MUSME - Museo di storia della medicina
Opened in 2015, this provides a lively yet rigorous account of the history of medicine as it changed from an ancient practice into a modern science.

The layout is adapted to suit different types of visitors: a more playful presentation of facts for children, and a more scientific approach for grown-ups.

Esapolis is Italy’s first large-scale insectarium and was the result of a fruitful collaboration between the Province of Padua and Butterfly Arc. It is housed in the restored early-twentieth-century building that was once home to the country’s most important bacological research station.
