  • This museum is definitely a must for those interested in birds or want to read up about it. At the ticket office you receive an audio guide and you start listening to the first recording, about the origins of the building where we are located. Then, climb the ladder in front of the ticket window, starts a long series of cases containing stuffed birds. By information panels you learn that the collection is the work of Alfredo Brandolini, naturalist lived in Ravenna at the beginning of the 900. Reading the various explanations and listening to the audio guide, you know better than the figure of Brandolini and you learn a lot about the world of birds (not only the morphology but also habits, nesting, etc.). In particular, the collection focuses on the ornithofauna of wetland in Ravenna: this is a very particular habitats, known for biodiversity and very interesting in many fields of the natural sciences. Currently the wetlands of Ravenna are included in the Po Delta Park, of which the Museum is also one of the visitor centers. We proceed along the halls, between cases filled with birds of every shape and size, as long as also appear some mammals while they stuffed animals (rabbit, Fox, weasel, Skunk, various mice ...), insects (butterflies, beetles), snakes and sea dwellers, including a couple of large crabs from menacing appearance. The last local to where you pass contains, as a deposit, other shrines ths of birds. It was explained to me that to stock the Museum has far more than what you see in the Palace, and that the specimens do not normally visible are put on display at events, when relevant. Certainly the Museum would need much more space. One thing to improve are the labels with the indications of the names of the specimens exposed: written not in very great, most in black on a transparent base and inside the display cases are not always well lit, in most cases for me there was no possibility of being able to read them. For the rest there is the courtesy of staff, very well informed on all the activities possible nearby (walking trails, cycling etc), gave me directions that I hadn't been able to find otherwise and valid information. My visit lasted just under two hours.

  • The place is nice, the staff are friendly and helpful with the kids/teens. Have a little scavenger hunt type games to liven up the tour of the place. Not too far from here, you can also go on a boat and visit the River along its canals.
