If you are in Bologna this museum worth 1 hour of your time. They have a very colorful and detailed bird collection what it was worth it. On the other hand some of the mammals were very poorly prepared.

This is located in the university quarters and is definitely worth doing. It is free entry and there is lots to see with a variety of animals on display. We would definitely recommend taking half an hour of your time to have a look around!
