“Nice collection”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Very nice collection of Greek and Roman statues and artifacts. Great finds from Pompei as well. One gets a better feeling of how people in Pompei lived like than in the actual excavations in Pompei!

“Great museum - shame about the dreadful lack of signage”
Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

The mosaics from Pompeii and Herculaneum are worth the 8 euro admission charge alone.

It's such a shame that, like elsewhere in the Naples and sorrento areas, the Italians show such little regard for the multitude of English speaking visitors. Directional signs are virtually non existent , hardly any exhibits have notices in English and few of the attendants speak a word of English. On sunday I estimate that about 80 per cent of visitors spoke English.

Like other reviewers we found many of the rooms closed for no obvious reasons or only open in the morning.

That said the museum is a must - but do your research in advance

“A world class museum”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

The Faranese collection of Roman and Greek sculpture is amazing, equal to the best that can be found in Rome or anywhere else. The best of the roman frescos and mosaics from Pompeii and Herculanium are also to be found here so don't go to those sites without visiting here too.

“We really enjoyed it after our tour of Pompeii”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Missed seeing the replica of Pompeii. We could not find it. The room with the mosaics were great. The "Secret Room" was mild by todays standards.
