Dinosaur display was great!
Dec 2017 • Family
We visited here while walking around the university area, mainly to show the dinosaur display to our small son, and he loved it! It is a fairly small museum more for research/educational purposes with lot of archaeological finds and collections. The Diplodocus display is the biggest attraction for young children. I would recommend it.

The dinosaur is great!

A wonderful old style museum. Fantastic to see all of these fossils. The big attraction is of course the dinosaur. It is worth the visit alone.

Must-see
Aug 2016
We visited two Museums in Bologna, this one an the Zoology one, both at walkable distance from each other and both free and very educating for all ages, we were with children and they also enjoyed both places. Would definitely recommend if you have the time. Has a huge Dinosaur in this one that really surprised me.

Great for archaeology lovers

The museum is in a lovely part of the city, you could take a walk to it and enjoy the architecture. It's not a big place, but if you love archaeology, you would love it. Of course the best part are the huge dinosaur skeleton on the second floor and the scull next to it. It's a well kept museum and it's a free admission.

Great to visit with kids interested in paleontology...
Jan 2016 • Family
despite the name of the museum refers to geology... there are lots of fossils among plants and animals; impressive mastodons, Torvosaurus and the replica of a Diplodocus (original is in Pittsburgh) which is the star of the museum. A favorite visit for school kids.

This is one of the many University museums; is not tech and modern; 1800's showcases piled with their collections make them fascinating, but confusing for the eyes of an outsider. Entrance is 2,00 (have read that sometimes is free); weekdays is open only in the mornings (9-13) and weekends sometimes open so better call beforehand and if can catch the monthly English guided tour, better!

This place is amazing! And free! Walk down the street through the University area and you will find that their research museums are open to the public. The place is like walking into a movie set from an old movie. You can get really close to the exhibits and not have to fight crowds.

Wonderful experience
Mar 2016
Highly detailed, kind staff, perfect for families. You need min. 1 hour to see everything they have, one day if you really like natural science and dinosaurs. I will go back again, the next time i visit Bologna.
