A dip into the past through a multisensory experience, to learn and discover in detail, a dive into the past through a multisensory experience, to learn and discover in detail the historical realities of Herculaneum and Pompeii before the eruption of the Vesuvius 79 AD. This is the mission of the MAV structure that was created in the heart of Herculaneum and provides new ways of using cultural. The visitor will be transported in a virtual context faithfully reconstructed by the use of modern technologies. The journey begins after passing a sort of ancestral door dematerialized bodies in streams and connective intelligence leading to the discovery of names and faces of the ancient Herculaneum, with which it is aware of the history of the community and their way living.

We read a lot of reviews that bash this place. Those people must have walked through quickly without taking the time to watch and listen to the exhibits, which it easy to imagine happening. As 2 adults with no kids in tow, we were able...More

Realy interesting 3 D displays. The setting and music makes it even more real. After the exhibit you are a movie of the eruption of Vesuvio. It makes you understand the important part of history so much better. Entrance fee only €8

We enjoyed this small museum and the way the technology was used to transform the ruins as they are now back to how they were before the eruption. Most of the explanations are also in English. Don't expect ultra high tech wizardry - I am...More

We chose to only see the 3d movie, rather than pay for entry to the whole museum. We therefore cannot comment on the museum, but the dodgy computer graphics and lean educational value of the (5 minute) movie constituted a bit of a disappointment. The...More
