We first visited this museum in 1980. Little has changed since that time, but the sculpture of the Veiled Christ is well worth a second visit. The lower level houses the two "anatomical machines" that are an attraction, though a bit more in the category of oddities than scientific illustrations.

The Veiled Christ is my favour sculpture. It alone is worth the entry fee to the chapel. San Martino has depicted Christ so sensitively and the way the body is able to be seen through the veil is magical. The nail wounds, the enlarged temple vein, the sword wound to the side are all present. You can't take photos. The... More

Definitely beautiful marble sculptures but not being able to take pictures is a bit disappointing at this day and age of social media where generates a lot of publicity for the places. The chappel is very small and u can feel rushed to do it quickly very easily...

There is the famous Cristo velato sculpture that we all wait on line to see..... and it's spectacular. BUT!!! Look at the sculpture titled "The Disillusion". Look closely and look at the net. That's the "other" masterpiece that deserves just as much attention as the famous Christ.

As well as the famed Veiled Christ lots of other good things. Of the Veiled Christ sculpture I won't say anything other than I don't think there is anything like it. But the Chapel of Sansevero has lots of other goodies in terms of sculpture and the story of the man who made it as it is. The audio guide... More

Hidden in a small chapel, the Veiled Christ is an exquisite life-like sculpture and a must see!! No pictures are allowed. Downstairs are two models (male/female) with bones, veins etc. that may not be suitable for small squeamish children.

It's the main reason for visiting Naples. This extraordinary sculpture is totally breathtaking...it's as if the body of Christ is covered in tissue - but it's not! It's gnuine marble. Deeply, deeply moving.

Cappella Sansevero is simply unique. This is one of the tons of attractions - if I can define so - you must visit in Naples.

Although small and expensive in comparison to most touristy attractions in naples this is a MUST SEE. I'm not a religious person or even in to art however the sculpture is phenomenal to say the least. When you walk in it seems just a small church and once you've seen the sculpture for a number of minutes and read all... More

I came this place to see Veiled Christ, the master piece. It is amazing work. I rate only 4 stars because this place is very small and only one or two master piece.
