The rooms of the Museum are named after 4 distinguished scientists who taught and carried out their research activities at the University of Pavia: Antonio Scarpa, Luigi Porta, Camillo Golgi and Alessandro Volta. One room, chiefly housing Physics instruments collected by Volta’s successors, is named after the 19th century.
At the entrance, visitors will be greeted by a gallery of portraits: busts, statues, prints, period photographs and a series of medallions created for the opening of the museum. All these depict illustrious professors of the University of Pavia, arranged chronologically along the walls, from the fifteenth century until the thirties of the twentieth.
