Amazing little museum
Sep 2019 • Couples
The wife and I came here for something to do whilst staying in the area. I wanted to see the bears at the local enclosure five minutes down the road and wanted to see the museum first.

It’s a god museum, it has some good exhibits like a giant bear skeleton but the explanations are only in Italian. We got round this by using the google translate app and this, though not perfect, allowed us to translate the exhibits.

The lady who we bought the tickets from was lovely, we were the only people there as it’s late in the tourist season. She thanked us for coming when we left, we felt very special.

It’s a nice a nice museum and I recommend it, but have google translate downloaded on your phone.

A great way to learn about bears
Jul 2017 • Couples
Luigia is an extremely competent guide. She really loves bears and is able to transmit the love for those animals to the people that listen to her. We learnt so much about bears, i.e., the way they live and what is done and still needs to be done to protect them. It is not only a great place for kids, but also for adults! So if you go to Abruzzo (a great region with so much potential) go and see the faunistic area in Palena.

Very pleasant and instructive

We had a great time at MOM, even though the bear Caterina did not show up as she thought it was too cold to wake up! Luigia is a fantastic guide, she is very knowledgeable and is passionate about her job and Parco dellla Majella. She is also used to work with children and is able to interest and involve them. She opened the museum for us even out of the scheduled times. Definitely a must see!
