Bust of Galileo
Observing location
Museo Galileo, Florence, Italy

We visited the Galileo Museum in Florence during a birthday trip last April. It is an extremely well-presented and interesting museum, well worth a visit if you are in Florence. Very popular with local schools (which must be good for the future of Astronomy) but go early to avoid the crowds.
