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.
So, you’re in Naples. Hopefully you’ve already been to Herculaneum and Pompeii, and been excited by the remnants of mosaics, frescoes and statues that you’ve seen in the wonderful ruins there.
Now, take yourself to this magnificent museum, and see where some of the treasures...More
We visited Pompeii some years ago but this visit to the museum in Naples was in many ways far more interesting as we saw so much more. The wall paintings are superb. But there is much more in this vast museum and we enjoyed every...More
Queued for an hour in the rain but hey ho! Believe they could have a slightly better system for taking the admission charge - getting through that final stage didn't help the queue. Anyway once in it was really fascinating. I agree with other reviewers...More
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
If you visit Pompei go here as well as a lot of the mosaics are in the museum along with a large model of Pompei which was made some time in the 1800’s.
if you have bags you can leave them in lockers (free of...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

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€.
