Pisa | University Museum System

Since 1543, the University of Pisa has built an extraordinary heritage consisting of collections that narrate the most important stages in the evolution of scientific thought and European culture up to the present day.

The extraordinary heritage of the University of Pisa

In 1543, the first Botanical Garden in history was created in Pisa.

The university had already been in existence for two centuries, but from that point onward, the fruits of the research and activities of those who taught there began to be preserved, cataloged, and organized for educational and informational purposes.

The heritage has become an exhibition offering consisting of ten structures: nine in the city (Egyptian Collections, Gallery of Ancient Art, Veterinary Anatomical Museum, Museum of Human Anatomy, Museum of Pathological Anatomy, Museum of Computing Instruments, Museum of Physics Instruments, Graphics Art Museum, Botanical Garden and Museum) plus the Natural History Museum in Calci.

Guided tours, theatrical events, and educational programs

The University of Pisa’s University Museum System (SMA) offers support for guided tours and educational programs, which can be arranged by contacting the SMA Educational Services. The University Museums host guided tours, conferences and seminars, theatrical or musical events, training courses, educational activities for schools, artistic workshops, and specific activities for people with disabilities.
