In 21 exhibition halls, about 1,500 of 5,000 instruments are permanently on display, including, for example, telescopes constructed by Galileo Galilei and used in his discovery of the moons of Jupiter. Pretty much all areas of the natural sciences in which discoveries were made up to the 18th century are represented, but especially astronomy, physics and engineering.
