Visiting Pompeii is a must, but little of the best art still exists there. It has been removed and most of it now is now exhibited at this Naples museum. My wife is an artist and has constructed several mosaics. She was speechless (that's saying...More

I was excited to come here to see some of the artifacts from Pompeii. I was disappointed not to see a single cast. The "Secret Room" has sexually-related artifacts. There was not clear signage about this and we unknowingly wandered into this exhibit with our...More

We visited the day before going to Ercolano, then Pompeii. I’m undecided about which it’s best to do first. However it’s a must-do companion to the ruins. I only took off a point because so many things have descriptions only in Italian.

If you have gone to Pompeii or Herculaneum, a visit to this museum is essential, and it’s essential in any event for anybody interested in classical antiquity and its artistic legacy.

Queued for an hour in the rain but hey ho! Believe they could have a slightly better system for taking the admission charge - getting through that final stage didn't help the queue. Anyway once in it was really fascinating. I agree with other reviewers...More

This place is easily accessible by L1 subway (Museo stop) from the Naples Train Station (1.1e fare). It contains some impressive giant Roman sculptures, but more impressively mosaics, frescos and artifacts (all in excellent shape and in abundance) from both Pompei and Herculaneum. Don’t miss...More
