    Small museum interesting enough for adults, but unattractive... We could brighten it up and make it more attractive... The facilities are... Is the conference at the conclusion of the visit, accessible and interesting.

    a well done Museum: clear explanations; not too much reading! We quickly understand the importance of geothermal energy for the future. but we also discovered as early as the middle age, our elders have been able to control this energy... and that power has been able to tax it!
