Museo Didattico Bombicci

Didactic Scientific Museum Bombicci in Bologna (Italy)

This small museum preserves a 'real gem' of the school history in the town of Bologna, collecting toolkits specifically aimed to teach science at schools.
In the framework of pedagogical renewal of national and European education, the Society of Teachers of Bologna entrusted the mineralogist university professor Luigi Bombicci (1833 - 1903) as a curator of this museum. He scientifically organized it with the idea of making science popular and available to all citizens, besides teachers and children. The museum won medals at national and European Exhibitions and successfully works even today as service to teach science in schools.
