im genuinely puzzled about what other people saw here to rate this so highly
i thought it was a complete waste of time and money - but so frustrating as it could, so easily, be much better
it is a small museum with 2 floors...More
I like museums where I learn things I never knew. I didn't know much about Mr. Volta other than his name gave us the words 'volt' and 'voltage'. So this was an interesting museum -- and in a beautiful building. It's easy to pop in...More
Alessandro Volta was a prominent scientist who generated for the first time electricity electrolytically .
Como is proud to be the home of Volta . The recognition by his patria came long after his death .
The Emporio is well designed , top floor was...More
This place is a must-visit for science-historians and those who wish to know about the development/invention of electricity. It is a tribute to Volta. For young students of science, too, a visit to this place would be an enriching experience.
Entrance is just 2 euros, but the museum is essentially a couple of show cases with old electric and other instruments used by Volta. If you are not an engineer or a science historian, this museum has very little to offer.
Stumbled upon the temple to Alessandro Volta while walking around Cpmo. Interesting building and exhibits related to his investigations and discoveries of all things electrical. Well worth the minimal admission fee.
For science interested people - see the world’s first battery (Volta column) and all kinds of ancient homemade equipment for making and measuring sparks and force of electricity /elektrochemistry).
2 short videos and a pamphlet with descriptions- but otherwise information wise very poor museum -...More
Brill. I'm an electrical engineer by profession and qualification and found this fascinating, Wonderful old exhibits which should interest you even if you're not an engineer. 240V mains-volts-worth. Highly recommended.
