  • The idea of the place is great: It tries to bring the ancient Roman city to life through multimedia projections. Unfortunately they charge more to see this poorly laid out 'show' than to see the genui...  read more »
  • A great Museum that allows to have a better notion of what were the remains of the Naples region at the time. Too bad that some places like Rome don't have not one! Very well done, not to be missed!

  • Very nice, made with care and particularly attractive, charming 4 d video of the story of the eruption.

  • 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
  • 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.
  • Not really informative. Very dark. Better off spending the 10€ on a guide at the actual site.
  • If you don't speak Italian you may not get much out of this museum. Some people had an audio guide although we were not offered one so it may only be in Italian. While there was information about most of the exhibits in several languages, it was brief, very badly translated (seemingly by machine, though worse than you'd get from Google translate) and occasionally incomplete. Many of the exhibits were out of order (displays or touchscreens not working) or were in need of maintenance (dirty or misaligned screens). Some of the virtual reconstructions of buildings were interesting, but few of the much vaunted interactive exhibits were to us. Probably not worth the €7.50 admission. We didn't opt for the €5 extra for the 3d Vesuvius eruption but it was likely more of the same.
  • To so exiting as published l with old fashioned 3d
