Any museum built by volunteers who love the products shown inside, gets my thumbs up
May 2018 • Friends
The museum is located in a High-Tech looking surrounding, not in any very central location but still a location very suitable to the brand, considering it's run by volunteers.

A free stroll inside costs 5 Euro. It includes freely playing around with the computers, strolling around the museum and looking at lots of apple's history including all the important landmarks which makes apple what it is today.

The info on the computers is basic and there's no background stories but i guess that is what the bit more expensive guided tour is for.

All in all a nice experience for Apple/computer lovers.

Again, regards to the people maintaining and keeping the museum thriving on a limited budget.

So disappointing... Forget it...
May 2018 • Friends
I have always been a fan of the Apple brand. So it seemed natural to visit this museum located in front of the cruise terminal. First of all his entry is extremely poorly signposted, it's a pity.
But above all: we find a lot of Apple products since the beginning of the brand, and especially with the arrival of the famous Macintosh in 1984. Everything else follows but, very bi-bitly, the list stops at 2009 and the first iPhone while there have been many products since, including the iPad.
The items are simply placed on tables, without any museography or special effects. It's flat, not very didactic and rather boring.
We are very far from the creative DNA of the apple brand and it is a disappointment.
Visit absolutely not recommended ...

A person who writes these things can also define himself 'Apple fan', but does not have Apple in his heart, and does not respect the work of many volunteers who, gathered in a non-profit association, have been working laboriously for 16 years, without financial resources, to collect, witness and tell the story of this great company. There is superficiality in this judgment, which fortunately is one of the few, because all the others have been able to see and understand the substance, and not the appearance, of our museum. In our museum you will not find special effects, you can find the concrete things, fatigue and sweat to get them, and the best thing you can do is help us in our mission. We exhibits objects that come exclusively from donations from all over the world, some items are missing because they have not yet been donated. The museum is the only one acknowledged by Apple, and is the only one to exhibit the products in function and usable by the public. Nowhere else in the world can you turn on and use computers like the Apple II, the first Macintosh, the Lisa, and all the major Apple products, instead of looking at them behind a glass. Did you notice that there is the first commercial sign used by Steve Jobs for the launch of the Apple II? Have you seen the toolbox used by Steve Wozniak to build the Apple 1? Not to mention all the rest you find in the museum, unfortunately limited by the available space, which allows us to show only a small part of what we keep in the warehouses, where more than 10,000 products have been collected and cataloged. As for the lack of signs, it is forbidden to put them in the area where we are, but we are trying to overcome this prohibition. Those who want to see the latest Apple products can find them in an Apple store or at a friend's house, for all the rest there is only our museum where you can see and try them. I suggest as always to get our free app 'All About Apple' to obtain a more complete description of what we exhibit. But the best thing to do is to take a guided tour, which is the only way to fully experience the cognitive and historical experience of the museum, accompanied by an expert person able to tell anecdotes and curiosities that otherwise are not perceivable through a normal visit. Una persona che scrive queste cose può anche definire se stesso 'Apple fan', ma non ha Apple nel cuore, e non rispetta il lavoro di tanti volontari che, riuniti in una associazione no profit, da 16 anni lavorano faticosamente, senza risorse economiche, per raccogliere, testimoniare e raccontare la storia di questa grande azienda. C'è superficialità in questo giudizio, che per fortuna è uno dei pochi, perché tutti gli altri hanno saputo vedere e capire la sostanza, e non l'apparenza, del nostro museo. Gli effetti speciali vanno cercati altrove, qui puoi trovare le cose concrete, fatica e sudore per ottenerle, e la cosa migliore che si possa fare è aiutarci nella nostra missione. Il nostro museo espone oggetti che provengono esclusivamente da donazioni provenienti da tutto il mondo, alcuni oggetti mancano perché non ci sono ancora stati donati. Il museo è l'unico riconosciuto da Apple, ed è il solo ad esporre i prodotti in funzione e utilizzabili dal pubblico. In nessuna altra parte del mondo è possibile accendere e usare computer come l'Apple II, il primo Macintosh, il Lisa, e tutti i principali prodotti Apple, invece che guardarli dietro ad un vetro. Ti sei accorto che c'è la prima insegna utilizzata da Steve Jobs per il lancio dell'Apple II? Hai visto la cassetta per gli attrezzi utilizzata da Steve Wozniak per costruire gli Apple 1? Per non parlare di tutto il resto che trovi nel museo, limitato purtroppo dallo spazio disponibile, che ci permette di mostrare solo una minima parte di quello che conserviamo nei magazzini, dove sono stati raccolti e catalogati oltre 10.000 prodotti. Per quanto riguarda la mancanza di insegne, è vietato metterle nella zona dove siamo, ma stiamo cercando di superare questo divieto. Chi desidera vedere i prodotti Apple più recenti può trovarli in un negozio Apple o a casa di amici, per tutto il resto c'è solo il nostro museo dove poterli vedere e provare. Suggerisco come sempre di utilizzare la nostra app gratuita 'All About Apple' per avere una descrizione più completa di quello che esponiamo. La cosa migliore però è quella di fare una visita guidata, che è il solo modo per poter vivere appieno l'esperienza cognitiva e storica del museo, accompagnati da una persona esperta in grado di raccontare aneddoti e curiosità che altrimenti non sono percepibili tramite una normale visita.

A must for any Apple Fan!
Aug 2017 • Couples
A journey into the Apple history - really suggested to anyone that is an Apple fan, or just interested to the topic.

The Apple computers showed are working, i.e. you can interact with them and discover how they evolved over time.

The museum is managed by volunteers, get in touch with them to double check when it's open. I would suggest the guided tour.

3 minutes by walk by the Cruise station.

Very friendly owner. Every Apple model from their beginning.
In the 'area 51' you'll find a lot of nostalgy with working game computers (wich you can try)!

Great museum for all technology enthusiasts
Feb 2017 • Solo
Visited on the 4th Feb from London.
I had seen this museum online and advertised in the port. I am always on my iPhone so is definitely my type of museum. The museum is fantastic. They have all the old iMacs and you can use all of them. Got to play some old programmes I never had the chance to before. There is a free app to download and it has videos and lots of information. I had a wonderful time and highly recommend this museum. If like me, you are on a Costa cruise, it's only €5 entry and less then 5 mins walk from the port so perfect for time ashore.

Excellent. A must to visit

I found occasionally the museum looking on internet the attraction nearby. Managed by a No Profit organization founded by a group of friend fascinated by Apple Technology it is a extreme interesting museum to visit also for not expert in informatics. The person who welcomed us was very kind in guiding us trough the museum and explaining very interesting stories behind each machines or device.
Also an app is available for your phone to guide you during the visit.
definitely suggested

Lots of attention from the people working there, very good app for guided tour. Amazing experience. All computers are functional. You can touch and play with everything. Very low-priced-ticket for what they offer.

You can see tons of computer here. Nearly all of them are working. I've played Donkey Kong on an apple computer from the 70's or 80's! It was looking exactly the same as in the movie "Pixels" Also there is a robot from the 70's or 80's.
A friendly guy walks you through the museum and explains every computer in Italian. He should take a little bit more care about his hygiene - he was smelling.
But at all it was a great experience. It was kind of a fail that he used a samsung phone at that my iPhone froze when I tried to download the app of the museum. Yes, there's an app!

I've promissed the guy in the museum that I will write a review. This was one month ago - here is it! Better late than never.
