  • It's a poignant and exciting experience. Now with the ability to see a new way to investigate the human body with a stratigraphic hologram created by 1,200 networked computers. To see, to touch a future that will radically change the way we do analysis and surveys on the human body.

  • Representations from life. If you knew I could feel that waxes are true and even so some doubt remains! Several rooms, Museum piccolino, but worth the visit.

  • Great collection
  • Assuming that we wanted to see him on Saturday but because of nonexistent parking places in Bologna (also to piazza VIII agosto was full) gave up folding up on ikea, we returned the next day and, despite another huge effort, we were able to to get to the Museum. The collection is especially for children, because the waxes are very "educational" and there are very few notable reproductions. Many skeletons with their "medical history" set out in a small box dominate the scene but explained themselves poorly. Especially the skulls "exploded" where you can appreciate the joints of the skull have nothing to indicate how they were made. I was pretty disappointed and have to say that of Ferrara is much nicer because it will be even a little throwaway but there are true collector's items and organs in formaldehyde that aren't real fabrics but waxes.
