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.
