The Museum of Natural History, University of Florence, was founded in 1775 by Grand Duke Peter Leopold, although the Botanical Garden dates back to 1545.
With its 8 million specimens, it is the most important naturalistic museum in Italy and one of the greatest in the world.
Consisting of six sections located in one of the world’s most beautiful historical cities, the Museum houses specimens of extraordinary scientific and naturalistic value: from the XVI century herbaria to the valuable XVIII century waxes, from the fossil elephant skeletons to the collections of brightly coloured butterflies, from the huge tourmaline crystals to the Aztec artefacts, from the imposing wooden sculptures to the world’s largest flower. A context that admirably combines nature, history, science and art.
