The Specola in Florence

Part of the Museum of the University of Florence, the Specola Museum was opened to the public in 1775, and it is the oldest scientific museum in Europe. It holds the largest collection of anatomical waxworks in the world, manufactured between 1770 and 1850 and over 3,500,000 animals, of which only 5,000 are in view to the public.Check out the Specola's website here +
