  • Very nice but not kept. Beautiful view from the Castle. Could be more interactive or better managed in my opinion, however the finds are beautiful and are mostly recovered at sea. Definitely worth a visit.

  • The Museum is beautiful and deserves high score. But then later I hear that "the section is closed, the staff of the municipality volcanological works only in the morning ... and we want to do?" Whereas we are in mid-July, which is the high season, and that for me was one of the most interesting topics (I don't have to explain why the Islands are interesting from the point of view of volcanology), I must say that we feel bad. Unfortunately confirms the stereotype of the South badly organized. At the very least could make afternoon tickets that cost less ... or maybe keep the museum open for good!

  • Beautiful, beautiful location that already is an open air museum, unique exhibits many collections in various buildings, too bad there is so much information about routes to do say a little dated to the years 90 ' and stop before

  • Splendid, as m. World archaeological ... too bad the 70% of the visitors of the island doesn't see it, as well as many other hidden beauties of the island. In summary, a world heritage site

  • Beautiful Museum in a splendid panorama and beside the beautiful church of s. Bartolomeo Holds significant historical and artistic heritage, which is surrounded by the ancient Spanish walls of 1556 also of considerable interest. Inside the path is managed clearly and allows you to follow an itinerary through time. Of particular interest are the exhibits relating to underwater finds of ancient shipwrecks, the craters in excellent condition, the ori etc. .. Even in the absence of air conditioning your open Windows on the sea offer a fresh and pleasant atmosphere of the past.
