Museo Galileo: 1930-2010

The arrangement and display of the Museo Galileo’s unique collection have been changed many times during the institution’s life. This virtual exhibition recalls the main stages of this history, celebrating both its 80th birthday and the inauguration of the new permanent exhibition. The rich collections of the Museum’s iconographic archives made it possible to create a striking gallery presenting a brief biography in images of the Florentine institution. The iconographic material is supplemented by essays, books and catalogues published in electronic format, which document the showcasing and conservation of a historical scientific heritage of the utmost importance.
