Highlights
  • Explore a late 18th-century museum in an old cavalry barracks
  • See amazing Greco-Roman artefacts from Pompeii and Herculaneum
  • Check out the Toro Farnese (Farnese Bull) sculpture, and the stunning mosaics from Pompeii's Casa del Fauno
Description

Witness treasure from Herculaneum and Pompeii in one of the world's most amazing collections of ancient exhibits. See mosaics from Pompeii's Casa del Fauno, the famed Toro Farnese (Farnese Bull) sculpture and more!

Step into this old cavalry barracks and former university for an insight into Naples' past and mind-blowing Greco-Roman artefacts.

The Naples' National Archaeological Museum was established in the late 18th century by the Bourbon king Charles VII, ultimately to house the antique treasures handed down to him from his mother!

Explore artifacts from Pompeii and Herculaneum and don't miss the Toro Farnese (Farnese Bull) sculpture, or the iconic statue of Atlas with a globe on his shoulders in the first-floor library.

There are also stunning mosaics, bronzes, glassworks, ceramics and engraved coppers from Pompeii, Herculaneum and other ancient cultures. And down in the basement you'll find the Borgia collection of Egyptian relics and epigraphs.

It's a history fix like no other in Naples!

Very few items on the audio guide. Very disappointed.

Absolutely a must see experience. So much history, and mostly originals. A cultural event par excellence.

Quick, easy access. We only had a short period time to visit so it was really fast with Tiqets to get access with audio guides for 6 of us.

It was great. So many items to see. Amazing the things they were able to save.
Two hrs was not enough time.

There are some stunning works in this museum, but imho the interpretation is poor. The overall experience is dry, and much more could be down with modern digital techniques. This museum is well behind the curve.
AND dear travellers, be warned - there is NO cafe or restaurant on site. There are some vending machines, but that's all. It's hard to believe, but true.

Very interesting museum displaying a wide range of archaeological finds discovered over the centuries. Beautiful mosaics, wall paintings, statues, etc which shows just how advanced ancient societies were. It shows all aspects of how such societies lived: rich and poor, housing and furniture and much more.

Straight into museum, showed e-ticket. Fantastic experience, a must see if you are going to Pompeii and Herculaneum.
