Museo della Fondazione Horne

Museo Horne

The museum houses the collection built up by Herbert Percy Horne, a collector and scholar of English origin who settled in Florence at the end of the 19th century. He furnished a small 15th-century palace with objects dating chiefly to the 14th–16th centuries. The collection includes fine paintings and sculptures (from Giotto to Simone Martini and from Masaccio to Giambologna), ceramics, jewellery and houseware, furniture, seals and fabrics, which recreate the atmosphere and appearance of a Renaissance dwelling.

The museum's Educational Service offers guided visits, creative and multimedia workshops based on involvement, participation and inclusion.
