The collection can be described as princely, in that many pieces were made for the grand-ducal court or were gifts from other European rulers.
The Museum is situated in the Casino del Cavaliere, an elegant little villa in Pitti Palace, at the very top of the Boboli Gardens, from which one may enjoy a superb view.
