Travelers with children will find interesting places nearly everywhere in Florence. Piazza Della Repubblica is known as one of the liveliest areas in the whole city, with numerous places of interest, museums, and restaurants located close to it. An amazing merry-go-round, which will be certainly liked by children, is also located there. Experienced travelers recommend visiting that place in the evening when the merry-go-round is lit by an attractive illumination.
Older children will find much fun in the Museum of Geology and Paleontology (the Museo di Storia Naturale di Firenze), which collection is nothing but unique. The exhibition includes skeletons of ancient animals and figures of dinosaurs that inhabited our planet millions of years ago. There is also a rich collection of archaeological artifacts in the museum, and all children are recommended to take a look at it.
Vecchio Museum is one of the most unusual museums in the city, which is also good for a family visit. The museum is located in a unique mansion built in the 16th century. In the past, the building belonged to the Medici dynasty. A visit to the museum is like a journey to the past. Here travelers can walk in the mansion and enter its hidden rooms with the skillfully restored style and atmosphere of the past. A theatrical performance is an essential part of excursions in the museum, but visitors will be absolutely fascinated with the part when they can observe and even try antique costumes and masks.
