MUSEUM IN NAPLES
MUSA (Museo Universitario delle Scienze e delle Arti, or the University Museum of Arts and Sciences) celebrates the marvels of the human form, inside and out at the historic Anatomy Museum. Science and art intersect to display all manners of human curiosities, medical marvels, and some dark Italian history.
The MUSA Anatomy Museum is a site of convergence for art, history, and education. Learn about the processes of cremation and fossilization; the evolution of medical equipment and the modernization of Neapolitan hospitals; and the cultivation of studies in physiology and pharmacology.
After years of neglect, the Anatomy Museum (then referred to as the Anatomy Museum of the University of Campania Luigi Vanvitelli) reopened to the public in 1997. In 2012, a rebrand re-presented the museum as part of the Museum of Arts and Sciences. A new museum director and a committee board transformed the space into an educational resource and concept museum that exhibits the university’s vast collection while delving into Italian medical history.
Clancy's comment: This would not appeal to everyone, but I'd find it very interesting.
