The POST Science Centre is the interactive scientific museum of the Perugia Municipality and Province and it is the Region's main popular science museum. 


It is located in Perugia, in the immediate vicinity of the Etruscan Arch and of the Grimana Square, where the University for Foreigners has its main building.

It represents the reference point in Umbria to explore the universe of scientific culture, installed in pleasant and lively exhibition spaces where people of all ages can approach the methods and objects of science.

The staff includes a group experienced in Teaching of Science to provide ongoing support during visits, inspiring and facilitating the understanding of scientific subjects.

The museum, launched in 2003, is divided into three main sections.

The first one (Exhibit Area) hosts 17 interactive installations. Here visitors can experience first hand some natural phenomena (sound, light, colours and many other phenomena connected with waves) and develop experiences linked to optical and acoustic illusions.

Another section (Photo Gallery) is devoted to temporary exhibitions on highly current themes so to inform adults and kids on the new frontiers of science, through interactive exhibitions, supporting texts and spectacular images.

Lastly, the classroom for activities invites visitors to explore the different aspects presented in the other museum sections, autonomously with the help of various tools. 

The POST informs, educates and provides a guide for visitors of all ages interested in scientific and technological topics, with a rich schedule of activities: interactive exhibitions and laboratories, educational activities, classes and experimental meetings about current scientific developments for an adult audience who loves science, exhibitions and events, such as the Scientific Aperitifs and the summer appointments, addressed to people interested in science and technological applications. 

On Sunday afternoons (consult the schedule) the "workshop of young scientists" are waiting for children from 3 to 11 years old.

And apart from that, children from 3 to 11 years old who are curious about science can have their Birthday parties here, with expert edu-tainers and fun workshops! Older children, aged 6 to 11, can choose among stellar birthdays, pirate raids, smoke signals, horrible junk, Jurassic Post, phantasmagorical insects, Detective Holmes and Science Magic. Children from 3 to 5 years old can celebrate with dragons and princesses or dogs versus cats.
