“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

A taxi ride away from the city centre but sure worth it - what an amzing collection of European art gems! I particularly liked how they had hung art together sorted by topic or interest, for example - unusual! Certainly a nice change from hectic and noisy streets in town during any trip to Naples.

“Excellent collection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Superb collection of art at only a short bus ride from the center (Museo Archeologico for example). The only con is probably that they have too much beautiful things to see. So after three hours of walking down the rooms in the former Royal Palace (make sure you see the exorbitantly richly decorated Palace rooms as well) we where quite satisfied/ exhausted without having seen half of the collection.
I didn't appreciate the contemporary collections, or maybe the contrast with the renaissance works was too big.

“Beautiful Art Gallery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

Spent 3hours with Marie Chiacchio of Context Travel in this beautiful former Royal Palace.
She gave us a well informed tour and made this visit most interesting.
The art work is mainly from the Renaissance period but there are some major artists.
the galleries are well lit the art work is wonderfully displayed.
The Royal Apartments contain some beautiful objects and the Ball Room is outstanding.
There is also a wonderful collection of majolica.
The highlight of the museum is it's Caravaggio painting
This a definite museum to visit in Naples

“The quiet Caraviggio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

The Caravaggio paintings are just wonderful.
Get there about 10am and follow the guide.
The walk form the port of Naples is fabulous and then you arrive in a beautiful garden, quiet, cool and full of families, playing games and just having a lovely time

“Good, but expected more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

I went to the museum after being disappointed by Pompeii and to see the mosaics and frescos which had been brought here. It was very interesting to see the ancient statues etc but felt that this museum could have been so much better. The audio guide at 5 euro only seems to cover a very small part of the exhibits and there was no clear route around the museum.

I would have liked it if maybe the audio guide included the smaller exhibits in the glass cases of implements discovered durings excavations etc, or at the very least a paper guide could have been produced.

It was great seeing all the exhibits though, but the 'Secret room' wasn't as big or as obscene as I had imagined!!!
