The Museum

The Museum of Natural History of the University of Florence, with ten million specimens and over four centuries of history, is the most important Italian naturalistic museum and one of the largest internationally.

The Museum is organized in eight sections located in various parts of the city of Florence: Anthropology and Ethnology, Biomedicine, Botany, Chemistry, Geology and Paleontology, Mineralogy and Litology, Zoology and the Botanical Gardens.

All collections are actively studied, preserved and valorized in order to showcase to the community at large the extraordinary heritage of scientific and historical knowledge that represents the true value of a museum institution.

The spirit of the Renaissance, which marked the beginning of the modern age and produced an effective synthesis between science and art in Florence, is still alive today in this institution where the impulse to innovate combines seamlessly with tradition.
