  • Suffered damages of the flood of 66, then there are also photos and movies of when it happened, among other things a few months after a ceiling collapse inside the Museum while withing to that damage. Carry out restoration of works (even that was documented). The beauty is still given by the works on display, from the "stones" you are able to get unimaginable (explains the work done), what is the peculiarity of the process and the tools used. Very interesting (especially if visited before the Medici Chapels).

  • Exquisite workmanship in seldom-seen artistry. The second-floor collection of the tools used to create these extraordinary pieces was fascinating in itself. 
  • It's a very original Museum with works of great artistic value in a field of gemstone jewelry unusual, with works of extraordinary beauty, which will definitely fascinate the audience

  • Such a wonderful museum! Genius craftworks since Renaissance. Shame that it's not very much known..
  • 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.
  • Amazing and very understated
  • W b bankura
  • Ferdinand I de ' Medici was responsible for the founding of artistic craftsmanship characterized by processing of precious stones. The Museum actually collects unfinished works or result of changes and subsequent dismantling and, in the rooms on the ground floor, there are the Medici Granducal period productions, while the upper floor houses the laboratory delle pietre dure, with a rich sample of stone and tools and Workbenches. Today there is no mention of artistic workshop, but restoration Centre that caters primarily to sculptures and stone artifacts, in connection with the growing interest and the subsequent restoration of historical buildings.
