We enjoyed the interesting artefacts from all over the world. Only disappointment was that over half of the artefacts had no english labels. We had to guess what they were with our minimum italian. We liked the musical instruments from all over the world.

If you are handicapped, be sure the elevator is working before purchasing tickets to this museum. The stairway is long and steep. Fortunately, for me, they finally got the elevator working as I could not climb the steps to the first level. Otherwise, the museum...More

This museum is definitely worth while visiting as it has quite a few interesting pieces on exhibit. The good thing is also that it isn't crowded. The display's bring you back in time and allow a tour around the world. There is no A/C so...More

I was delighted to find such a wide range of artefacts from around the world, especially New Zealand - a very healthy collection of Maori taonga. We stayed for about 90 minutes in order to really take everything in. The staff were friendly and informative....More

There is so much to see in Florence that I can understand why most people do not visit this museum, yet for people who are interested in artifacts from other cultures this museum really is worth a visit. There are pieces from different Italian collections...More

This museum displays a small, but interesting range of ethnographic items from around the world, mostly from earlier native cultures, which have either disappeared or "modernised". It is worth spending a few Euros to see it, if you are interested in ethnographic art and world...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
