I enjoyed this off-the-beaten-path (no lines! no crowds!) museum that holds one man's collection and ponders ethical questions about collecting. Do you restore them or leave them as is? Is it right to take them out of their original context? Like the Isabella Stewart Gardiner...More

A common opinion provides that the travelers in Florence see first the plenty of and sublime architectures and museums, and only then, if it's time left, they broaden their attention to the "minor" (minor in relation to Florence, that is) heritage: eg the less illustrious...More

In amongst the madness that has become life in Florence, lies an oasis of tranquil beauty with the treasures collected by this clever man. It is a stand out for our week in Florence and would encourage everyone to use their Firenze card here first!

Great to see some collections of antiques. We spent an hour here and enjoyed the statues, wooden carvings, carpets, furniture, frames, bronze, urns, weapons, early photos and more. John Currin paintings were on display throughout the museum as well at the time.
