  • The Mav is one of the most interesting museums of southern Italy because it is just a few meters from the ruins of Herculaneum, allows you to propel tourists directly into the time of the eruption of Vesuvius with 3D movies and video very realistic. By evidence before or after a visit to the excavations!

  • We chose to only see the 3d movie, rather than pay for entry to the whole museum. We therefore cannot comment on the museum, but the dodgy computer graphics and lean educational value of the (5 minute...  more »
  • Several installations are not functional and you can easily skip a space dedicated to the frescoes and closed the curtains because there are no signs. A three-dimensional environment reproducing a square in the rain seems lacking. For the rest there may be more things of a certain type and less video which are interesting and well made. Remains a bit pricey but impressive.

  • It's evident any funding for this site has stopped. Many of the visuals seem to offer nothing as far as insight or information. There is one huge table with words floating around on it that make no sense, another one with letters floating around. The Vesuvius "3D" thing was okay but all the screens looks out of date, discolored and not calibrated to each other so it's a bizarre spectacle; not to mention the 3D glasses are horrendous. Also, if using a Campania Arte card be vigilante at the front desk- the guy tried to swindle us for 10€ saying it isn't one of the free sites- it is.
  • The concept of this museum is a great one but funding for it has obviously dwindled. The first time I went everything worked great but the next year it was obvious that it needed some work. The translations to English (and perhaps other languages) are not very well done.
  • Very disappointing. Spend your money on the sites instead. And I guess on the museums in Naples.
  • this place is kindof meh.. maybe in the 90s it was cool technology. Its worth a visit though, especially if you have already been to Pompeii or Ercolano
  • Not really informative. Very dark. Better off spending the 10€ on a guide at the actual site.
