Full description
The tour starts in Piazza della Signoria and continues to the Science Museum or the Galileo Museum, dedicated to the famous scientist. The Museo Galileo is full of scientific tools of great importance. Admire the two famous telescopes, and the finger of the great physicist, which is perfectly preserved. Then continue to the Observatory Museum and the Natural History Museum, in a beautiful antique palace with a Forum dedicated to the genius scientist.

Excellent art, scarce science.

The history and art part very good. During the visit to the Galileo museum there was no scientific explanation due to ignorance of our guide. We appreciate and positively value the Get Your Guide service despite not meeting our goals about the Galileo museum.
