Well set out and impressive museum, well stocked. Some information in both Italian and English but not all. We had already visited Pompei and Herculaneum so this museum really helped bring things to life. Well worth visiting. Small gifts shop on site.

If you are visiting the Archaeological Park the same ticket gets you into the museum. You don't have to spend much time here but some exhibits are really interesting.
