  • An amazing museum, which contains ancient roman statues, artifacts from Greek settlements in the South of Italy and a ton of frescoes from Pompeii. Frescoes are truly amazing (including the erotic ones) and give you a very different perspective on the ancient life. If you want to learn about history this museum is an absolute must see when in Naples
  • First of all, the entry fee is really expensive. The full price is 18 €. I had the ticket with discount so I only had to pay 2 euros. The gap between these prices is insane. The museum itself was okay. The first floor is amazing. The statues are stunning. On the second floor you can find a stunning hall with ceiling paintings. During our visit the hall was completely empty. I suppose there are temporary exhibitions there. Bummer that we missed out on that. It’s a shame the exhibition rooms are a little bit run down. There’s no attention to detail. The curtains were really messy. There were also paintings behind some statues which isn’t nice to look at (as seen in my last picture). The bathrooms were smelly and were not in good conditions.
