“Adds another dimension to the ruins, but not really worth the journey”

Antiquarium of Boscoreale
Attraction details
Reviewed October 22, 2012

The antiquarium is about 20 minutes walk from Boscoreale station (well signposted once you are on the route). We were disappointed to find that the adjacent villa was not open to the public - this was an agricultural villa so would have been an interesting contrast to the patrician villas we had seen already.

The museum itself has some interesting exhibits on the natural and farming background to the Roman ruins and has one or two nice pieces, but frankly, after visiting Stabiae and Oplontis we were too tired to get the most out of the museum. Without the villa, I am not sure it is worth the effort of changing trains several times followed by a 40 minute round walk mainly along a busy road.

The past came back to life by magic. There are the remains of food (bread, grapes, apples and charred petrified ..), containers, nets and fishing gear ... shells, reconstructions of the river Sarno, ancient statues still covered with paint... Wanderfull, not to be missed!

If Boscoreale,2km north of Pompeii is famous for its vineyards of Lacryma Christi and its treasure of 109 items of silverware buried by its owner before the Vesuvius eruption and found in a winetank,very few people visit its Antiquarium,an archaelogical museum with finds from Ercolano,Pompeii,Oplontis,Stabiae but also a museum of the natural history of the area in the ancient times.
The first room illustrates the Vesuvius area in the Roman period and the main human activities(textiles,medicine,perfumes,religious world..)
The second room exhibits items found in the nearby villae rusticae and at this time is held a very interesting exhibition on plaster casts(casting techniques used at the Vesuvian sites).

entrance fee:5,5 euro valid one day for Boscoreale,Oplontis,Stabiae

hours:1st November-31th March:8:30 to 17:00,till 19:30 in Summer,closed on 1st January,1st May and 25th December

via Settetermini,15 Boscoreale

Adjacent to the museum stands the VILLA REGINA,a typical roman farming settlement for the making of wine,closed to visit when I was there.
