  • The building that houses the museum of the world's oldest volcanologist observatory is located on the Hill of the Savior, in a very panoramic position and houses not only eruptive material, bombs and other types of lava emitted by Vesuvius during the different eruptions, but also seismographs and other material useful to the development of volcanology as a science.

  • In spite of the fact that I have never been here before I have been trying valiantly to type in the business hours of operation for the benefit of the general public. But I really don't know what is going on because google refuses to approve my edit. This is the second time I do it and they still wouldn't approve it. I hope that the staffers who work here read my review some day and type in the hours of operation to help everyone. Thank you all for your courtesy.
  • It deserves 5 stars for the daring of the building and for the scientific peculiarity, unique in the days of the bourbon who built it, you have passed as directors the best volcanologists of Italy, including Mercalli, and for the time had scientific equipment At the forefront, scientific instruments and a rich minerographic collection are preserved. Unfortunately if you stick to the phone you can not get an answer that organizes a guided tour, I could visit with circumspection for the courtesy and amiability of a caretaker.
