/ "Pisa is" museums

The wealth of a city lies in its history and in the historical testimonies it has managed to preserve. The history of Pisa and of the many personalities who lived in this place and have contributed to enhancing the city with their works, is today celebrated in the many and varied museums that characterize it with their uniqueness and beauty.

This route will lead you through the centuries of history that the city has gone through. You will be able to walk among the recently discovered ancient ships, visit historic palaces and religious buildings that house works of art of all ages or in which figures such as Galileo Galilei resided and worked, discover the skeletons of huge dinosaurs and large cetaceans in a frame of incomparable beauty such as the Cistercian Charterhouse of Calci, and see works of modern human ingenuity in the museums of the Pisa University and the Piaggio museum in Pontedera. 

Enjoy your visit!

The Piaggio museum in the town of Pontedera, the Certosa di Pisa museum and the adjoining museum of Natural History, in the village of Calci, are not part of the city pedestrian circuit and can be reached by public or private transport.

The Titta Ruffo collection is exhibited on the top floor of the Verdi Theater. You can view it if you are attending a show or upon express request, by contacting the ticket office or the information office of the theater. It is advisable to check the correspondence of the opening hours by contacting the theater directly.

Visits to the Giuseppe Toniolo House Museum are organized on request and are carried out by a specialized Cooperative.

Finally, we would like to inform you that the Museum of Calculation Instruments and the Museum of Physics Instruments are temporarily closed for renovations.
