Pre-book your entry ticket to Museo Galileo in Florence to experience one of the world's major collections of scientific instruments, a testament of the importance that the Medici and Lorraine Grand Dukes attached to scientific and artistic research.

Come prepared to immediately start exploring the extraordinary figure of Galileo Galilei and the museum’s collections. Across its 18 thematic rooms, admire the scientific instruments from the Medici Collections which were first displayed in the Stanzino delle Matematiche (Mathematics Room) in the Uffizi Gallery.
