La Manifattura dei Marinati offers a very interesting overview of the fish processing industry in Comacchio. There is also a small shop where you can buy local products and souvenirs.

Fascinating educational displays, and documentary film of eel harvesting, drying and smoking process in the Po Delta. Set in the industrial factory presently used today, integration with the town's history, and the factory marketing by Sophia Loren.

Very limited exhibits, but admission was cheap. Boat tour was more descriptive even if the eel processing facility was a mock up.

a great display of items used in the eel catching days out on the lagoon. The submerged boats are so ingenious. A work in progress at the present

Sounds like a fishy tale but this museum is very good. Quite how they make enough money to support the large displays and building I can't imagine but we enjoyed the morning there.
