This museum has a lot of the artifacts from Ercolano and Pompeii along with other exhibits. It was very interesting. We spent 1 1/2 hours there.

We visited this museum a day after our visit to Pompeii. It was the perfect compliment and helped fill in the gaps in our knowledge. A couple of the galleries were closed but we managed to spend over 3 hours without even realizing. The frescoes and relics were amazing. Go slowly and take in the history. There is plenty to see.
The audio guide is a a little light on with information. Could give so much more.

If yur done with Pompeii and exploring the archaeological sites around the region which is Pompeii Herculaneum and stabiae then this will enhance your knowledge of antiquity by way of sculptures and frescoes found and house during this period. However whilst the array of sculptures was impressive and the frescoes a good addition to experience of range of frescoes I didn't find that overall it added value to visit the museum which is a grand old building very sparsely laid out collection and not what I believed would be a great in house collection and with reference to Margaret of Austria and the Farnesse collection apparently she left the museum a great deal of collection to be housed but this was no great contribution to warrant such applauditz.

When we came to the museum we had heard amazing stories of the relics and frescos from Pompeii and that any complete visit to Pompeii or Ercolano needed to include a visit here. Unfortunately most of the galleries were closed, including the secret rooms and pieces were laid out without any thought to presentation. The frescos were underwhelming, very few pieces, though the the roman sculpture collection was quite impressive. If you have some time to spare maybe chance a visit, or if you just want to cool off from the hot sun.

We stopped here as part of our day trip to Pompeii with Dark Rome Tours. First off, it was not in the best of areas and the homeless people and graffiti on the walls across the street made us initially worried. HOWEVER, when we entered the museum it was spectacular. The artifacts were some of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. The "Secret Cabinet" was a newish exhibit that included artifacts from the red light district in Pompeii and Herculaneum. This was my favorite part, as it showed some of the most entertaining artifacts. The mosaics were stellar and the Farnese collection was full of some of the best preserved sculptures I've seen. Remarkable. At this time of year there was no line. I only wish I had had more time here.
