  • It is the most important museum in the world dedicated to the sculptural representation of the Divine Infante. Jesus Children with a sad appearance alternate with opulent baroque-era statues and pathetic 19th-century depictions in an alternation of artefacts of extreme artistic quality. Mrs Hiky Mayr, who collected these statues with extreme discernment from the antique market, has formed a collection that deserves to be seen. The Child Jesus are alternated with perfectly restored Neapolitan nativity statues seven-hundredths and Madonnas dressed of various eras. I visited the Museum and the collection several times before it was exhibited here and each time the enchantment is the same. If you are lucky you can meet in the halls of the beautiful Museum the Collector who always, with enthusiasm, accompanies the most attentive visitors.

  • Even the visit of this private collection, which is probably unique in the world, is an outspoken sensation. But if you are lucky enough to see the founder of this institution, Mrs. Hiky Mayr, take the lead through the exhibition, then that is no longer to be surpassed. For then the many boys of Jesus begin to live, as it were, whether they are naked or in precious clothes, whether they lie in a manger or sleep in Mary's arms. Collecting these exhibits of high artistic and historical value certainly required a huge temporal and high material commitment, so that Ms. Hiky Mayr cannot be thanked enough for her life's work.

  • Museum which houses some three hundred representative carvings dating back to the last four hundred years of the history of Jesus child, iconography of Mary as a child, these artistic sculptures often have been found in antique markets and had a meticulous restoration that has restored to their former glory. Very nice, bright, ticket cost 7 euros (the Vittoriale) you can buy the book.

  • More than I would have expected. A fabulous exhibition on the figurines of baby Jesus, the Madonna child and the characters of the crib. A Must see.

  • A museum that makes you stay speechless for the uniqueness and beauty of what makes you admire. A wonderful collection (the largest in the world) of the child Jesus, the "divine infant" that comes in a variety of versions. No less beautiful collection of Neapolitan Nativity scenes that have nothing to envy to those found in Naples and Caserta. And what about the "Madonna dressed", beautiful statues, dressed in beautiful dresses. But the most fascinating thing was finding out that all this was due to the skill and mastery of Mrs. Mayr who knew how to bring back the splendour that we see, material that in many cases it was in terrible shape. DEFINITELY A PLACE TO VISIT

  • The Museum reveals really cool stuff. According to me at Christmas time visit instead of the usual markets because it represents a more sacred atmosphere of the Nativity. Prices Alas for entry are in my humble opinion a bit high.
