  • We had problems finding this museum. We walked up and down the street twice and missed it every time, we didn't have a number, just street name. I asked a woman for directions and she showed us where ...  more »

  • Museum lies in the centre of Capua, easy to find if you have GPS. Parking nearby is possible. The same ticket valid for visiting Mithreum 5 minutes walk from museum - ask ticket office for guide.  more »

  • Very interesting and is plenty of things, the museum explain you about the story of the old Capua, is small but is worth it, ( the most important thing to see is the sanctuary of Mitra an ancient god of a roman ritual and probably the only one in the world) Muy interesante y completo, explica un poco la historia de la antigua Capua, un poco pequeño pero bonito, ( la cosa mas importante para ver es el santuario de Mitra el dios de un antiguo ritual romano y probabilmente el único del mundo) Molto interessante è abbastanza completo, parla un po della storia dell'antica Capua, un po Piccolo ma bello, ( la cosa più importante da vedere e il santuario di Mitra un dio di un antico rito romano probabilmente il unico santuario del mondo )
  • Archaeological finds from the area, English translation on some of the displays. Worth a visit
  • Great time out. An even better coloseium than the one of Rome. You need to see the hidden extras. Great great great.
  • The Archaeological Museum of ancient Capua is located in the heart of Santa Maria Capua Vetere. The establishment of the Archaeological Museum of ancient Capua was born from the need to present, according to the most modern exhibition criteria, the materials released into the light during the excavations carried out in the second half of the 20th century in what was once the territory of Capua. Since December 2014 the Museum, the amphitheatre and the mitreo are passed to the Polo museale della Campania. The tour duration is approximately 30 minutes. Is not very large and the exhibits are few. Most of the time you can find pottery and gears of war and work. It is a ten minute walk from the amphitheatre Campano. Definitely worth visiting because the entrance is inclusive of other attractions in Santa Maria Capua Vetere including the mithraeum, the amphitheatre Campano. Tickets cost just € 2.50.

  • Very small but interesting Museum. Honestly I was expecting a little more. There are still pieces well maintained that deserve to be seen. Staff totally absent ... At the entrance they asked simply if I had the ticket without actually control it. The empty Museum ... Not a keeper or a guard. Any attacker would quietly could harm undisturbed ...
