  • Very educational, and I think lightweight and suitable for children from 12 to 16 years. Though it lacks many more explanations, you will not understand when to use red clock that they give you at the entrance to the 4 locations that you almost have to guess. And for the price of 1 now offer little €10 I think, seen it all. The 12-minute film at the end should be longer.

  • The MAV is a bit improved but could be increased signage along the route, for example near the bathrooms, then in front of a tent for an invitation to enter the space that opens up behind, etc. In addition to the ticket counter not being told, if not requested by the user, that there are different prices based on the visit to the Museum only or also to the video of the eruption. Matter of transparency. Prices might be exposed on a billboard. However there are several interesting points along the way.

  • This place gives additional value to the visit with its virtual visit and additional explanation of the origins of the vulcanic phenomenon.  more »

  • Good to get an idea of what the town was like before the eruption. Would recommend visiting the ruins first though.
  • After passing throught the gate theyturned me into a newt. ... But I got better...
  • Ok attraction but don't believe publicity material that says there are discounts for seniors. There aren't.
  • Great place to visit either before or after seeing the archaeological site. Shows how the town actually looked before the AD79 eruption.
  • Nothing special. Old technology 10€ each. Special 😱 If u have 1.5 hours to spend go straight to "Ercolano scavi"
