The Galileo Museum is perfect for a child’s inquisitive mind! Focusing on all things Galileo Galilei, the museum walks visitors through his various inventions, including telescopes and microscopes, all the while highlighting the story of the astronomer’s life. It’s one of few museums in Florence you’ll be able to attend without waiting on line, and you can probably tackle its tiny interior in an hour or so. But don’t let this place’s size fool you! As a treasure trove of gadgets, children will be entertained at every corner. (There’s even a hands on-area where kids can play with some of Galileo’s creations.) Visit the gift shop after, and you’ll go home with a totally unique souvenir!
