If you've been to Pompeii, or any of the other excavations, a visit here will enhance your understanding. The model of Pompeii is worth seeing, but stars of the show are the frescos and mosaics unearthed over the years.
There is enough in English to...More
We visited on the first Sunday of the month so entry was free so it was busy but it is so worth braving the crowds. There are artifacts from Pompeii here which was interesting but there is so much more. I love museums where the...More
We planned to visit the Pompeii and Herculaneum sites and had been told to make time to visit this museum first. This is very good advice. Many of the best pieces of art and artifacts are located here. Having time to enjoy these and gaining...More
Before you set foot in Pompeii, spend several hours at this magnificent museum. Here you will see a overwhelming array of sculptures (I've never seen as many and as fine in any other museum) and treasures of Pompeii. You will be able to examine them...More
What is in the museum is magnificent without saying.
How it operates is substandard. Most people won't care but the fact that rooms/ wings are closed down because of problems with staffing/ cost cutting is appalling. They obviously work on the view the average tourist...More
The museum is great and has a wealth of information. Unfortunately the audio guide skips a lot of artefacts and if it does describe something, it is very brief and vague. We should have looked into a guided tour of the museum.

That could be difficult to manage. To see the museum, that takes at least 2 h. Than you hafe to take the metro to the station to catch a train to Pompeii, the trip between Naples and Pompeii is 45-50 min. And excavation in Pompeiji is at least 2-3 h. Depending how much you want to see. Then you might catch a cab to mt Vesuvius, that’s about 50 min away. So if you decide to do it all on one day, you will have a busy day. It’s a lot of queuing, expect at least 1h to get through the gates. The area is bigger than you thought
Whises you the best of luck.
P.s. beware of pickpockers. On the train a lost 90€.
