We only really went in for a quick look but it is a stunning building with amazing mural paintings and the Anatomical Theatre was superb. A real wow moment. Some of the old books on display from the old library were well worth the admission...More

I like to find things that are a little different from churches and museums and this fits the bill. I found this fascinating and would highly recommend a visit.

Nice atmosphere. absolutely great woodcarvings. you can sit on the first row of what was once the student's benches. Next to the lecturer's chair there are two statues showing all the muscles.

As a medical person and history buff, this was a must see. Its inexpensive, quick to visit and unique. As an orthopedist, I particularly enjoyed some historic texts showing orthopedic care for a tibia fracture and hip fracture.

I thought the Teatro Anatomico was a must see, but it was made super interesting because of our guide. There were a lot of people who weren't with our group and got the benefit of his review.

Really fascinating anatomical dissection theatre sey in a beautiful building. Entrance fee also allows you into Stabat Mater Hall and you can have a view of the library through the gated door. A real experience that you should not miss

As everyone has said it is only 3 euros to see this. By itself I thought it disappointing but it is contained within a building which is interesting of itself. If you are in Bologna you will probably do this as it is cheap enough...More

A must see if you're visiting Bologna. It only costs 3 Euros. The story of this classroom is an amazing glimpse into the history of medical education and Bologna. There were very few other visitors when we were there. We sat for awhile taking in...More
