  • 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

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!

Need lots of time to see it properly. Well worth the price and the time!

We had a super time. Opted to get a guide rather than use the audio guides because our time was limited. Federica did an excellent job. It was her first time but she was pationate about the subject matter.

It was very convenient and easy to buy the tickets online, and once I got to the Museum , the online ticket was quickly processed at the ticket booth. I recommend it to all!!!

Museum was really good. Audio guide was not worth the money until they get the numbers to correspond with the guide. Everything has been moved around apparently.

Bella esperienza per l’eccelenza Manca una migliore organizzazione dei numeri dell’audioguida

Museo meraviglioso. Deludente l'audio guida rispetto alla parte mosaici e affreschi.

Museo bellissimo. La sezione dei mosaici di Pompei e le magnifiche statue ritrovate ad Ercolano sono imperdibili.

Ticket utile per eludere la coda km ma il museo deludente sotto l’aspetto espositivo, carenza di indicazioni, a volte anche senza etichetta, commenti audioguida sintetici e non esplicativi, disposizione più da deposito che da museo.

Museo bellissimo, tappa imperdibile! La prenotazione è assolutamente da fare

Museo meraviglioso, personale e gestione complessiva impresentabile.
