Let me start by saying..I love traditional, victorian style museums...from the vast catalog of the similar items on display to the historic display cases. Needless to say I was not disappointed in my visit to the anthropology museum. I was on a guided tour with...More
Room after room after room of displays of "stuff" - ancient and not quite so ancient artifacts of every description including two folded up mummies from Peru. I'm not sure why they were folded up rather than laid out flat like the Egyptians but they...More
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 is part of the Science Museums of the University of Florence, which are divided into different and far apart branches, and together constitute one of the most important complexes of its kind in Europe (but less impressive than others, precisely because they are...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
as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.

Thanks Mirene88 for your response. Is there somewhere on line where I could see what other museums the 10E includes? My guidebook is old (Insight Guides' "Museums and Guides of Florence"). And looking it after seeing your response, I bet that the 10E is for the 3 museums that the book groups under "Museo di Storia Naturale", one of which is Geology and Paleontology which I think sounds interesting.
Another museum that appeals to me is the Museo Storico-Topografico 'Firenze Com'era". Would that be one of the ones included in the 10E?
I'm sure I'll revisit a few of my favorites (and, of course, gape at the duomo everytime it comes into view!) but I'm really excited about seeing some new places I haven't visited yet. I've loved all the museums and churches, but I love Florence even more and want to know all of it.
