The interactive museum. Hands on: do, make and learn: you are the Star

The interactive Astronomy and Space Museum of is a modern Science Centre where you can experience science in person and learn more about astronomy.

Hands on and getting involved are the hallmarks of our Museum, where knowledge is absorbed first and foremost through our sense organs, and only then becomes the object of an explanation and thought.
Starting from the ground floor and going downstairs, you will delve deeper and deeper into the secrets of the Universe, retracing the key steps in the history of Astronomy, investigating the expanding Universe, touching on its most mysterious aspects: from the Big Bang theory to Black Holes.
