Museo della Bilancia Reviews
Una domenica mattina, passando per Campogalliano, mi viene in mente che questo è soprannominato "Il paese delle bilance" e a un bar mi informano che esiste proprio un Museo della Bilancia nel centro d... more »One Sunday morning, passing through Campogalliano, it occurs to me that this is dubbed "scales" and bar inform me that there is a balance in the Centre of the Town Museum. With 5 euros within and I wander surprised and amazed between various instruments that have marked fair weight in commercial contracts. They range from objects that date back to ancient Roman times to modern electronic weighing devices and it's really interesting to learn about the history. A pleasant path that allows me to see the hard work of those who have developed these weighing equipment, several of which have just been developed in Campogalliano. I think the Museum is open on Saturdays and Sundays to other days should call.

Let me start by saying that I have a particular interest in the measurement instrument called Libra and I know very little; I have limited walking-for half an hour-the halls among the many exhibits in beautiful order and reading panels and sheets prepared for visitors, focusing on certain objects particularly original or that I felt like I had a value artistic. Probably, be accompanied by a guide (a person, but also a brochure which gives meaning to the path) would make me more appreciative of the visit has been pleasant, certainly not exciting or challenging. I was a little shocked (and annoyed) that in the same rooms were MegaGigaTera exhibition, dedicated to technology, electronics and computer science; the exhibition of electronic items (I've used and I saw the evolution) that today are considered "collectibles" certainly has its own importance, but because inside the Museum a Libra? And, above all, because between the scales?
Unica nel suo genere. La storia dell'uomo attraverso i sistemi di pesatura. In un contesto naturalistico che comprende i magnifici laghi Curiel. more »One of a kind. The story of man through the weighing systems. In a natural environment which includes the magnificent lakes Curiel.
The Museum is also interesting for who is not particularly related to the world of scales. Well organized and constantly updated. The presence of games in the various rooms can be useful for entertainment of children and teenagers don't particularly ... attracted. Attractive pricing: €5.00 the option family.
Since 1989 the Museum of Libra, through exposure to numerous scales from around the world and covering a period ranging from Roman times to the present day, provides an opportunity to trace the evolution of the instruments for weighing, to discover curiosity and secrets and appreciate the beauty and attention to detail. To date the tools owned by the Museum heritage consists of 1177 inventory numbers, of which three quarters are various scales and the remainder consists of weights and weight sets, linear measurements and barren that capacity for both measures for liquids.
Staff very friendly and easygoing, routes offered very interesting and fun especially for children aged 6 to 12 years, would return every Sunday!
Rich and well developed scale Museum and measures. Vintage memorabilia recent and modern, with exposed display to tell about the evolution of the tools with great explanations. There are interactive stations.
Visit on the occasion of the Festival of P caria 2016. Accompanied by competent and likable Alexander we could realize the treasures contained in the Museum. A collection of very special weight measuring instruments, with tidbits that are worth the visit alone (what about a balance for weighing jockeys, for example?). A light show, an explanation by Alexander, actually a couple of hours spent in quiet and pleasantly. Highly recommended!
