My family of four - two adults and two kids ages 12 and 14 --really enjoyed this museum. It's been redone since I last visited in the 1990's. I had remembered Galileo's middle finger in a reliquary and thought it was just so hilarious, I wanted to show it to my kids. However, the real draws here are the amazing scientic instruments and equipment. It's just so amazing to realize how advanced these scientists were back in the 13th, 14th, and 15th centuries! We rented the videoguides for 5 euros and felt they enhanced our understanding of the exhibits. Beware, the staff here are just terrible; they are not knowledgeable about the equipment and are unwilling to provide help if your videoguide dies unexpectedly. We had to fight with them- twice- just to get a new videoguide so we could learn about their museum exhibits! Even so, we enjoyed the museum and it was so nice to be off the beaten track and away from all the crowds in Florence.
