While an interesting museum -- the relics of Pompeii are mostly here (very few remain in Pompeii) -- the museum is not well appointed with signage describing what you are seeing and is not one of the most thrilling museums in Europe. If you go...More

The quantity of amazing ancient sculptures is breathtaking! Well worth visiting but hard to feel you’ve given it enough time.

Outstanding artefacts beautifully restored. Unfortunately spoiled by the lack lustre display. Items displayed in glass wall cases in most cases without any information. The museum building is certainly impressive but needs a massive revamp to bring it up to the 20th century and show the...More
