The museum is great and has a wealth of information. Unfortunately the audio guide skips a lot of artefacts and if it does describe something, it is very brief and vague. We should have looked into a guided tour of the museum.

Go if you are in Naples, definitely go if you been to Pompeii and or Herculeum. It completes the picture. Don't forget the audioguide. And plan on being there for a good half day.
