Wax Museum

Linked to the famed Madame Tussaud's in London, the Museo delle Cere recreates historical scenes such as Leonardo da Vinci painting the Mona Lisa surrounded by the Medici family and Machiavelli. Another scene shows Mussolini's last Cabinet meeting. There is of course a chamber of horrors with a garrotte, a gas chamber and an electric chair. The museum was built to replicate similar buildings in London and Paris. It is a must visit if one is ever in the city in order to take home some unforgettable memories.

Museo delle anime del Purgatorio

Museo delle Anime dei Defunti is a little macabre, but after the initial surprise you find it has a mystical atmosphere. The items on show represent hand-prints left on prayer books by individuals now deceased. An amazing item is the incandescent print of a German nun, which was left on the tunic of one of her colleagues in 1696. The collection was begun in the 20th Century and aims to show the skeptics that there is life after death. To witness some of the most strangest experiences, this museum is a must visit!

Museum of the Sanitary Arts

One of the most different museums, Museum of the Sanitary Arts is sure a must visit spot! The museum helps to understand how the students are taught the art of healing and sanitation through the use of anatomical wax models. The museum also exhibits some bottled creatures all around the room that gives an effect of a scientists' lab. Do not miss the sight of the Siamese twins among other specimens. Admission is free. Call ahead for more information.
