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

If you are into military history - this is the place for you. It is a little out of town. The grounds and building are lovely. The house is full of memorabilia of an avid collector. The decor of the rooms is rich and ornate. Probably not on the list of Top 10 museums, but does have some interesting items.

The Sibbert Museum is a very interesting museum with all things to do with war and military stuff. Worth visiting if you are curious about this type of history

I am still confused by this museum. I booked what I thought was the tour of just the Japanese section, and then planned to take my time visiting the rest of the museum. It turns out that for my 8 euro, I was rushed through the entire museum like a child with no attention span, in just one hour. We... More

A huge, needy old house crammed with stuff. Best for fans of military memorabilia, otherwise not worth a visit. Needs a huge endowment to renovate.

Well worth visiting extraordinary collections particularly Japanese and othe armour. Stibbert spent 10 months of the year traveling round the world collecting and two months doing the London season.

Probably my son's favourite museum in all of Italy !!! Stabber's museum proved to be a true gem of a find ! We were in awe of the collections - and it is well presented as well. The fact that there was a few helmets to try out was a joy to my little son - who lives knights !
