The Stibbert museum is an amazing collection of arms, paintings, clothes and several halls displaying the stibbert family's home. Some pieces dates all the way back to the roman era and the collection also containes Napoleon Bonapartes coat, that he wore when being crowned king of Italy. In addition to about 50.000 other items from europe and asia. The only... More

After visiting most of the very famous locations and museums in the city, we have been to this museum that is a little further away from the historic center, but it was a great discovery. The ground floor was just a sublime collection of weapons and armors, then there is the Japanese section full of wonderful pieces. After that it... More

This is in my view a one-off, very unique way to spend ½ day after seeing all the major attractions. The other reviews are pretty much right on. The interest for me was the armoured knights on their armoured horses and it was not a disappointment. One cannot tour the museum without a guide and the guide may or may... More

Forget the Uffizi, the Accademia, the Duomo - you'll queue for ages and then, because of the press of people, will not enjoy the experience. Instead take a taxi to this little gem of a museum - the house itself is worth the visit and the contents are amazing, with knights in armour on full-sized horses, the biggest collection of... More

Because it is a long walk for the center (45 minutes) we left Stibbert for the end. And not only it did not disappoint but we loved it. I enjoyed it more than every other museum in Florence. What a spectacular collection!!! Unbelievable! And not only the collection but the house was incredible as well. Maybe even more rich than... More

The Stibbert museum is on the outskirts of Florence but well worth the walk to it. It houses one of the biggest collections of militaria covering all periods and all cultures. We had a lovely English speaking guide who brought the museum to life. It is a good museum to take children to and they can get dressed up in... More

Visited here with my boyfriend as he is a fan of weaponry- didn't think it would be for me but the sheer amount of things in this museum is fascinating! Worth the €8 entrance. Tours are every hour around the museum in Italian & English - very interesting. Afterwards you can stroll through the gardens which are very pretty and... More
