Full description
This Florentine museum tells the story of dynasties by themes with periodic art exhibitions, events and a specialist bookshop. The first room is dedicated to genealogy with a real portrait of the Medici family and accompanying holographic film. Learn about the birth of the grand duchy, the Medici palaces, the fleet of the Knights of St. Stephen and see the large diorama illustrating the famous battle of Anghiari.

See a virtual painting gallery, a very precious collection of original coins and historical engravings, interactive exhibitions, Medici costumes, a historical collection of stuffed animals, a collection of precious stills related to alchemy, a model of the telescope with which Galilei discovered the Medici planets and even an original document by the pope who condemned the Pisan astronomer.

Finally, visit a wine cellar where you can learn about and buy the favorite wines of the Medici, protected by Cosimo III in 1716.
