Opened in 2004, the Museo del Balì is an interactive science center created with the aim of stimulating and promoting interest in scientific culture in central Italy.It is installed in the splendid setting of the 18th-centuryVilla del Balì and thus situated in an area with a rich historical and cultural legacy.
The science center’s facilities include 40 hands-on interactive exhibits, a 46 seat Planetarium and an Observatory. They have been constructed to the highest international standards and share the proven hands-on approach to communicating science.“Observe, touch and think” are the keywords for visitors on the itinerary of exhibits that takes them from the principles of perception and exploration of how things work to key concepts in science.
The only one of its kind in the Marche region, the Balì science center is laid out in an exhibition space of 2000 squared meters and is second in Italy in terms of its size and the quality of its facilities.
Touching, listening, sniffing, looking, thinking...
...this is the way we move along a path of knowledge which, from the principles of perception, bring us to discover the nature of light and to unleash the key concept of science.
At each step our ideas about the world are confused: we have to try and try again to learn to formulate hypothesis close and closer to reality.
This is the invitation of each interactive exhibit, a unique way to rediscover yourself as a scientist; no matter your age.
