  • 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!

Excellent! The only downside is that i expected the plaster casts from pompei to be there but it wasn’t. But this is one of the highlights of my stay in Napoli! Bring regular earphones (not apple) as they don’t provide it with the audioguide

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.
