Museo Galileo

Interesting
Housed in the austere, medieval Palazzo Castellani, this museum is home to a rich collection of old scientific instruments. A significant portion of the exhibits comes from the collections of the Medici and Habsburg-Lorraine families, who, from the Renaissance period onwards, had a humanist desire for all fields of knowledge and were particularly passionate about science. Note in particular the Galileo memorabilia (lens, telescopes, compasses etc).
