An initial impression of the Archaeological Museum is how gargantuan it feels: larger-than-life statues and busts, grand stair cases and cavernous spaces. Most visitors probably head directly to the Pompeii exhibits (the "dirty pictures" are especially popular), but the extensive Farnese collection is stunning. Museum...More

Really cool collection of statues! A lot of original pieces from the city of Pompeii are in this museum, very beautiful. Especially the 3D reconstruction was very impressive. We have walked around for at least two hours. One big disadvantage; nearly all descriptions are in...More

Though we saw stunning wall and floor mosaics removed from Pompeii along with erotic paintings and other artifacts from that destroyed city, I expected more to be on display. The exhibits seemed like only a "teaser," based on what I thought would be here from...More

The majority of the treasures from the nearby archeological sites are found here. It was great to finally see what all was found at these sites all in a well organized museum.

Fantastic Museum. This was not originally on our itinerary but because Vesuvius was closed we had a free morning. Wish we had visited before going to Pompeii as it put Pompeii into perspective. So much of the interesting artefacts from Pompeii and Herculaneum were on...More

I highly recommend this museum. Extremely rich in master pieces, such as roman and greek sculptures, roman mosaics from Pompeii and many mores.

probably the best museum in naples. this place houses more artifacts from pompeii than what's in pompeii. the work here is exceptional, and the place is awesome. i highly recommend it, right in the heart of naples.

The Archeological Museum is a must see, especially if you are visiting Pompeii and/or Herculaneum. A large exhibit of the statues and artifacts found at these sites are displayed beautifully and bring to life the inhabitants who lived there in 79 AD. The mosaics are...More

I did not know it is closed one day a week. I was not there on a Tuesday. So worth seeing. There are amazing displays of so many things. Better stuff of Pompeii than Pompeii itself has.
