A wonderful experience with all the best murals, mosaics and art from Pompeii in an excellent exhibit. They also have a great selection of ancient sculptures that give you a good idea of the scale of the Roman baths.

$13 euros and no apparent outline of exhibits unless I pay for a tour? Later as I left there is a cheap photocopy of a map at an info desk, perhaps the staff who took my money could give this to guests. Many areas closed, courtyards closed. Pompeii exhibit good but again should be better! Too bad, such potential.

The museum is full of artifacts recovered from Pompeii. Full of more stuff than you can possibly see on one visit. If you get the audio guide, you can get a better sense of what you're looking at. It's less overwhelming that way. If you go to Naples, this is a must-do. Especially if you plan to see Pompeii as... More

The museum is impressive with all the artifacts it holds. There is a lot so some rooms get overwhelming. A must see prior to visiting Pompeii.

I was particularly fond of the gigantic statues. My wife's main interests at this museum were the amazing mosaics from Pompeii. We skipped the "secret cabinet" because we had our young kids with us.

Many (maybe all?) of the artifacts presented here are from Pompeii and Herculaneum, which were destroyed (generally intact) by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. We suggest you visit Pompeii and Herculaneum first, before visiting this Museum. We also suggest you take along a good audio guide (or HIRE a local guide) to Pompeii and for the Museum. A... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this museum. I’ve been to Pompeii, so it was nice to see pieces here that weren’t displayed there.

We took the train from Rome to Napoli for a day trip. We enjoyed the gigantic statues they have in the museum. They also have a small area where you can see from a balcony the rooftops of some of Napoli.
