We were really disapointed after we visited MUSME. It is interesting but all films and explanations are in Italian. We could not believe there were no bilingual explanations for most museum items. For a touristic city like Padua it is unbelievable.More

Dear visitor, Thank you for your review. Much of the exhibition itinerary (videos, information panels, infographics, multimedia games) had been translated. The videos are in Italian but subtitled in English. The italian panels have nearby small panels with the same text in English. We are...More

The museum is very well organized. There is a good balance between the number of exhibits, interactive interfaces and the story of medicine development itself. The ladies who work there are kind and informative and only thing that's separating the whole museum from 5 star...More

MUSME is a collection of exhibits that describe the history of medicine. Since the University of Padua houses one of the oldest medical schools in the world, it is fitting for this museum to be located in the historic center of Padua, within walking distance...More

I’d expected something oriented to children, maybe a computerized tour of the human body, which two exhibits indeed offered; but the museum as a whole was well-done and even got us into the interactive part, like standing as if you were going through airport security...More

Lots of fun and interactive displays with plenty of historic and up to date medical information. There could be a little more information written in English but for the most part it is sufficient.

I was really looking forward to this museum. But left pretty disappointed. The subtitles to the video in each room were fine and gave a general guide to what each room was about. Sadly most of the exhibits had explanations in Italian but little of...More

What a great experience! This is definitely more than a museum; it is an interactive, hands on few hours. Yes, everything is written in Italian, but at each exhibit, you knock on the door, and an historic scientist talks to you about the discoveries of...More
