really interesting to see and view all of the items on display. Unfortunately, the language barrier restricted my understanding of the artifacts.

Between sightseeing, it is worth to see this museum. Plenty of animal exhibits, geographic points. I was with an 8 year old who was delighted with this place.

While walking around Bergamo Old Town we came to the Musel di Scienze and spent the next half hour enjoying the history of some local developments. Hindered a bit by the lack of english descriptions the visuals were sufficient in many cses.

Situated in a small square this museum is lovely for kids. Lots of stuffed animals and skeletons of bigger creatures. Well worth an hour of you and your children's time.

We enjoyed this small museum that had a lot of taxidermied animals. There were also opportunities to touch the specimens. It is a very good place to take children. We saw a very interesting video about the watering system and fountains in Bergamo.
