  • From animals and bugs and fish and birds to the coolest wax anatomical figures (last room is pregnant and babies but easy to skip with our youngest). Really cool and nice diversion beyond the Pitti Pa...  more »
  • What a cool museum. It gives you a glimpse into the sciences of the past. The taxidermy was amazing and the anatomical wax figures were mind blowing.  more »

  • Lots of taxidermy and wet specimens. Huge collection of human anatomy wax sculptures and drawings. Only 6 euros each per ticket. Probably the most interesting place you can find for that ticket price. Don't forget to look up. The ceilings are painted with murals. Give yourself at the very least 2 hours to enjoy it.
  • Large variety of specimens with many being endangered or extinct. An entire section dedicated to human anatomy mainly focusing on musculature and various organs. Ovarall an interesting place to visit if you have a chance.
  • Great museum to visit Also interesting for kids The natural science collection is one of the most complete I've ever seen
  • Cheap entry, mainly ALOT of taxidermy displays, were great to look at and see species that either are endangered, what people believed to be a myth at one time and our favourite animals
  • As a former student of Biology, this place was pure heaven! It will have something fascinating for everyone though the anatomy exhibits might be scary for younger ones.
