Details & Specs

Galileo Thermometer is a marriage of science and art.

Amazing! 400+ years ago, Galileo discovered that as a liquid's temperature changes, so will an object's flotation in it... the relative density. That's the science behind this cool Thermometer! Five hand-blown glass spheres (8 in 17" unit), each fitted with a metal medallion, float in a craftsman-blown cylinder. They rise and fall. You read the lowest sphere near the top, determining the room temperature to about 1 degree accuracy. Fascinating laws of physics!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gift, great price! Bought this as a gift after receiving one for a gift myself. Item came in perfect condition on a timely manner. Have seen these thermometers in stores at a MUCH higher price. Great at our cottage where the weather does change often.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very good novelty idea, worth it as such, but arrived damaged as explained above ( one of the inside "globes" was broken , which made a mess of the inside column of liquid. Please replace. Thank you.
