    The Museum is interesting, explains the history of the area. The interactive parts attract the attention of even the smallest. I don't think he's boring, everyone can choose to dedicate the time it deems appropriate. We could also see a demonstration of operation of a well that there is a 2-minute drive to the Museum, visit with the Guide, €2 for adults. A simple thing, but couldn't understand the concept, even kids.

    We were visiting the geothermal Museum built in Larderello by Enel through a free tour through photos, explanatory panels and movies has geothermal energy and tells the fascinating story of Larderelle which develops thanks to the intuition of the French Francis De Larderel in early 1800 as a factory for extracting Borio (reality which sees develop around the work area the city with houses , Church, pharmacy, entertainment venues built by "master", with General life dictated rules with detailed descriptions of responsibility of Ministers-area managers of the factory-, pharmacists, priori, doctors ... and sees women work in the factory as early as 1830) reality that then is converted to 4 generation geothermal electricity production by count Ginori instead ... It is a course that is so charming that accompanies the visitor to discover a world unknown to many ... that is worth going to see.

  • 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.
