It was nice to explore the park and Ramona was very inspiring guide. Our family learned a lot about different innovations of Archimede. The park is compact and great for max 1 hour visit.

Tecnoparco was a delight. 6 Euro entrance and worth every penny. We opted for the personal guide at no extra cost which brought the scale examples of Archimede’s inventions to life. If only children in England could be taught the fundamentals of science like this....More

Incredibly bad reception and service for Italy. Ok we can accept the content is not at the level of normal museums given the location and the cost of real antiques but nothing excuses the arrogant, dismissive bad behaviour of the team. If they do not...More

A highly interesting place with several interesting exhibits but with some effort as regards multilingual displays and a general clean up could be one of the most interesting and unique places in the area.
