Natural History Museum of Maremma - Grosseto - Grosseto e la pianura


strada Corsini n. 5 - centro storico


The museum is a cultural centre and a place for dialogue between the scientific community and the public, through guided tours, educational activities, special projects, exhibitions, conferences, conventions. The rooms of the museum have two main themes: a discussion based on systematic or chronological criteria and a descriptive approach to habitats and their ecological relationships. In both cases, the exhibits are free of static presentation and arranged in a more modern and communicative manner. The contemporary use of diverse exhibition forms (e.g. panels, showcases, dioramas and multimedia) forms a complex communication model, differentiated by subject and type of user. Along the exhibition route there is detailed information on the samples displayed and insights on topics of general interest. This allows a simultaneous and a comprehensive discussion of the specific environmental contexts, without sacrificing description of general topics, often in preparation for the proper understanding of other concepts. Another cornerstone of the museum arrangement are the educational islands, important elements of support and exploration to supplement the simple guided tour. These islands are physically distinct spaces from the rest of the exhibition facilities, within which students can learn about specific issues and develop their knowledge with direct experience, through the manipulation of samples. The museum is equipped with a rich specialized library accessible on request and on the internet, and also publishes the annual scientific journal “Proceedings of the Natural History Museum of Maremma”.
