  • The museums of Frederick II are poorly advertised and unfortunately not currently open on Saturdays and Sundays except in special occasions (for example the pleasant view/market ' collecting nature's paleontology). They are close enough to the Metro's line 1 University Station (then proceed to via Mezzocannone, 8) and can be an idea both for tourists interested in that for the same from Campania who don't know them. I visited the museums of paleontology, mineralogy and Zoology:-paleontology-hosted in the beautiful cloister of san Marcellino and Festo, retains original Allosaurus fragilis skeleton from the United States and assembled into dynamic pose. Also the cast of Scipionyx (the baby dinosaur discovered in Campania and affectionately called ' Ciro '), designed for college even by paleontologist Mark Lord. Present yet fossils of flying reptiles, marine, Cretaceous fish in excellent condition from Pietraroja and Quaternary mammals, invertebrates Castellammare, also of previous eras to the appearance of dinosaurs and much else despite the Museum's not great. -Zoology-great Museum that between skeletons and stuffed animals is stepping into Zoological variety of our planet with the added charm of the historic environment. Among the skeletons: an elephant of the 18th century which was donated to the Kingdom of Naples, a beached whale in Taranto, Rhinoceros, whale watching. Many rare species (for example an okapi embalmed, a Spix's macaw) or extinct (sea lion, a subspecies of Kangaroo etc.). -Mineralogy-the exposure is very wide and the main room gorgeous. Huge variety of minerals by type, size and origin. Would be to modernise a bit like indications and information for visitors but already watch them is extraordinary. Sometimes the guardian show fluorescent minerals under UV show wonderful colors.

  • Museums to visit, even separately, are five: Paleontology, mineralogy, zoology, anthropology and physics. Are quite large, trane to anthropology and require, wanting to pay attention to content, from now to the two at least those of zoology and Paleontology. Into that of Paleontology is the dinosaur skeleton, only in the South, most complete of Italy. In Anthropology there is a panel of facial casts taken from "alive". To Zooologia is quite large and includes a really large amount of animals; a peculiarity: there are many descriptive discadalie with characteristics of many animals really funny that enclose specific SPP curiosity. A nice thing about physics, for the amnati of equipment dated. Also nice to mineralogy, but specifically for enthusiasts. Anyway ... to visit!!! Have fun!

  • The 5 museums, paleontology, physics, zoology, anthropology and mineralogy, little-known but wonderful museums are rich in artifacts and wealth. Worth, thanks to low prices, take a ride. Beautiful.
