  • Visited today with our girls aged 3 and 1 year. Very recommended to spend 2 or 3 hours admiring the insects in the cases and participate in the lab where children can familiarize yourself by touching some living specimens. Everything is well documented, described and illustrated.

  • I took my son on a day of vacation to make a something different that wasn't the usual cinema. The Museum is fairly easy to find, good parking. The staff is nice and helpful. That day the Museum was practically empty so we could turn it calmly in an hour and a half. It is a former bacchificio Museum of insects and therefore the wider section is dedicated to silkworms with numerous samples from all over the world. Others live and dead insects present in the showcases are not many but still in good number to spend an afternoon with a child. Very cute was included in cinema 4 d, too bad there isa was the chance to try out the lab. We hope to be expanded in number of live insects you can see

  • I visited Esapolis last Sunday with my husband and 4 year old daughter. Without planning it, we arrived just before he started the laboratory on insects (costs 1 euro more than the ticket) and decided to participate. The Guide, a guy good and personable, explained the main characteristics of insects and it showed someone "live". The opportunity to touch various insects, including stick insects, and spiders, thrilled the many children present! Afterwards we visited the exhibition of the Museum, which I found interesting and well done, especially for the part related to silkworms. A bit of improvement, in my opinion, the section devoted to bees: the room is quite bare and "dusty". Overall though, the Museum is definitely advisable for families with children, to spend a few hours relaxing and interesting.
