Interesting museum

The museum is worth visiting if you like history in general. Indeed, the historic trains are very impressive and an essential part of the industrial revolution.

one of the best museums I have ever visited if you like railways, well thought out with 29 steam locos in the old erecting shop, very clean and staff so helpful, still more being added so can only get better.

It's one of the regions best kept secrets. It's almost as if they don't want people to go... On the afternoon we went we were almost the only paying visitors! We combined it with a visit to Herculaneum, walked to Portici (about 20 minutes at a brisk pace), and then after a superb lunch at Guiseppe Al Granatello took a... More

Located on the outskirts of Naples and readily accessible by train from the Central Station. Outstanding location with many excellent exhibits and well laid out. We were fortunate in being able to return to the city on a vintage train hauled by an electric locomotive built in the 1920's pulling a rake of passenger coaches of a similar era. Would... More

This was my 2nd visit to the great National Railway Museum at Pietrarsa, Naples, and there is so much detail, that a second visit is worthwhile.. The afternoon of my visit there was preparation for painting and decorating the main steam-engine hall, so work-people were covering the huge steam locos with thick clear plastic sheeting as protection from paint droplets....

After a long time being renovated, cleaned, re-arranged and generally tarted up this museum is well worth the 45-minute tram ride from Piazza Garibaldi. The museum covers a waterside site of about 3 and a half hectares with a number of pavilions. The first pavilion is dedicated to steam locomotives from the first Bayard which pulled the inaugural Napoli-Portici train... More

To tell the truth, I did not expect something extraordinary form this museum but I had to change my mind after visiting it. The place is big, peaceful and at the same time it has much to offer. Great impressions.

Today I visited it for my very first time and I have really good time here. If you are looking for a museum offering culture and history mixed with amusement and surprise, this is the right place.
