The museums of the University of Padua are ready to open its doors to the public


The University of Padua museums are ready to open its doors to the public with exciting journeys towards the historical, artistic, scientific and naturalistic heritage of our University. The staff of the University Centre for Museums awaits with a series of free guided tours (in Italian only) to important collections and discoveries.

Every Tuesday afternoon the Museum of Archaeological Sciences and Art takes us to discover Roman Padua and a dedicated space to Gio Ponti's Gipsoteca (a gallery of plaster casts). Every Wednesday afternoon the Museum of Education guides us back in time to classrooms of the past with educational materials and games once played by our grandparents and great-grandparents. The Museum of Zoology highlights mammals, tropical birds and large scale fish, while the Geography Museum invites guest on Friday afternoons along a three-stage journey that corresponds to a series of key words: Explore, Measure, Tell.

To ensure the safety of all guests, access and guided tours of the museums are available by reservation only.
