We visited the University Museum as part of a short stay in Naples, and after having visited most of the popular sites in the city I can say without a doubt that the anatomical museum was our favourite. The collection is full of fascinating exhibits...More

We visited the museum of human anatomy on a Thursday morning having booked a slot by email the day before. The guard was really helpful & supplied us with tablets & told us we were the only visitors booked in that day. What a fascinating,...More

There are four different museums and unfortunately, we could only have the chance to visit three. Despite the museums' lack of air conditioning and inconvenient hours, these museums are truly worth the visit. The geology museum features a collection of rocks so stunning and vast,...More

If you are a medical student, or you're interested in medical history history, or anatomy or all of these (as long as you're not too squeamish) you need to visit this place. Really amazing and educational. B Such a beautiful exposition! Loved it!

Very friendly, helpful staff, free entry, really interesting museum. Well worth a visit if you are in Naples. They give you a little tablet and earphones and you can listen to the story in English as well. As you walk into the building go up...More

It was great! There are original human remains prepared long long time ago, so the whole room has a unique, antique feeling. There are very scary foetal disorders and different kinds of diseases can be learned as medical students could learn them decades ago. The...More

The museum houses a variety of human body specimens and wax models which will interest visitors with or without a medical background. Some specimens date back over a hundred years. There is an audio guide in English which explains the exhibits well. The staff is...More

This museum holds a big collection of human body pathologies - both in wax models and preserved real body parts. Remember to reserve a visiting time, as the museum has a few open hours during the week. The staff is very nice, though for a...More

The idea of this ‘exhibition’ is very interesting although the outcome I think does not look very real. We went to the one in Copenhagen before and that was truly amazing with the same theme. After that this was a bit disappointing.

The second "unique" museum I've visited, with the first being in Copenhagen. This wasn't as great as there were no interactive sections and no information regarding what's what in the museum but still, it was a nice way to spend 40 minutes of an overcast...More
