  • The tickets were cancelled with no explanation which I requested. I did, however get the refund. Not a confidence builder.

  • Wow wow wow! One of the best museums I have ever visited. There are so many paintings and statues of famous people! You can find statues of Hercules, Artemis and Venus. The building looks very fine and it is very big. If you're in Naples and you're interested in the ancient Romans and Greeks, you have to check this museum out.
  • We visited as a family (2 adults and 2 kids) - it was great! So many artifacts from Pompeii and Herculaneum to see. The mosaics were my favorite- but it was all great. Definitely plan to spend a good 2-3 hours if you want to see it all! The cafeteria was also lovely and family friendly.
  • Somewhat disappointing, as most of their collection is less than amazing. I thought there would be more interesting things from Pompeii. There are some nice sculptures, but most of them are similar or copies of each other. The "secret" room with all of the erotic stuff from Pompeii was closed when we went, but most of our group wouldn't have wanted to enter anyway.
  • Wonderful and grand museum full of history. Definitely give yourself at least 2.5 hours to see everything but the more time the better. They have explanations of the pieces in Italian and English. If you plan on visiting Pompeii and Herculaneum, add this museum to your places for visit as well
  • Had a wonderful time here. Only had a few hours in Naples so we walked from the train station which is a very enjoyable walk. They have lots of amazing sculptures but the coolest thing is the art and murals from Pompeii. If you plan on going to Pompeii this is a must stop before or after.
