The Stibbert museum is a must-see so please make the journey out of the historical centre of Florence to the north of the city to see this house and garden. The house was the home of a man, Frederick Stibbert, who had an English father...More

I am glad I ventured out of the city center and visited this museum. I would rate it a 5 if there were multi-lingual signs in each room. Although I was fascinated by everything I saw, my tour was in Italian, which I do not...More

With no local history involved, many people probably don't consider the Stibbert, but it's amazing! So much armour, set into glass cases, on horses and riders, and so many other things too- it's a 2 hour visit that we don't regret at all. We tagged...More

Loved this tour and the garden outside of the museum is beautiful. If you don't want to see the museum, walk in the garden!

This musuem is very nice. Instead of glass box and tags, it feels like you're visiting someone's private collection in their house - which is pretty much what this museum is. It's a museum of suits and armors - a private collection of Federick Stibbert...More

Some people in my family were reluctant to visit this museum as Trip Advisor seems to suggest that it is simply a suits of armour museum.. which it is! But there is also an amazing house behind it, and even the rooms with armour in...More

Our sons wanted to see this museum so we tagged along with them. We were so glad we did! This has to be one of the largest collections of armor, weapons, shields--anything associated with "knights in shining armor." Everything's displayed in a palatial residence resplendent...More
