Museo Civico Di Storia Naturale Reviews & Ratings

  • Great place, but big disadvantage is lack of description in English

  • Great place !

  • Assolutamente da non perdere per chi è appassionato di scienze naturali. Tutte le sezioni sono ben curate e ben descritte, gli esemplari sono numerosissimi e conservati benissimo. Particolare il cranio con le zone identificate dalla "frenologia" come attitudini, teoria ormai scartata dalla scienza, ma un pezzo di storia della psicologia.

  • Un museo bellissimo di storia naturale sempre aperto a orari continuati e prezzi bassissimi, offrono una serie didattica e molto interessante di geologia, storia e tanto altro. Molto consigliato per tutte le età, sicuramente ottimo per i bambini vista l'impronta didattica bella e semplice da seguire. Ci sono percorsi di geologia, biologia, animali, fossili e altro ancora, ogni vetrina è spiegata in ogni dettaglio con appositi fogli e schermi: tutto è spiegato approfonditamente ed è veramente grande e interessante.

  • Bellissimo, da non perdere. Per gli appassionati di biologia e geologia questo museo è una vera chicca. È completamente fornito sotto tutti gli aspetti: tassidermie, fossili, scheletri, collezioni di conchiglie, gemme e rocce... Vi è perfino esposto uno dei più importanti asteroidi del mondo (purtroppo sbriciolato). Vi sono anche reperti storici antropologici
