    Fascinating and free!! Awesome and interesting experience! It IS hard to find! See photos for directions! Enter into the university, up the stairs to the right, down a long hall (students studying!) and enter!

    Nice interactive museum. Must stop and interact with each station to get full experience. They have a free tour of the small insect section takes about 30 mins and is very interesting thanks to Cristian that explains everything. You can also touch some of the insects. Our 4 year old loved it. The planetarium was also lovely and interesting.

    Extremely interesting museum focused on the history of medicine, and in Naples, in particular. Many unique and fascinating medical tools are displayed. A guided tour in Italian brings the highlights to fore. Unfortunately, the historic pharmacy was closed for restoration when I visited, but enough to see otherwise to make the trip.

    Somewhat difficult to access, as there is a large iron gate that protects the entire complex of the Incurabili, but a guard called and museum and let me in. Well worth the effort. Not to be missed if you are interesting in the medical field and/or history.

    Lovely little museum, situated in beautiful quiet gardens. Only small, but there are a few other museums in the same area that i believe are ran by the same people that you can buy tickets for at a very reasonable price (we also visited the anthropology, zoology and physics museum that are all in the same building a 5 minute walk away at the same time)

    The vast majority of the information at all the museums is in italian, but there is lots to look at and there are some english information books in some of the museums. It was very quiet when we visited (an hour or so before close) and it was nice to find a bit of calm in the city, particularly sitting in the gardens just before we left.

    Altogether definitely recommended, however these museums do not contain things like interactive activities etc. so bear that in mind

    One of the best mineralogical museums I've been too. Only of interest to those who love rocks and minerals. Big specimens also. with an addition of EUR 3 you can visit 5 museums at the university. Cheap entry. Shame there is not much publicity about it.
