Trieste's Science Centre Immaginario Scientifico is a new generation science museum, with an interactive and multimedia set-up: hands-on exhibits allow visitors to literally touch natural phenomena, to experiment with physics and to personally live the pleasure of discovery; extraordinary exhibitions made up of images moving to the rhythm of music enable visitors to make virtual trips through astronomy, genetics, botany, meteorology, evolutions or the history of science.

There is also a planetarium, for guided tours to the heavens, and many activities that help approach science in an informal way: educational laboratories for schools, playful and educational activities for children, lectures and meetings with scientists, exhibitions, festivals and sleep-over parties at the museum.
IS is constantly evolving and expanding, with five centres in the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region (in Trieste, Pordenone and in the provinces of Pordenone and Udine).
