It's a few years ago but we called in here and ended up mesmerised by the 'visuals'. Good for families ( very little walking needed ), educational and entertaining. Got an hour or so to spare ? Recomm... more »
Provides a good intro to the local and Pompeii ruins. Unfortunately we ran into some technical issues with some exhibits. Very friendly staff that was responsive. The hour we spent here provided very good foundational information for our later visits to the actual ruins.
The museum is small but very well planned. The museum itself shows ancient Heculaneum as well as today state of the places. It gives a nice impression of the life there. The 3D movie shows the explosion - it may be a bit scaring for little children, but well depicting the catastophe. Overall, I can only suggest everybody to see it.
