Museo della Ceramica (Museum of Archaeology and Ceramics) Review

The Museo della Ceramica has some 3,000 pieces of majolica, a type of glazed pottery made in this region since the early 14th century. The museum is beautifully lit; objects dating from the early 14th century to the late 18th century are well labeled and arranged, and provide a good overview of the region's ceramics-making history. There's also an interesting display of the coats of arms of important Renaissance families such as the Medici and Strozzi.
