I like this museum because it is old and dusty as one hundred years ago.
The Museum of Natural History, University of Florence, was founded by Grand Duke Peter Leopold. The Section of Zoology 'La Specola' was opened to the public in 1775, and it's 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.
