This museum contains the collection of Contessa Panciatichi-Ximenes, an avid bird collector and ornithological expert. Many of the specimens were collected between 1866 and 1911 in the area between San Gimignano and Certaldo. The whole collection was donated by the Marchesa to the City Council of San Gimignano in 1927 and was moved to the small church of San Francesco in Via Quercecchio in 1990.
