It's a free museum in one of the universities a little out from the centre of the city. It's a small museum but there's still lots to see & it's a fascinating (& macabre) collection. The waxworks are incredibly detailed and you can learn about them & the development of anatomical knowledge. There are also other exhibits apart from waxworks too. Check opening hours as they charge a bit seasonally. It's not open Mondays, and only open to 1pm Tue-Fri, but until 6pm weekends.…

It's off a nice piazza. Bologna is a beautiful city. There are other museums to visit too, close by. The interest here is more that this forms part of the oldest university studying dissection and anatomy, which was sometimes observed by the local cardinal.

Well worth visiting for anyone interested in anatomy and physiology or just looking for "something different" from your usual museum experience. What I found fascinating was the many, many different complications to chikd birth that exist - thank goodness for Cesarean sections.
