  • Quite an ‘old school’ museum with artefacts simply laid out to look at (so not much to engage small children). However the murals and statues, etc., recovered from Pompeii and Herculaneum were...

  • Very well presented museum, very well structured and easy to navigate. A piece of history, with a lot of art from Pompeii, but also general art from the history of the area.

  • Truly an amazing museum when it comes to the history of Naples, Pompeii and their culture throughout History. If you're grown up and don't have children with you, I recommend going in the morning to get access to the "mature" showcase on the upper floors. Said showcase has a last showing at 1:45 pm local time. I also recommend visiting Pompeii and its sister city Herculaneum first, ideally with an archeologist guide to explain the intricacies of the cities. Doing so will only increase your enjoyment of the museum.
  • Wow wow wow! One of the best museums I have ever visited. There are so many paintings and statues of famous people! You can find statues of Hercules, Artemis and Venus. The building looks very fine and it is very big. If you're in Naples and you're interested in the ancient Romans and Greeks, you have to check this museum out.
