On the river next to the Uffizi in 12th-century Palazzo Castellan is this state-of-the-art science museum, named after the great Pisa-born scientist who was invited by the Medici court to Florence in 1610.

A visit of the museum unravels a mesmerising curiosity box of astronomical and mathematical treasures (think telescopes, beautiful painted globes, barometers, watches, clocks and so on) collected by Cosimo I and other Medicis from 1562 and, later, the Lorraine dynasty. Allow plenty of time for the interactive area where various hands-on exhibits allow visitors to discover first-hand how and why some of the historic instruments actually work.
