Visit with audio guide
It is always possible to visit the BioMa independently, without a reservation, during the opening hours of the Museum (FIND times and prices here). To avoid overcrowding the virtual immersion experience in the varied environments of the Re- serve, along the BioMa path you will find a number of simple explanatory panels and over 150 species, which inhabit the Reserve are represented in their environment without ‘identification labels’. For this reason, the WWF staff will provide you with two aids to your visit before you begin: an audio guide (which is available in Italian and English) that will enable you to find out more about marine environments and to discover many curiosities about the sea creatures that populate them. You will also be provided with a detailed brochure that illustrates, environment by environment, all the habitats and species represented labeled with both their common and scientific names, to make identification easy.
Hunt for the treasures of the Reserve
While the adults listen to the extraordinary story of the marine biodiversity of the Gulf of Trieste, what are the children doing? They are playing, of course! Along the route of the entire BioMa, a number of the Reserve’s sea creatures will accompany them on a realistic hunt for the marine treasures of the Gulf of Trieste. Along every stage of the path, they will have to solve quizzes, riddles and tricky questions, keep their eyes and ears open, and above play! The treasure hunt is suitable for children aged 7- 8 but along with their parents it can be an opportunity for discovery and play even for the little ones … and a nice way to spend a couple of hours together on a rainy day. At the end of the hunt, by presenting the brochure with all the answers to the quizzes at reception, you will receive a nice free gift from BioMa!
SCHOOLS AND GROUPS
What better way to discover the rich biodiversity of the Marine Protected Area than to be ac- companied by the WWF staff biologists and naturalists, who will tell you details and curiosities about marine organisms and answer your questions? The guided tour of the BioMa lasts an hour and a half and can be requested by schools, groups, associations, by making an advance booking. Find out opening hours, prices and reductions for both the free and guided visits.
