MUSE, the Science Museum of Trento, designed by the famous architect Renzo Piano, is the ideal place to discover science and nature.
The MUSE, located in the “Le Albere” district, was inaugurated in the summer of 2013 and replaced the Tridentine Museum of Natural Sciences. The building is spread over a total area of approximately 19,000 m², arranged over six floors to be discovered.
An exhibition itinerary that uses the metaphor of the mountain to narrate, from top to bottom, the formation of the Dolomites, Alpine biodiversity, the history of the first human settlements and the discovery of the origins of the world through the largest dinosaur exhibition in the alpine arc. The relationship between man and nature is at the heart of the MUSE exhibition philosophy. By visiting the museum it is possible to understand how science and technology can contribute to finding good solutions for the future of our planet. The MUSE, through interactive exhibits and multimedia installations, offers a wonderful journey into science and nature, designed above all for young people, children and families. Alongside the permanent exhibition itinerary, innovative projects and numerous and interesting temporary exhibitions find space, as well as many events and special projects.
Inside the museum there are unique spaces such as the tropical greenhouse; the “FabLab”, a digital manufacturing laboratory and the “Maxi Ooh!” space, dedicated to children aged 0 to 5, where they can discover, understand, observe, try and experiment through real and virtual sensory stimuli. Guaranteed fun!
