Museo Stibbert, Florence

Museo Stibbert, Florence

Similar to the Frick collection in New York City, Museo Stibbert is the acclaimed personal collection of Frederick Stibbert, which was donated to the municipality of Florence after his death at turn of the century. The collection includes paintings, costumes, and a diverse array of armor from Europe, the Middle East, and Asia (including some pieces you can even try on). Other kid-centric museums that can’t be missed in the city include Palazzo Vecchio and Museo di Storia della Scienza.
