The Exhibition

MUSE combines the traditional content and approach of a natural history museum with fresh topics and the innovative interaction typical of cutting-edge science museums. Visitors are given an immersive experience via interactive exhibits and multimedia installations.

A cross-disciplinary approach focuses on first-hand experimentation, practical “doing” and informal learning tools. This pioneering formula makes MUSE one of Europe's most innovative science museums.

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 innovative projects and numerous temporary displays that, over the course of the year, explore various topics in greater depth.
At the same time, new scientific developments are followed and debated on the web and on social media as part of an innovative, inclusive approach to engaging with the public.
