When learning is fun
Every weekend Museo Galileo proposes 90-minute educational activities in Italian for families with interactive tours and workshops that let children (from 6 years up) and adults interact with the world of science.
Located in the heart of Florence, Galileo Museum is just a few steps away from Ponte Vecchio and Piazza della Signoria.
Inaugurated in 2010, it houses the collections of the Istituto e Museo di Storia della Scienza. With its library, archives and multimedia, photo and restoration laboratories, it handles the important work of sharing our scientific heritage.
The permanent collection has great Italian and foreign mathematical and astronomic tools collected by various members of the Medici family and the Lorena tools.
There are also several temporary exhibitions and shows focused on all aspects of science and its interaction with daily life.
