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.
Naples houses one of Italy’s most eccentric anatomy museums, with ancient Roman medical tools, the skulls of victims who died when Mount Vesuvius erupted in Pompeii in the year 79 A.D., anatomical sculptures made from wax, and mutated specimens preserved in formaldehyde within its expansive holdings.
