Museo di Storia della Fisica, University of Padua, Italy!

Characterized by objects often unique or very rare, the collection of the Museum of the History of Physics not only depicts the development of scientific thought and technology, but it also represents a precious evidence of the physics teaching and research in Padua from the eighteenth century onwards. The instruments themselves provide stories about scientists, about their ideas and experiments, and about the connections that linked the University of Padua to the Italian and international scientific community.
