We did the 1hr tour and it was really interesting to learn about the history of gelato. The staff were incredibly nice and even helped us order a cab. Most importantly the gelato was amazing! €7 for the tour and 3 scoops of gelato!

Very interesting museum lead by a knowledgeable guide who included the kids in everything . The family gelato making was good fun, our two daughters 6 & 8 loved it, as much as the adults.P

Worth a visit. Took a tour when students on holiday so couldn't see how the ice cream is made. Guide informative ie showed old gelato machines, history, transportation and moulds but nothing was interactive, so the group just listened for less than an hour- chose...More
