The museum was great. And the guide also. BUT: Tripadvisor toegether with Viator sell FAKE tickets for the days that the museum is closed (due to covid-19). So, in the case you want to visit this nice museum, check the original website of the museum.

Terrific museum highlighting the scientific advances of Galileo and others. Definitely download the free app as it provides audio and textual information beyond what is shown. Takes only a couple of hours, and there was no line!

My wife and I loved this museum. It was not crowded. It is full of history, not just in a variety of Renaissance inventions but how they played into history and art. Fascinating when you try to imagine that these were created by hand and caused so much change to the world.
