  • Interesting. The reconstructions of the rooms of the houses are definitely successful but without a visit to Herculaneum is meaningless. Cute movie in 3D. (3D quality leaves a bit to be desired). Definitely informative and helpful in understanding the explosion of Mount Vesuvius which has overwhelmed Pompeii and Herculaneum.

  • Go there it is very instructive to the most interesting is the Hall where they project the story of the eruption of Vesuvius with the devastation of Pompeii and Herculaneum and elsewhere. They make you put on a shelf simulating the earthquake. You can choose your preferred language to hear the whole story. Pity that the languages you want to select are not many, it also lacks the Portuguese, and Brazilian tourists I've seen a lot in the excavations. Visit it deserves!

  • Visit interesting. Good reproduction of events related to the eruption of Vesuvius although technologically far improved. Anyway all in all recommended visit.

  • 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 The Vesuvius "3D" thing was okay but all the screens looks out of date, discolored and not calibrated to each other so it's a bizarre spectacle; not to mention the 3D glasses are horrendous.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.
