Museum Garden

The Museum Garden is located in one of the internal courtyards of the Charterhouse, next to the Historical Gallery.
After some years of temporary exhibitions, the permanent project, devoted to the plants of Monte Pisano, is currently underway: the Museum Garden will be realized with about 30 arboreal/shrub species and over 40 herbaceous species selected in order to recreate some micro-environments typical of the Monte Pisano; the species will be chosen with different periods of flowering and fruiting to guarantee a pleasing appearance of the garden throughout the year.
The Museum Garden will then result in a multi-sensory space accessible to all, a relaxing place for visitors and a point of reference for the knowledge of the plants of our territory both through free fruition and through guided educational activities.
The Museum Garden redevelopment is part of the broader project “Requalification of green spaces and restoration of ecosystem services of the Carthusian Monastery of Pisa”, proposed by the Natural History Museum in cooperation with six sectors of the University of Pisa (Department of Energy, Systems, Territory, and Construction Engineering, Department of Civil and Industrial Engineering; Department of Civilisations and Forms of Knowledge; Department of Geosciences, Department of Agricultural, Food and Agro-Environmental Sciences and Agro-Environmental Research Center “E. Avanzi”) and funded by Fondazione Pisa.
