Gucci Museum Opens | Handbags Exhibition in Florence, Italy

Posted on: Sep 28

Gucci Logo StoreThe House of Gucci is celebrating its 90th birthday by opening the doors of its new museum in Florence today.

The museum is fittingly housed in a breathtaking medieval palazzo in the city of its birth. Inside you'll find all manner of Gucci goodies, from red carpet ready ball gowns to handbags and larger travel bags. Seeing Gucci creations through the fashion house's nine-decade history allows us to appreciate the trend-focused changes and those iconic constants, including bamboo handles and the signature interlocking G logo print.

The museum spans some 18, 500 square feet, and is housed over three themed floors. The ground floor focuses on travel, with luggage, trunks, and vacation accessories from the 1950s and 1970s, the period known as Gucci's travel heyday. Walk upstairs to drool over the It bags of the past and present. The top floor celebrates Gucci's logos, including its famous signature prints, the double G monogram, and the green and red racing stripes.

You can indulge in a little Gucci luxury at the gift shop, which sells Gucci branded merchandise including iPad cases and stationery.

Admission costs €6, but half of that amount will help preserve art around Florence. Does the opening of the Gucci Museum inspire you to take a trip to Italy?
