Museo Archeologico dei Campi Flegrei, Baiae

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.

    Beautiful location with views over the Bay, mozzafiatoi interesting interiors with different salt well put and complete with explanatory signs ... beautiful terrace overlooking the sea or shine is a paradise ... beautiful fees that allows to visit the Amphitheater of Pozzuoli 4euros and the ruins of Cumae.

    The Museum is housed within the aragonese Castle situated on an outcropping of volcanic rock. From here you can enjoy a splendid view of the Gulf of Naples and on the Bay. The Museum consists of 47 rooms and is the main museum complex of the territory. Houses exhibits of value from the area of Campi Flegrei, territory that for its thermal springs and mild climate was much appreciated in Roman times. It begins with a section dedicated to Cuma, we then move to the finds discovered in Pozzuoli. Then, on the parade ground of the Castle, there is the section devoted to Rione Terra, with artifacts found in the Capitolium and the Augustan Forum including the head of Athena Lemuna. Again we must report the lack of tourist information, no map, no audio resulting in lack of enhancement of the material. Worth a visit. Easy parking nearby for a fee.

    We walked from until Baia Puzzoli to visit the archaeological site (on land and in the water). Once on site, office of tourrisme closed and difficulties to find the sites. Free sites of the city centre are pretty but impossible to see the other sites (Aragonese castle and submersible site which are apparently open until 13:00).

  • 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.
  • Beautiful Museum with collections of artifacts found in the archaeological sites of the phlegrean fields. In addition to the Museum you can visit certain areas of the Aragonese castle of Baia, where you look at one of the best views of the area.
