The Galileo Thermometer is an elegant temperature reading device that every science geek needs. It is a sealed glass cylinder that contains clear liquid and glass bulbs that are all different density. As the temperature changes, the balls rise and fall, giving you a temperature reading.

The temperature gauge is read from the engraved metal discs that hang off each bulb – if a bulb is floating in the middle, that is the current temperature, or if some are at the top and some at the bottom the temperature will between the bulbs on either side of the gap.

There are 4 sizes of Galileo Thermometers available. This one is 28cm tall with 6 glass balls (temperature range 18°C to 28°C). This is the perfect gift for mum, dad, or any nerdy adult as it is a beautiful piece to put on display.

Great shopping experience

Very happy with the Galileo Thermometer for my granddaughter's birthday. Out of stock at first, but Australian Geographic notified me as soon as it was in stock and it was easy for me to purchase. Delivery was very fast and communication from store excellent.
