What Galileo brought to the world of science is immense. Not only did he fight to tell the world that the Earth and planets of our solar system revolved around the Sun, but he also contributed to numerous astronomical discoveries.
Meet your private, experienced family-friendly guide in front of Santa Croce and let them show you the highlights of this church, which happens to be Galileo’s final resting place. After a quick walk, let your guide take you inside the Galileo Museum. With extensive experience on how to keep children engaged and entertained while talking about the different instruments shown in the museum, the guide will tell you and your children all about the life of the famous astronomer and explain the real functions of the instruments he (and other scientists) invented or used.
The Galileo Museum is not entirely dedicated to the Florentine scientist. The museum is home to one of the biggest collections of scientific instruments in the world. From telescopes and thermometers to huge globes and mathematical objects, you and your children will bathe in a world of impressive discoveries and inventions that have brought us to the world we live in today.
A game booklet will be handed out to each child to keep them engaged and entertained throughout this 2 hour tour.
