Florence Free Tour

It is one of the oldest scientific museum in Europe and on February 21, after four years of work, its suggestive rooms reopen, rich in anatomical and botanical waxes. In preview, the spectacular of Palazzo Bini Torrigiani in via Romana was visited by the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella in the Tuscan capital on 8 February for the hundred years of the University of Florence. A choice that increased the expectation: the requests grew up and the University’s museum system has decided to give the city four days to free admission from 22 to 25 February, only by reservation. Established as an imperial and real museum of physics and natural history by the Grand Duke Pietro Leopoldo on February 21, 1775, he owes his name to the astronomical observatory made in the Tower that dominates the historic headquarters. This is the first example of a scientific museum open to all, without limitations of origin, gender or class. The museum was closed since 2019 for redevelopment works.

How to book Reservations:

will be open from Monday 12 February, until the seats last, online and at the Vivaticket stores (which will be the reference channels for booking and purchase of tickets also for the following days). In these first dates, visitors will be able to discover the new paths – the botanical and mineral ceres – set up after the restructuring and find the historic collection of zoology.
