We visited the day before going to Ercolano, then Pompeii. I’m undecided about which it’s best to do first. However it’s a must-do companion to the ruins. I only took off a point because so many things have descriptions only in Italian.

If you have gone to Pompeii or Herculaneum, a visit to this museum is essential, and it’s essential in any event for anybody interested in classical antiquity and its artistic legacy.

This place is easily accessible by L1 subway (Museo stop) from the Naples Train Station (1.1e fare). It contains some impressive giant Roman sculptures, but more impressively mosaics, frescos and artifacts (all in excellent shape and in abundance) from both Pompei and Herculaneum. Don’t miss...More

It is embarrassing to Tripadvisor that its methodology has this place at number 38 of things to do in Naples - ridiculous. This museum is superb. There is so much to see that we only scratched the surface. We started with the model of Pompeii...More

The collection in the National Museum in Naples is breathtaking. All of the treasures that the Bourbon dynasty brought to the surface from Ercolano in the 1800's housed in a palace of a museum. It truly contains many of Italy's most precious things, housed under...More

Not sure if it would be a good idea for kids to listen to the audio guide. But what you can do is to listen to the audio guide yourself and then tell the kids about it on your own. Otherwise after 5 minutes they're gonna get... More
