See the mind of a Genius

Really enjoyed the hands on experience and insight into the mind of Galileo. Amazing to also see the ingenuity, creativity, and intelligence of so many other notable minds. The focus on the heavens and understanding the stars is very intriguing. Enjoyed this immensely.

BE CAREFUL! When we booked, the tour information and then the voucher both clearly stated 10:30 pm. The museum isn't open at 10:30 pm. I tried calling the local contact number, but was not able to reach anybody. So we did not get to see the Galileo Museum and trying to contact Viator is not easy. I am quite disappointed that I was sold a tour for a time the location was not even open.

This is a nice museum, but I would classify it more as a science museum, not specifically Galileo. Being a fan of science, I enjoyed it very much. You don't need more than 1.5-2 hours.

The whole group really enjoyed the museum. Anyone interested in science would have a great time. Many of the exhibits drew questions and started conversations between students and with teachers.

Le musée était très décevant. Nous avons payé beaucoup plus cher qu’il était et il n’y avait aucune file d’attente. Donc pas du tout une bonne valeur d’achat.
