Muography has many possibilities ranging from imaging volcanoes to observing civil infrastructures, industrial targets, or even small-scale objects. G. F. Knoll has laid out the fundamentals of radiation detection and measurement of muon flux. However, what is still lacking is the testing and verification environments for muon detectors used in muography. This work will present a few thoughts on such a possible muography test and method validation site in terms of micro and macroscale validation environments and introduce one candidate location, Callio Lab, Finland.
