  • If you have some extra time to visit the city, in addition to classical sites you can pay a visit to this Museum, which unfortunately is not widely advertised! Interesting in complesso...vi are fossils, animals, studies and exhibits of various types

  • A museum not quite advertised but that deserves to be visited for its natural wealth of exhibits that tell you exhaustively in many areas of evolutionary biology. I recommend it to everyone and especially to students of every grade of school. Also, something to be reckoned with, the entrance is free.

  • This museum is a little out of the classic itineraries to Siena, but I highly recommend everyone to go see it. It is located very close to the duomo and pinacoteca nazionale, in the heart of Siena. I recommend it for adults and children to the wealth of exhibits that it has, both of mineral origin that animal. First, the impact is very strong with the whale skeleton lying inside the courtyard. Then the Museum has a beautiful nature trail. To see for sure.
