While the trips to the archaeological sights are a must-do, visiting this museum should be on your list! You'll get to see the sculptures of the Farnesi collection, mosaics, frescoes and everyday objects from the sites. If you're lucky, the secret room will be open to view all the erotic paintings and objects for the "faint of heart". It's a... More

The museum has the great treasures from Pompeii and Herculaneum (sculpture, mosaics, fresco painting, objects and erotica) as well as a great number of Roman sculpture of utmost importance. Every time I go to Naples I return to see these works anew.

A bit boring after visiting Pompeii and Herculenium. Visit these instead. The forbidden room is quiet an eye opener though!

Most of the incredible mosaics from Pompeii are here. They are beautiful, irreplaceable works of art. There are no longer artists capable of reproducing such intricate pictures using chips of glass. Why then are they displayed in such shocking conditions? The entry fee was accepted only in cash. Why? With hundreds of visitors annually one would expect that they would... More

We arrived on Wednesday at lunchtime and were amazed to have this intriguing museum and its unsurpassed collection of antiquities almost all to ourselves for the entire afternoon. Seeing the treasures from ancient Pompeii was great preparation for our journey to the excavations the following day. The ancient mosaics and frescoes were as bright and colourful as the day they...

It's difficult to describe, and more than that, to trully realise what life was back then... But the works people once created sometimes simply take the breath away.. Amazing! I actually would love to come again once I happen to return to Naples.

Easy access to all exhibits,but a few exhibits were not available to view. e.g. (model of Pompeii). Staff helpful, and local area nice for lunch.

Do not miss this if you go to Naples. Go before you visit excavations. The best artifacts from Pompeii and Erolano are here .
