This game-show is particularly suitable for families, especially for children aged 7 and up, and children of all ages: different activities can please all participants with different interpretations.
In "Vox Horti", for example, stories and visions will suddenly plunge you into a world of holograms, architectural projections, plays of lights and sounds, labyrinths. The itinerary, with a compelling formula, narrates in various stages, nature in all its forms through artistic, scientific, literary, historical and intriguing multimedia games.
Do not miss the passage in the Ancient Greenhouses of the Villa, which date from the late 1800s: you will find an exhibition of flowers, plants and essences of the territory.
A particular path is dedicated to the little ones with an interactive fairy tale that helps to recognize the essences: decode the Qr-Code thanks to your smartphone (we suggest you to install an app to read the codes) that will make videos appear on the device with animations for a fun treasure hunt.
The Museum also has a kids area to color fish and other aquatic creatures that will then "magically" come alive, animating and swimming in a large virtual lake.
