The Science Museum of Trento, designed by Renzo Piano, dedicates six floors to topics such as science and nature, biodiversity, innovation and technology.
Thanks to multimedia exhibits and immersive environments, MUSE explains the wonders of the alpine environment and the nature that surrounds us. Another focus lies in issues of global interest, such as sustainable development and environmental conservation, which are equally engaging.
MUSE is a place of continuous transformation, a ‘grid’ of projects made up of exhibitions, events, workshops, conferences and research facilities. The permanent exhibition is flanked by numerous temporary displays that, over the course of the year, explore various topics in greater depth. Until January 6, 2019, the exhibition called “The Human Genome. What makes us unique” offers a journey through the new challenges, opportunities and risks of genomics.
The MUSE is also a real paradise for children and teenagers. Some areas are specifically dedicated to the "scientists of tomorrow". For the youngest visitors (aged 5 and under), Maxi Ooh!, an area that lets them discover, understand, observe and have a go for themselves. For older children (5-10), the Discovery Room, an area with large soft toys to represent animals at risk of extinction, interactive exhibits and simulation games. And for those already struggling with school subjects, twenty interactive exhibits in the “Science Gym” are dedicated to the basic sciences involving visitors in brief and simple experiments related to concepts and principles of physics, mathematics and natural sciences.
