  • We enjoyed this small museum and the way the technology was used to transform the ruins as they are now back to how they were before the eruption. Most of the explanations are also in English. Don't e...  more »

  • 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 The Vesuvius "3D" thing was okay but all the screens looks out of date, discolored and not calibrated to each other so it's a bizarre spectacle; not to mention the 3D glasses are horrendous.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.
  • Nice atmosphere...
  • 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
  • Very disappointing. Spend your money on the sites instead. And I guess on the museums in Naples.
