Full description
Pre-book your entry ticket to Museo Galileo in Florence to experience one of the world's major collections of scientific instruments, a testament of the importance that the Medici and Lorraine Grand Dukes attached to scientific and artistic research. To get started, simply show your confirmation voucher at the museum the day of your visit. Come prepared to immediately start exploring the extraordinary figure of Galileo Galilei and the museum’s collections. Across its 18 thematic rooms, admire the scientific instruments from the Medici Collections which were first displayed in the Stanzino delle Matematiche (Mathematics Room) in the Uffizi Gallery. Visit the 11 rooms located on the first floor that are dedicated to the Medici Collections: quadrants, astrolabes, meridians, dials, compasses, armillary spheres, and real works of art made by famous Tuscan and European artists. Marvel at the museum’s exhibits of Galileo’s original instruments, including thermometers, microscopes, and meteorological instruments. Head to the second floor, with its 10 rooms and displays of beautiful instruments, mostly belonging to the Lorraine family, used for mechanical, electrostatic, and pneumatic applications. Other sections are dedicated to mechanical clocks, sextants, octans, pharmaceutical and chemical apparatus, weights, and measures.

Very interesting! My husband is more into these than I am and I had a hard time understanding what most things were, but it's pretty neat how far along things have come in science. Could have bought there as there was no line, but always good to be safe.

Museum was not very busy as far as lines. Enjoyed this science museum with my granddaughter who wanted to see this one as priority. Interesting artifacts from as far back to 2nd century. Very interesting first telescopes, thermometers, and electrical demonstration instrument.
