The last rooms are dedicated to the paleo-environmental evolution of the Valdarno and hominization, that is, the appearance and evolution of humans from primates to homo sapiens. These two sections stand out because they offer a tactile-sensory itinerary, which invites visitors to explore the past hands-on. The itinerary is perfect for children, but visually-impaired guests can also enjoy it. There’s also an entire room with a life-size diorama of a fearsome fight between two dinosaurs.
The museum is home to a research centre that conserves the 70,000 artefacts not on display to the public, all of which have been categorized and are freely available upon appointment.
There’s also space for workshops about environmental education, which take place in rooms equipped with all the most important scientific tools. Lastly, on-site lectures, especially in areas known for their nature and geo-paleontological traits, can be organized for schools and groups.
