The majority of the treasures from the nearby archeological sites are found here. It was great to finally see what all was found at these sites all in a well organized museum.

We visited the museum after seeing Pompeii, where we had found that all the decent mosaics and wall frescoes and statues had been taken to the museum. Hence it was a must see and we weren't disappointed. At the end of the mosaics room was...More

I highly recommend this museum. Extremely rich in master pieces, such as roman and greek sculptures, roman mosaics from Pompeii and many mores.

probably the best museum in naples. this place houses more artifacts from pompeii than what's in pompeii. the work here is exceptional, and the place is awesome. i highly recommend it, right in the heart of naples.

The building itself is wonderful never mind the collections within. The collection of mosaics and frescos and other artifacts from Pompeii is truly amazing. So well preserved especially considering the place was buried in 79 AD. Amazing artisans way back then. I did not manage...More

I did not know it is closed one day a week. I was not there on a Tuesday. So worth seeing. There are amazing displays of so many things. Better stuff of Pompeii than Pompeii itself has.
