About the Museum

The Polytechnic Museum, founded in 1872, is one of the oldest science and technology museums in the world.

The Museum aims to draw the audience's interest to knowledge and achievements of the human mind, inspire youth and support young professionals.

Today, the Museum's historical building is being renovated, and the conception of the Museum itself is changing as well: it goes beyond the object collection, lectures and exhibition tours, promoting its activities as a platform for scientific discussions, educational projects and intellectual efforts.
