Small museum with meteorite specimens, only in Italian
Apr 2017 • Family
This is a small museum located outside the main walls of Prato. The museum is essentially a long hallway that begins with a very dated video of short 80s cosmic video clips set to classical music. Then there is a series of interactive TV monitors - one for each planet, including Pluto. Then there are specimens from a large number of meteorites, and then the hall ends with a nice exhibit of crystals. There is a reasonable amount of text associated with these exhibits (in Italian). Clearly the museum was established originally with love but has not seen further investment or effort for a long time. If you are not excited by meteorite specimens or crystals and cannot read Italian, give this museum a pass. It stands as a massive contrast to the wonderful Museo Galileo in Florence.
