“Anyone who visits Pompeii or Hercoleum must visit this museum too”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Our trip to Italy included tours of Pompeii and Hercoleum, and our guide told us that the best of the original sculptures, mosaics and interiors of homes, shops and even the red light districts were at this museum. So, on our way back to the airport, we stopped here for a couple of hours, and we're so glad that we did. Yes, the tour guide told us that the original colors of the walls were deep reds and lapis blues, but hearing it is one thing, seeing it is quite another. The richness of the colors, the artistry of the paintings, the sheer magnitude of the sculptures were amazing. Really quite beyond our imagination. If you enjoyed the archeological tours of Pompeii and Hercoleum, then the National Archeological Museum is a must see.

“More artefacts here than at Pompeii.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

It seems that many artefacts from Pompeii are to be found here .. silverware, sugical instruments, tableware .. but don't let that put you off visiting Pompeii itself. It's also fascinating! Though how the brothel scenes are replicated in the museum's 'secret room' is questionable. Which is the original ?? I assume those in Pompeii.
Throughout the museum, the sculptures and mosaics reflect the Greek and Roman influence in the region. You will find pictures on the columns in the main hall of items to be seen in Herculaneum and Pompeii.
Certainly worth a visit.

“Best Museum in Napoli”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

To my mind, this is the best cultural attraction in Napoli where U
can spend a week, also perfectly organized. One of main attractions are mosaics from Pompei and related exhibition-- worse
to visit!

“Well worth a visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

This museum has so many wonderful pieces from Pompeii in it. Well worth a visit. All exhibits were open. The mosaics were amazing. An audio if you aren't on a tour is a worthwhile purchase.
