    Very pleasantly welcomed in french, over a glass of Sicilian wine, which doesn't spoil anything. The wine is not included in the tour (free, you give what you want to the Foundation), but adds it in a welcoming and well designed reception area architecturally. The visit to the Museum was very interesting, informative and complete. The scientific description of the Etna volcano was superbly accompanied by a skimpy historical commentary. The illustrations in the form of live video or speed of the gas analysis are very convincing. The visit ends with a video animation of the phenomenon of vitrification of the city of Pompeii following the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius. Grabbing! Thanks to our guide. Congratulations!

  • Superb museum. Free entrance (leave a donation). Informative guide. Great coffee.
  • Informativ, good guide who spoke English well. Not so much for the children who didn't understand the language but good material in the museum. Perhaps it would be better for familys with small children if they've offered a shorter tour or just a quick look around without it. But the adults liked it very much. I would highly recommend it for anyone that's interested in learning more about volcanoes and the history of Etna.
  • Unexpectedly walked by this museum and decided to go in... Very good personal guide, with lots of information on the Etna and volcano's in general. Good food at the bar / restaurant!
  • The food was very good. Freshness products attractively arranged. The prices are slightly higher than the local average, what is fully justified. The ambiance is exceptional and the chef with passion. We were lucky to get a personal explanation of the Vuklanismus of the Etna. I'm very rarely reviews. I make an exception for this restaurant. It was very good!
