  • Nice place nice Museum! Before opening an overhead shower very noisy!!! Hold your ears. Then we went to see the fumaroles and some splatter a bit. Trail full of more yum! And he says my daughter 6 years ... for a geothermic Museum there is bad if even the little ones can enjoy themselves, perhaps by seizing the fruits. All very interesting, from the history of works, from the material and especially by the talented Guide. Despite the fact both modern and interactive museum, with effective explanation, recommendations recommend a guided tour that allows you to merge to visit a beautiful location on the territory.

  • The Museum of Larderello is dedicated to the history of geothermal energy in all its aspects: from research to drilling, use of geothermal fluid systems for the production of electricity, heat and mechanical. A series of miniatures, models, photographs, videos, original tools and machinery show the transformation happened in 150 years of development of the chemical industry in the area. The Museum was founded in the late 50 's and it's now organized within a temporary structure, consisting of two domes, waiting to get back as soon as possible in its natural home: the Palazzo De Larderel, now restored. Leaving the Museum there is a widening: piazza Leopolda. This was and is the center of industrial life. Offices, homes and Church are the backdrop to the columns with the busts of founder Francesco De Larderel, his wife Pauline and the Grand Duke Leopold II, continuing the policy of his predecessors (careful exploitation of the Tuscan production), always considered with interest the borax industry.

  • Interesting media guides and materials for digging wells. Free entrance and, on request, possibility to attend the opening of a well deafening. The latter activity is only for groups of people (even 5-6). Ask at the entrance. Cost 2 euro.
