  • I really liked. Varied, interesting and interactive museum ... Beautiful renovated building. A piece of Padua to know. ...

  • I'm a recent graduate in medicine and i love museums of this type: interactive, instructive, scientific theme. But this museum can be enjoyed by all, since not too specialized and very interesting. Indeed, in my opinion, is more targeted boys and adults, but still recommend everyone to spend a couple of hours different from usual in the Centre of Padua. Opened recently and there are still many empty rooms. I will definitely return when I will have expanded.

  • Museum based on the teaching of the history of medicine, which thanks to the interactivity can be appealing for all ages: sensors that activate projections with the stories of great men (interpretations in costumes by actors who play in Italian and English subtitles) and with touch to discover human anatomy and play testing their knowledge in medicine. Staff friendly and attentive, and guided tours with knowledgeable staff to satisfy all ages.
