  • Initially chosen as a filler of Monday morning, when everything else is closed, we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the exhibition and the beauty of the pieces on display. Don't miss the upstairs, with the work on display and, especially, the rough stones smoothed, a more beautiful and curious than the other.

  • By entering this small museum we immediately attracted by works, that leave us amazed. In order to better understand how these are made it should be, IMHO, start your tour from the upper deck, where, since entering there are cases where it shows, step by step how to get from raw stone to the mosaic, how to make a cameo appearance etc. Amazing, right, exposure of gemstone and fossil Woods.

  • Really amazing. A smallish museum but full of incredibly amazing art you won't see anywhere else. There are pictures and tables that took decades to create. We also had a great English speaking tour guide (thanks Gabriel!) who was able to answer our questions and provide lots of interesting information.
  • Interesting museum if you have more than one day in Florence
  • The first thing that impressed us is the price of this museum: 4€ normally and 2€ reduced (age depending, not for students). Inside it is quite small but there are a lot of wonderful carving and setting works to see. There are two floors in this museum while in the first there are this finished operas in the second there are the instruments used in a lab to work the stones and on a wall there is a collection of hundreds of the most famous stones used for those works like alabasters, granite, lapislazzuli etc. etc. This museum is not so much advertised and is quite hidden in Via degli Alfani, doesn't seems so nice from outside, but if you go in Florence you should visit it! The only defect is that maybe is too small but for that price it is acceptable.
  • Such a wonderful museum! Genius craftworks since Renaissance. Shame that it's not very much known..
  • Amazing and very understated
