1. Florence: Museo Galileo Entry Ticket

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.

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.

Nice museum with a lot of artefacts that are the background to Galileo's discoveries. There is free wifi, so you can download the museum's App, which contains a free audio guide to EVERYTHING in the museum. One must expect that the museum is more of an exhibition of the things Lorenzo Di Medici provided for inventions and discoveries such as Galileo made use of All in all a very exciting experience.

Beautiful museum. It also has two rooms where in one the little ones can play using their ingenuity and the other a laboratory where young and old can test their skills.

Un musée intéressant. L'application gratuite permet d'en savoir plus sur divers objets. Une visite très instructive.
