Exploring the cabinets of curiosities at the Fisiocritici Museum

Just down the block from the Siena Art Institute here in the city’s historic center, we visited the Fisiocritici Museum to explore their cabinets of curiosities.  The Accademia de’ Fisiocritici was founded in 1691, and their museum showcases diverse collections, packed with all kinds of objects and specimines in antique cabinets with handwritten labels: it’s a museum that belongs in a museum!
