The new Museum of Nature and Humankind in Padua will be the main enduring legacy left to the city by the University’s 800th anniversary celebrations. It will be housed in the magnificent Palazzo Cavalli, and will include the vast naturalistic collections assembled over the centuries by scholars and explorers of the University of Padua.
This large interdisciplinary, interactive and multimedia scientific Museum, on three exhibition floors, starting from the magnificent Sala delle Palme (Hall of the Palms), will show how the Earth is a complex system of physical, chemical and biological relations in which humanity plays an integral role.
