Giovanni Poleni Museum

The only museum of its kind in the Veneto Region, the Giovanni Poleni history of Physics Museum houses several thousand instruments illustrating developments in science and technology from Renaissance to present days. Considered among the most important international assemblages of unique and rare pieces.

The new arrangement, completed in September 2021, allows the public to experience the visit to a Physics Cabinet, heart of research and teaching at the University of Padua since the 18th century. Accompanied by various multimedia tools illustrating the wealth information that each historical instrument offers, the visit to the museum, already largely popular, is an exciting experience and a place for discussion between university students and the public about past and present of Physics and science in general.
