E. Caffi - Natural Science Museum

Description

Located next to the Archaeology Museum in Piazza della Cittadella, where it was moved in the same year (1960), the Museum of Natural Science keeps most of its collections in its archives, in order to let scientists study them and develop the knowledge about environment, living animals and extinct species. It was established in 1861 in the building of Regio Istituto Tecnico: today, it hosts millions of natural findings!

Before entering the Museum, we have a little warning for you: an enormous mammoth is going to welcome you at the entrance. But don’t be afraid, it is extremely friendly!

Right after the Museum’s prehistoric guardian you will find many specimens, divided into groups: zoology, entomology, geology and palaeontology. Afterwards, you can admire many examples of all five classes of vertebrates, along with a wide and rich collection of arthropods, with more then one million specimens!

You can also admire the shimmering collection of minerals. Moreover, if you loved Jurassic Park you will also love the amazing fossils coming from Bergamo territory and from all over the world: over 55.000 findings, including a fantastic life-size cast of the skeleton of an Allosaurus, a large bipedal dinosaur!


The Museum of Natural Science is very active and is involved in many initiatives, as well as local, national and international events.

Conferences, film festivals, excursions, temporary exhibits, and workshops: at the museum you can also use electronic microscopes, read books or use the tactile showcases. The museum is also very attentive to disabilities and is equipped with specific itineraries, such as the Braille one for blind people.
