Pretty standard old school natural history museum with lots of exhibits and some of the taxidermy going back to the late 18th century over two floors Helpful staff, well priced. The building itself was nice as well from an architectural perspective. Not air conditioned

I enjoyed this museum more than I expected to, mainly because my first priority is always to visit Art museums, (although I admit to a fondness for insects) so it’s taken me nearly 18 months to get around to Museo Civico di Storia Naturale “Giacomo...More
