Five of us drove to this lovely area. A tour had been planned for us,and we were all set with bug spray,hats,and water. The woman at the desk greeted us warmly, and along came our guide in his safari outfit with an open motorized golf cart. We drove through this massive area learning about birds,fish, and lots of different foliage Our guide explained everything to us, and questions that we might have had were answered. He spoke clearly to Ricardo, the little boy on our trip. We returned to the main building where we experienced a small museum that they have on site. They have some lovely items to buy in their gift shop.

This whole area is absolutely stunning. The wetlands are beautiful and well worth the walk. We were able to take some amazing photographs of the lagoons and migrating birds. The museum does an excellent job with its beautiful displays.

Really interesting place to visit to learn about the past and present management of the land and water of the Po delta region. Set in an area of natural beauty, and rich wildlife parkland.

This museum- won a European award in 1992. Situated about 40 kilometres from Ferrara, in the heart of the wetlands it is a wonderful example of industrial architecture from the 1920's in Liberty Style. Opened in 1925 by the king of Italy the plant is still in perfect working order and is responsible for monitoring the level of the waterways in the areas and was important in the 1930's in the massive land reclaimation schemes that were carried out in that period.Very interesting from both an engineering point of view and from a social/historical point of view. Rather off the beaten track perhaps but for anyone interested in exploring the Delta of the river Po, worth a visit. It is necessary to book in advance.

the museum is beautifully set up, with high quality displays and interpretation (it was European museum of the year a few years ago). There is much of interest there, and it explains the eco-system and evolution of the Po Delta very well. It is also extremely quiet - when we arrived in the mid morning we were the only visitors, which is a shame. The reception staff were hugely helpful, and tried to help us (as English speakers) since the interpretation is all in Italian. We were offered guide books in English and a range of background information, which made for a really interesting visit. Do go, encourage them to improve the interpretation, and afterwards allocate a good amount of time to walk among the lagoons for a great display of resident and migrating birds. A wonderful area.
