  • What’s wrong with these people and their bad reviews? If you only want to visit museums in a brand new building like the Getty in L.A. or Malibu, skip the National Archaeological Museum of Naples...

  • Having made the effort to trek to the museum, it was a poor experience to say the least. The building itself looked dated and poorly kept, and did no justice the decent collection it contains. Also...

  • 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.
