“Incredible collection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

One of the most incredible paintings collections you can visit in all of Europe. Fascinating the quantity and quality of the paintings. Give yourself time to see everything it is really worth the time there

“Caravaggio and Gentileschi Worth the Entrance Price Alone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

This museum houses a number of extraordinary collections. The Caravaggio and the Gentileschi are exceptional and worth the admission price alone.
We went off season and there was virtually noone else there, so we had plenty of time to contemplate the art at our leisure.
The only downside was that there was no chance to buy a postcard of our favourite pictures. It looked like the gift shop had closed down for the season.
There isn't much guidance as to what or why or how - so if you are looking for a bit of background on the art it's worth buying some sort of guide in advance. But for the non-art historians, it's a great place to wander and wonder.
By the way - the Herculaneum and Pompeii artefacts are in the Archealogical museum in the Centro Storico, not here.

“Wonderful art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

This museum houses the painting, tapestry, furniture and porcelain collections of the National museum. It is housed in a royal palace and the grounds comprise a wonderful park. The collection is quite large, so make a plan for your tour. Some of the rooms are not open at all hours, due to Italian budgetary constraints.
Definitely worth the effort of getting there.

“Excellent art work”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

This museum is like a little Uffizi, though, by the time we visited it (near the end of our time in italy), we were saturated with fine art and didn't fully appreciate it. Be very careful taking the public bus to the museum (I think it was Bus C). The bus is very crowded and nearly everyone on it stands; you are packed in like sardines. Some guys who initially came across as very friendly tried to pick my husband's pocket. After that experince, we took a taxi from the museum to the train station.
