My boyfriend and I tried to find things to do out of the busy city center, this was perfect. Stibbert's private collect is very interesting. The estate itself is stunning and the gardens are perfect for a nice stroll after visiting the museum.

We had a few hours left before leaving Florence so jumped in a taxi to this location, having picked up a leaflet. What we were met with was quite breathtaking in the expanse of the collection, the sheer number of objects and the almost eerie presence of the original collector - who set this out 100 years ago. It says... More

Whether you enjoy warfare or not, you will be astounded by the exhibits in the Stibbert Museum. From artwork to artillery, and from warriors to war horses, every detail is authentic, and every exhibit life-size. The Cavalier Room is awe inspiring, and choose a pleasant day and enjoy the beautiful gardens.

The Stibbert is a lovely, intimate museum that essentially paints a portrait of the man who collected the items and endowed it. One is not allowed to roam at will, but goes with a "keeper" who walks one through the collection, explaining a few things (not a tour, but just a few helpful comments). The day I was there, a...

Discovered this almost by chance and was in awe of the huge display of arms, swords, helmets, etc. 55000 pcs. On display. The mansion is also awesome. Worth a visit.

Well this is undoubtedly the greatest collection of weaponry I've ever seen. The suits of armor, rifles, swords, it goes on and on. The life of Mr. Stibbert and the home were fascinating to me but I had my fill of the weaponry pretty quickly. Needless to say, my husband was very intrigued by it all and enjoyed it immensely....

I had the cat sanctuary in Rome and my boyfriend had this. He was like a kid in a candy store. Tours run hourly, you can't walk around the museum independently. 8 euro pp for admission and 1hour tour. The two villas combinded to form this epic museum was mind blowing. Everywhere you looked there was armour, weaponry and beautiful... More

This museum is definitely different to your standard art on walls museum. This is more visiting the house of a man with so much money he bought everything he found interesting. The amount of items (some very random) packed into Stibbert's villa is astounding. So many interesting things to see!

We took the last tour of the museum at 17.00, they're once an hour and take about an hour to see the whole place. We were the only English speakers there of a group of about 10 and the guide offered to speak in both English and Italian but since I should be improving my Italian we declined. He was... More
