Città della Scienza

The first interactive science museum in Italy, to learn and discover things while also having fun

Between Naples and Pozzuoli, facing the gorgeous isle of Nisida and on the slopes of the Posillipo hill, nature meets science. This is where Città della Scienza is located, the first interactive science museum in Italy: for over twenty years it has brought visitors closer to scientific studies with the hands on approach: testing and touching the interactive exhibits to learn new things while also having fun!

Inside the building there is the first italian museum to be entirely dedicated to the study of the Human Body: Corporea. An immersive and captivating journey to the discovery of the secrets of our bodies, our brain and organs, and how they perfectly work together. A three-floors exhibition space divided into different areas for every part/apparatus of the human body: arteries, muscles and synapses explained through immersive videos, virtual reality experiences, games, multimedia and experimentations. Aspiring scientists and science enthusiasts will have the chance to focus on specific themes through on-site workshops held by the scientific guides of the museum.

Starting from November 20, the museum will host a new exhibition “MISSION ANTARCTIC. 35 years of Italy’s mission in the southernmost continent”, an itinerary to retrace the work made by Italy in the Continent of Ice and the results of some of the related scientific research. The itinerary includes an intense photography exhibition named Enchanting Antarctic.

Following the Prime Ministerial Decree established on November 3rd 2020, the Science Center of Città della Scienza will be closed to public – like all museums in Italy – until December 3rd.

During this period of closure, many activities will be available online. Follow us on
