Ok I understand Pompeii relics belong to Italy and to Italians....but how about some more consistent English signs at this Museum? Strangely there were dual language boards in SOME rooms but not in the area of Pompeii earthenware and metalware relics. This completely destroyed my experience of this section. Also...the Museum provided NO pamphlet in English. I paid 13 euros??... More

We wanted to see Herculanum area and after going through the museum we found it was closed and was told it would be open tomorrow. This was very disappointing. We went to the front desk and asked if someone could quickly let us have a look as earlier in the day we had been to Herculaneum and were really keen... More

Very worthwile to visite before going to Pompeii and/or Herculaneum. Go early in the morning than there are still audioguides available. The museum is very impressive, unfortunately quite a lot of areas are closed.

Wonderful museum to visit, it is worth putting up with the nastiness of Naples to visit this Museum especially with all the artefacts that were retrieved from Pompeii, seeing both places is a must.

Certainly worth visiting particularly if you have visited Pompei, you will see a model of the site and appreciate just how vast it really is. Many collectives relating to Pompei complete the whole experience. This is a large museum displaying various collections, you can easily spend many hours meandering around, but in my view not cheap particularly if you are... More

This museum was quite nice to look around. Part is having work done on it which was a shame but the rest of it was very interesting! We spent approximately 4 hours here and saw a lot. Would definitely visit again.

This was our second trip to Naples. A one day stop on a cruise. Last time, we spent the day going to Pompeii (which we absolutely loved). This time, we stayed in Naples and decided to take the hop-on hop-off bus. During the first ride, we passed this museum and heard that most of it was dedicated to objects found... More

The museum contains a fabulous collection of ancient Roman sculpture, mosaics and wall-paintings from Pompeii, together with Greek and Roman pottery, glassware domestic items etc. Not to be missed!

The exhibits within the National Archeological Museum of Naples are some of the finest specimens of their type which you would see in any archeological museum. It is mind blowing to see such ancient relics from Pompeii and the Naples environs as well preserved as they are. However, little has been done to present these in a professional manner and... More
