The NatuRa Museum, also known as "Alfredo Brandolini" Natural Science Museum of Ravenna (Museo Ravennate di Scienze Naturali "Alfredo Brandolini"), is located in the village of Sant’Alberto, just a few kilometres away from Ravenna, close to the Po Delta Park. It is housed inside a historic building called Palazzone, once used as a tavern for travellers, traders and pilgrims.
The Museum contains a valuable ornithological collection donated by naturalist Alfredo Brandolini in the early 20th century, and many other finds donated over the years. It also includes a collection of shells of the Adriatic Sea, typical of the Romagna coast, and both local and exotic specimens of reptiles and mammals.
The Museum houses one of the Visitor Centres of the Po Delta Park (“San Vitale Pinewood and Pialasse of Ravenna” station). The station is an information and documentation point for visitors, as well as a starting point for hikes, rides or trips by electric minibus. It is possible to make both free and guided visits to the Museum and excursions in the Park.
