  • The Museum has rich collections, but unfortunately they are crammed in nineteenth-century storefronts without major explanations. A more modern presentation and selected artifacts would help non-specialists to understand better what they are observing. -recommended for children. -free admission.

  • Passionate about ... rocks and stones, is the place where spend a few interesting hours, even on rainy days. I am not aware that recently we have added additional exhibits, although the show is already very rich.

  • Free admission and a spectacular dinosaur reconstruction. The children were fascinated.

  • 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.
