I'd never considered a museum of porcelain before, but once we stepped inside, I was amazed at the beauty and intricacy of everything inside. It was a nice place to beat the heat, the views from the top were amazing, but it's an amazing little museum, too.

I am not a porcelain aficionado by any means, but the detail and artwork of the pieces are phenomenal. This museum is atop the hill in Boboli gardens located conjoined with a rose garden. It houses a beautiful collection of porcelain from all over Europe. There are serving sets, sculptures that date from the 1700 – 1800’s. It is included in the price of admission to the Boboli gardens and the views of the countryside from atop the hill are great.

Only go if you are already in the gardens. The gardens are super impressive and the view from outside the museum is the best part! The collection is fine - super small and not overly impressive. Worth a visit if you really known your art history/porcelain collections.

This is housed at the top end of the Boboli Gardens within the Pitti Palace complex. Although the pieces and very intricate, the overall presentation is quite dull unless you have a specialist interest in porcelain.

....included in the ticket price for the Boboli Gardens is entry into this museum which, for admirers of porcelain and fine china like us, is an absolute feast for the eyes....The museum is housed in an unremarkable building at the very top of the gardens. The steepish climb to get there is very worthwhile as housed within is an amazing array of the finest porcelain from throughout the centuries. The skill and expertise of the various famous European porcelain and china factories are really well displayed, for ease of examination, in an amazing array of dining and decorative finery for the Italian royalty. Not particularly large, the collection is still of a size to provide a very enjoyable interlude from touring the expansive gardens which houses it. This unique Porcelain Museum is not to be missed when in Florence....
