Flat Mr. Hunter's next stop: Florence

Galileo! (Galileo)
Flat Mr. Hunter hangs out with a bust of Galileo at the Institute and Museum of the History of Science, now called the Museo Galileo.  
They have some of Galileo's telescopes on display there, as well one of Galileo's fingers. 

Here Flat Mr. H is posing with some red rocking horses.  This is in the courtyard of the Uffizi Gallery.

And now Flat Mr. Hunter has made his way to the Museo dell'Opera Duomo.  This place is a lovely, airy museum that houses the original panels from Ghiberti's Gates of Paradise.
