Not that interesting, plus no photos allowed. The Duomo next door is much more stunning and impressive. There are better ways to spend your time in Naples.

You will be overhelmed by the quantity and quality of treaures you see. Gold, Silver, stones, It seems to me to be tons of stuff. It is impossible to describe, must go.

It's is definitely a must see. While you have to pay entrance for the museum the entrance to the duomo is free. The cathedral itself is marvelous, with paintings on the ceilings, and various chapels within.
