Museo Archeologico dei Campi Flegrei, Baia
(4.3/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
See a collection of ancient treasures from historical Greek and Roman settings at Museo Archeologico dei Campi Flegrei. While somewhat lesser-known, the museum offers plenty of artifacts of interest. Highlights include a nymphaeum (a monument to nymphs) formerly submerged and then dredged up from the flooded resort of Baiae and a bronze equestrian statue of the Emperor Domitian. The museum is housed in the 15th-century Castello di Baia, where you can also explore the old halls and climb the towers for fantastic bay views.

  • Museum housed in a castle overlooking the Bay. Exceptional vantage point, the Museum is truly beautiful and contains interesting exhibits of various peoples who inhabited the area in antiquity. Congratulations who has set up the site, only minus the difficulty reaching it with direct public services. However the trip worth Avenue (we went by taxi from the station of Metro line 2 Pozzuoli)

  • The Museum inside the Castle. Three planes divided according to the exhibits placed in 47 rooms. If you see everything carefully it would take 2 days. Beautiful also the Roman baths at about 2 km from the Castle.

  • The place is wonderful! The Museum is nice, although I was not impressed by wealth and presentation of exhibits. It can be visited for only 4 euros with a ticket giving access to other 3 sites. A note on the staff.

  • This is a great museum. It has a minimalistic design and there are some beautiful antiquities. It's about a 25min walk from the port so I suggest organizing vans from the port by the coast guard dock. It's an easy tender drop off..
  • Wonderful museum at the top of an impressive castle, beautiful views, very well presented and extremely well preserved things are on display. Beware that it closes very early.
  • Great museo to visit. The view from the top is amazing
  • Only one gallery of the museum is open the rest is closed for "renovation". The single open gallery is on the finds from Pozzuoli and is splendid, only a shame the rest is closed.
  • Nice Museum and of secondary importance is certainly not for the numerous findings that exposes from cumae and Pozzuoli in majority. Staff fairly friendly, maybe it wouldn't hurt an extended hours of opening to the public. Deserves greater enhancement and much more attention from the public and institutions as well as the entire area flegrea, land rich in scenic beauty and archaeological sites.
