This compact, yet comprehensive museum is perfect for those of you who love fashion, especially shoes. You'll get a thorough understanding of Ferragamo's history as well as displays of beautiful shoes that I would wear today. It's a little confusing the find the entrance...it's right next door to their boutique just in case you want to get your shoe fix with contemporary styles and your contemporary money :) Even my husband enjoyed this museum. He's not a shopper (it gives him a headache) nor is he interested in fashion at all, yet he appreciated the history and the workmanship.

Hey, the Museum is nice and interesting for us all, BUT there is a good reason NOT to go; your wallet. Not only is the Museum next to a Ferragamo store, but it is within blocks of Chanel, Hermès, Armani, etc. etc.

This is one expensive street to visit, but I have to admit, it was really great.

Ferragamo museum is one of my favourites. I travel to Florence quite often, so it is the museum I visit every time I'm there. They change exhibitions quite often, so it is definitely a must visit when you are in Florence. They have very interesting workshops for kids too.

I ended up in this museum only because the Gucci museum is closed till January. For 6 euros per person, I saw about 30 pairs of shoes ( was expecting to see more cos it's Ferragamo). The rest were art pieces. I don't see a theme of this museum and left very puzzled. Don't bother.

So much more than shoes - which are gorgeous! The Ferragamo Museum highlights Salvatore Ferragamo's personal history as well as the trends in art and lifestyle during the 1920s in Italy. We expected to enjoy lovely shoes, and came away with a better sense of this period in history!
