If you are travelling to Pompeii and Ercolano, you shouldn't miss this: the museum houses most of the relics rescued from these ruins such as the Faun statue from the House of the Faun (Pompeii) or the huge fresco from Alexandre the Great. For history enthusiasts.

Check with the info desk as many areas are closed during the day (not enough security). We ended up going back later at night after 8pm (it closes at 10pm) and it was well worth it. Many mosaics and treasures from Pompeii are stored here.

I thought this museum was one of the best I visited in Italy. The appearance and building is a little on the shabby and understaffed side. Don't let that scare you away. The sculpture and Roman art was Amazing. If you want to see artifacts and art from Pompeii and the Baths of Caracalla, you'll be pleased. The mosaics from... More

The museum houses really stunning artefacts from pompeii and herculaneum - in Pompeii itself isn't much left, only a few replicas because everything was moved here. It is definitely must see for everyone visiting Naples. But be sure to check the opening hour before you come. The opening hours of the exhibitions aren't always the same as opening hours of... More

The mosaics, statues from Pompeii, Herculaneum etc are absolutely stunning - you really must see them. But, the surroundings are an odd mixture of the unkempt, untidy and old-fashioned. Firstly, it seems impossible to know in advance which parts of the museum are open. We wanted to see the classical stuff and were lucky that those galleries were open. But... More

We had stopped in Pompeii for a private tour on our way to Naples our last night in Italy. We were told you really couldnt go to Pompeii and not see the museum if you were going to be in Naples. This is 100% TRUE. You should absolutely go to this museum for the 8 euros it cost. Keep in... More

BE WARNED!! This museum is very unprofessional. The staff at the information desk were very rude and couldn't care less that 9 out of 16 areas were closed. No discount was offered. Management really need to take a good look at themselves and their staff. SAVE YOUR MONEY!! and buy a pizza or gelato.

We took a train from Sorrento to Naples to visit this museum to see the artefacts from Pompeii and the Herculaneum. On arrival at the museum we noticed that several of the exhibits were closed including the Pompeii exhibit, although the sign also said to check at the information desk. We asked the lady at the desk who informed us... More

We arrived at the museum and could see on the board at the front that some of the galleries where closed. We asked a member of staff when the other attractions would be open and he just shrugged his shoulders as if to say 'who knows'! The statues and sculptures are really interesting being the best of what was recovered... More
