... that a place that houses some of the greatest archeological discoveries of all time is in such a rundown state. As other reviewers have said, the frescoes, the mosaics, the statuary, the artifacts, and the ceramics from Pompeii, Herculaneum, and other sites are spectacular! But you cannot see many of them, and those you can see are only accessible... More

A vast array of varied items on display: massive Roman marble statues, paintings and frescoes through the ages, historical pieces such as glassware, jewellery and such. A small exhibition of paintings, mosaics and sculptures to do with sex were pretty amusing, too. Worth a visit. No tour guide needed.

The sculptures alone are worth the price of admission, but then there are the mosaics and the paintings and so much from Pompeii and the other towns taken out by Vesuvius in 79 AD...So much of it was amazing that it was almost hard to grasp it all.

I suggest that you first go to Pompeii (I also suggest you read the book by Robert Harris it si a fast read and very exciting as it turns the 24 hours before Vesuvius erupted into a "day in the life" kind of story.... THEN go to the Museum as it will have the artifacts they found at Pompeii (Pompeii... More

Toured here on the way to Pompeii. Got to see the one mosaic that I have always wanted to see in person with the famous Alexander and Darius in battle from the House of Faun, Pompeii. So many marble statues (largest sculpture group from antiquity) that one can be easily overloaded by the quantity of work assembled here. One of... More

Amazing mosaics and frescoes from the whole region, the roman sculptures collection of Farnese. Not visiting it would be like going to London and not visit the British museum or going to Paris and avoid the Louvre.

If you enjoy visiting museums you will be knocked out the Archaeological Museum of Naples. Not an art museum in the traditional sense, this wonderful place houses many of the treasures rescued from Pompeii and Herculaneum. Security is lax, pieces are scattered throughout the facility, and the settings and presentations are not that special - the stars of the show... More
