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.

  • The Museum contains masterpieces of no small value both from a historical point of view that arts and culture! However it is strongly felt the lack of audio guide or the possibility of a guide that manifest the value of relics it contains

  • A great Museum where you can admire the many archaeological finds with tremendous views just steps from Naples

  • A short distance from Naples and easy to reach by car, not very well known but deserving of greater advertising and attendance. Private car park at the foot of the castle with charge of 3 € and then a few hundred meters to the entrance. After the bow, right at the Office: with 4 € ticket valid also for the Amphitheater of Pozzuoli and Cuma Archaeological Park, all accessible by limited movements. Reduced staff, no rest stop, small supply of publications, open up at 14.30, toilets available both outside and in the lower floor of the Museum from the first square the wonderful view on the Gulf and the Islands in front, and the Majesty of the castle behind them, and then after the drawbridge and a short climb Museum admission. Set in the Aragonese fortress, restored and fit for purpose, houses exhibits of the Campi Flegrei, uniqueness and beauty that affect not only lovers of Archeology but also all visitors. The itinerary is comforted by explanatory signs in Italian and English for every single object on display, which allows for a targeted visit even without audio guides and Guides on site. The upper level of over twenty halls is dedicated to Cuma, the history of the site from the 9th century BC to the Byzantine period; the lower level with an equivalent number of salt is dedicated to Pozzuoli and life in the colony. Finally the climb to the upper square with the latest surprises: sculptural finds in Rione Terra, and the view of the beautiful sea and the settlements to its edges. Two hours pass early, and then with the Sun you can also relax on the forecourt in the contemplation of the landscape. Transferring to other sites does not exclude a stroll downtown.

  • 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.
