  • The visit of the Science Museum is included in the ticket that allows a visit to the attractions that are located within the University; the buildings that house it are located about 300 m from the main complex. It represents an interactive museum on science in its universal sense, touching a little all the branches in which science itself can be divided, and we talk about chemistry, physics, medicine, pharmacy, zoology, astronomy, botany, etc. Several rooms allow you to admire the museum's collections; animals, plants, stones and fossils, are displayed in huge cabinets with stained glass windows, in front of which you pass in magazines much of these complex and very rich worlds. Other rooms house the appliances and objects that were used in the University for experimentation and explanations to students of natural laws, supported by the experimental approach that made them plausible and more easily understandable and assimilable. Some further rooms offer the visitor an interactive approach, using ad hoc contraptions, for the understanding of the laws that govern light (optics), sound, and matter, elements of physics, whose laws are realized daily before our eyes, without us fully aware of it. With the help of tools and objects, the visitor can interact and understand some natural phenomena, following in the footsteps of the great scientists of the past.

  • This museum is included with the All In price if you are visiting the university and is also really worth it. It is not big but speaks to you. It is about the natural museum that closes under noon and where one has to spend more time because it is larger. So plan here and take into account that one will get a set hour for a visit to the library!

  • Really enjoyed this mix between interactive installations and old-school science tools! I'm a scientist, so no surprise I loved it so much. Quite a few of the interactive things didn't work, but it's still great time spent in here!
