Galileo revolutionized humanity's understanding of science and the universe with proof that the Earth orbited the sun. Nestled in the heart of his native Florence, this fun-packed museum explains and celebrates his incredible achievements.

In the museum's Medici collection, check out some of Galileo's original scientific instruments, including his iconic telescope and the lenses he used to discover the moons of Jupiter. And you'll see his real middle finger, perfectly preserved in an ornate glass vial!

After that, browse an incredible collection of ancient Italian scientific equipment, including Antonio Santucci's armillary sphere – the largest in the world. You'll come to appreciate just how much Tuscany has contributed to modern science.

Feeling inspired? Study up in the gigantic scientific library (with over 15,000 works) or go wild with the hands-on exhibits and interactive displays.

This museum is awesome. Really interesting and remarkable.

I would recommend a visit here. There is a very good collection of items relating to the development of science in the renaissance period and beyond. I don’t think any aspect of science from that time is omitted with a huge range of items and video clips covering e.g. mathematics, electro-magnetism, meteorology, optics, fluid mechanics and even obstetrics. The craftsmanship and level of intelligence within the collection is awe inspiring.
