We visited the University Museum as part of a short stay in Naples, and after having visited most of the popular sites in the city I can say without a doubt that the anatomical museum was our favourite. The collection is full of fascinating exhibits...More

There are four different museums and unfortunately, we could only have the chance to visit three. Despite the museums' lack of air conditioning and inconvenient hours, these museums are truly worth the visit. The geology museum features a collection of rocks so stunning and vast,...More

If you are a medical student, or you're interested in medical history history, or anatomy or all of these (as long as you're not too squeamish) you need to visit this place. Really amazing and educational. B Such a beautiful exposition! Loved it!

This museum holds a big collection of human body pathologies - both in wax models and preserved real body parts. Remember to reserve a visiting time, as the museum has a few open hours during the week. The staff is very nice, though for a...More

The idea of this ‘exhibition’ is very interesting although the outcome I think does not look very real. We went to the one in Copenhagen before and that was truly amazing with the same theme. After that this was a bit disappointing.
