Beekeeping Museum – Tools and working instruments

0
The Beekeeping Museum is located at the National Institute of Beekeeping and documents the historical and technical development of this type of farming. On display are tools and working instruments brought together over the course of time, thanks in part to donations. Among the objects are numerous models of beehives in use in different parts of Italy during the 19th and 20th centuries; tools used in beekeeping operations and honey production; wooden models of apiaries typical of different rural areas of Italy; anatomical models of the bee's body and some anatomical tables used in the past in the teaching of Apiculture at the Faculty of Agriculture of the University of Bologna. The German honey extractor (Rauschenfels model) dating back to the mid-19th century is one of the first ever used in beekeeping.
