“Great place for a stormy morning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

Very interesting to see old photos of Limone and to read its history. It would be possible to spend almost a day there to fully appreciate it and view all the photo albums.

“interesting & informative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

We stumbled across the entrance around the back of the tourist Information office. Had passed a few times then decided to have a look. Free entrance and some lovely old photos and pictures of how limone and the surrounding areas looked years ago. There are also folders full of photos from previous years photo competitions which my husband found very interesting as he is very much into his photography! There was also a video playing explaing the previous history of the lemon production and its demise. The man in the museum was very polite and asked which language we would like the film played in. I sat for about 15 minutes and found really interesting. Worth a look if you find past history Interesting!

“Fascinating and Free”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

Well worth the visit and spending 20 or so minutes learning more about Limone. Some fascinating facts, well presented. Including the association with the Bond Film Casino Royale. Some great photos of the early years and objects from every day life. It is right in the heart of the town so you can't and shouldn't miss it.
