We paid full admission costs to find that half the building was closed and only the 2nd floor was open with no access to the 1st floor during our visit, which was what we had gone to see. We were not told this at the desk when purchasing our tickets on Wed 22 May 2024. The second floor contained mainly religious paintings which are not our cup of tea and it took us less than 5 minutes to view the whole 2nd floor. We felt completely ripped off and would not visit again, particularly as we had had to take the metro and a bus to get there.

This museum is isolated from the other tourist attractions. There used to be a Shuttle Capodimonte that runs hourly from Piazza Trieste e Trento near Teatro San Carlo but that has been cancelled since the pandemic. So you have to take a bus or walk (25 minutes) from the Museo metro stop or get a taxi. Perhaps because of this inconvenience, the museum is not that crowded. Since this used to be the summer palace, some of the state rooms are still furnished as such and they look pretty nice.

Splendid old pile with a huge collection, very poorly curated which hugely detracts from the experience — the captions for the rooms and the individual artworks are framed in a very dry, uninformative style that might be appropriate for a thesis but are totally unhelpful at an exhibit designed fir the general art-loving public. Also, the toilets are a disgrace!

Waste of time. The 2 main paintings boasted by this museum are on loan elsewhere now and there is no info on the website to indicate that Titian's Danae isn't there (unless it is buried from the homepage? But def not clearly made known like the carravagio). They are also carrying out works without screening off the room, so clouds of dust drift into the other rooms where visitors breathe it in and it is getting on the renaissance artwork they do have. I asked for my money back and the staff laughed. Feeling scammed with the taste of dust in the back of my throat.

Bring a lot of time: this museum is huge! And a phone to help you reading the labels.

On the second floor there is currently an exhibition linked to Caravaggio. They brought a lot of paintings out of their storage for it.
On the first floor there is their permanent collection which also includes porcelain, statues, furniture and even whole rooms.
The third floor was closed. Why? No idea.

The museum is currently being renovated. I hope they will improve the lighting (a lot of glare on many paintings), the labels (way to small, only in Italian) and the toilets!

Repurposed palace into Museo Capodimonte. Even with many treasures on loan to the Louvre, there was much to see & enjoy. I especially liked the armory & De Ciccio collection. Also, less crowded than most places.

There are some stunning artworks on display at this huge gallery to the north of the city centre. Far too much to see in one visit. I wish I'd stuck to the 1st floor, which had some really interesting pieces. However, I was tempted by my timed access to the 2nd floor which you are ushered around in a group. Again, some fascinating pieces, but you can't go around at your own pace and so might be stuck in a room which doesn't interest you that much or moved out of one that does. Visitors with young children, and those with mobility issues were rather poorly served. This is no doubt a staffing issue as it only involved 2 people to show around 40 people rather than have a steward in each of the many rooms.
There are some marvellous things to see - recommended.

Excellent museum but annoyed at the lack of English translations and context given compared to the Archeological Museum. Still a lovely collection of art. Glad I went for free the first Sunday of the month.

This place is HUGE so it’s probably worth looking at the floorplan and targeting what you want to prioritize in case you get too tired to see the whole collection. Like most of the art museums in Naples, the preponderance of the collection is Neapolitan Baroque and after awhile it started to look the same, but it’s still a solid collection in a really elegant, ornate space. The park outside looked gorgeous as well, but unfortunately we didn’t have time to explore it.

Very poor customer service we had tickets booked but was unable to make the time slot due to individual action at the airport we tried to change booking for 24 hours later but was told that we could not do this as per terms and conditions ( 3 other bookings made with same terms and conditions agreed to let us change booking times) we did not ask for a refund just to move booking forward 24 hours (the time we had requested did have 180 spaces available just one hour before so it wouldn’t have been any loss to the museum to accommodate us,
As I said at start very poor customer service
