  • Very interesting also for young explorers, life-size reconstructions of prehistoric animals and fossils.

  • Saw the rainy day I thought I'd bring my 2 children fond of prehistory and dinosaurs to the geological Museum ... looking a little on the site I had already made an idea of the Museum and so I didn't have too many expectations, obviously the highlight is the Hall of Diplodocus otherwise some good case but then many pieces "piled up" with a few explanations ... so you see it's a museum dated that would need an emphatic redesign ... merit for free admission that compensates for the shortcomings listed above. To visit in gloomy days.

  • Happened quite by accident on a cold day and rain. Free admission. Very interesting especially for children. Maybe some more explanatory panel would be beneficial, but overall we were pleasantly surprised.

  • It was amazing to see many spaces from New Zealand and around the world which means that our planet is very old and to realize that you should go to this museum. To see skeleton of dinosaurs, fossils of plants and animals which lived 10 000 and more years ago. If you are in Bologna -just go there!!!! Don’t hesitate to go anytime because you will be surprisingly amazed!
  • A true gem! A museum about its own history as much as the natural history it houses. I was fascinated throughout, from the portion housing the original "cabinet of wonders" to the military models to the museum of physics.
  • The name can be misleading, the highlight of this museum are not stones, but the fossils! Of all types, from huge diplodocus dinosaurs with feathers until fully assembled. A dream if you have young fans of dinosaurs, but interesting for adults too. Keep an eye on the news because often organize workshops and guided tours.
