Fodor's Review

Although it tends to be obscured by the glamour of the neighboring Uffizi, this science museum has much to commend it: Galileo's own instruments, antique armillary spheres—some of them real works of art—and other reminders that the Renaissance made not only artistic but also scientific history.
