Museo Di Palazzo Poggi - Review

Unlike all other art and architectural centric museums in Bologna, the museum of palazzo poggi covers numerous intriguing topics like the military sciences, zoology, astronomy and genecology etc.

Built in 1560, the building is a former house of Alessandro Poggi and Giovanni Poggi. In 1714 it became the institute of sciences with the addition of tower of observatory (1725) and the library in (1744). The institute was a key part of the University of Bologna especially during the age of enlightenment.

Currently the museum is divided into the following rooms:

Carducci Rooms- Once the main classroom of poet Giosuè Carducci now houses a statue of Hercules by Angelo Pio.

  • Naval and antiques maps and charts museum- Is ideally the Geography and Nautical room. The room contains various models of ships that were of strategic importance for Bologna during the war time. What takes away the cake are the copper engraved maps on the walls with writings, ornamental motifs, and decorations depicting human, animal and allegorical figures.
  • Museum of Military Architecture- Designed by Luigi Ferdinando Marsili, the room contains plans of fortification that were designed by some of the eminent civilians of that time. The room beautifully describes the art of town planning. 
  • Museum of Human Anatomy- Contains the anatomic wax collection of 18th century. The collection is very informative in nature and gives extensive knowledge on anatomy of human being.
  • Obstetrical Museum- Housing experience of Giovan Antonio Gali, this room is a blend of theory and the practical know-how.
  • Museum of natural history- The collection of the room stands out from others of the same theme because of the skilful blend scientific methods and artistic skills to observe nature and reproduce them. The main subjects are: geology, mineralogy, paleontology, botany, zoology and comparative anatomy.

The museum staff is very friendly and guided tours can be arranged. It is a must visit and a great change from other museums of Bologna.

Museo Di Palazzo Poggi, Bologna Reviews

  • Cool wax museum. It's quite small. Expect to be done seeing everything in less than 45 mins. Still worth checking out if you're under 27. 3 euros. 5 euros otherwise.

  • beautiful museum! has to be one of my favourites in bologna!

  • Great, diverse museum. Even though the lady at the counter forgot to give me 10 euro back.

  • Awesome museum. Very unique. It focuses on the history of science and even is laid out in an "old fashioned way." The rooms have old fashioned wooden cabinets with collections that have old labels on them. It really helps you imagine how collections used to displayed. The museum doesn't focus so much on the artefacts themselves but how science was perceived in previous centuries. Everything in the museum was cutting edge at some time, whether it be boat construction, maps, optics, terracotta foetuses, fossil collection, etc. The frescoes are also worth seeing and only 5€.

  • Amazing but crowded. Better off season
