  • The museum is located, near the university pole, behind the Cravino area, a beautiful museum, where you can see the techniques of that time and the evolution to this day, very interesting.

  • Visit made in the week, in total quiet. I have no idea about the turnout on the weekends. I would highly recommend a visit to this museum. Exciting presentation made on our arrival. In a few minutes and in a comprehensive way, a manager explained how the exhibition was structured and showed some practical applications of electricity and then let us visit the halls in total autonomy and tranquility. Very recommended.

  • This is one of the hidden gems of the region, for sci/tech buffs. The collection is extensive, dating from 1700's to present. The organization is roughly chronological, in these groups: Static electricity generation / Leyden Jars Voltaic Piles / early batteries Early Telegraphy Later telegraphy - various methods of channel multiplexing Electric motors and generators Radio receivers spanning from coherer-based to solid-state Radio transmitters Television from mechanical-scan to PAL Telephones and telephone switching equipment Early medical X-ray equipment Particle accelerators used at U. of Pavia Early personal computers Consumer electronics from mid to late 20th century. Modern, 21st century automotive electronics Additionally there is a special area with a century-wide span of amateur and military communication equipment. I highly recommend this museum for giving a comprehensive history of electronics unmatched in my museum visits. The only significant exclusion here would be in solid-state microelectronics (integrated circuits).
  • Perfect place to learn history of electrical engineering. Tribute to Alessandro Volta.
