I did this tour with my mother after we'd grown tired of the art galleries of Florence and wanted something different. Not only is the display of armour and weapons from different periods superb but the original furnishings of the villa itself are just as,...More

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

That's good that it's located elsewhere, far from all other museums. They allow entry only for 25 people per hour. We arrived around 11:00 and needed to wait till 12:00 in order to entry. The museum itself is eclectic, kind of eccentric and very different...More

Unless you like dusty museums that are about to be closed. Very dark, old, unkempt probably filled with "duplicate" armor and artifacts.

My wife and I wanted to see this large collection of Armour and weapos. As the escorted ( presumbly to prevent visitors laying about them with swords and axes) tours go every hour we saw the japanese robot exhibition- this was quite fascinating juxtaposing the...More

Amazing collection - its a pity the tour was done in Italian - luckily for us an English lady was translating for her family so we tagged behind them to get the full benefit of the tour. The gardens are unfortunately left over grown and...More
