OK, most people go to Naples for the ancient stuff, but here is something in an area of Naples most foreign tourists ignore. In via Luigi Settembrini, 15 minutes uphill from the Central Station, less than 10 downhill from the Cavour metro station, at the top of the ancient centre, above Spaccanapoli. We found an apartment in this street for a week, great value.
This is a fairly new museum, product of the reform processes within the Naples city government, funding a bit variable as political leaders change. If taking a taxi ask for the Museo Madre [MOO ZAY-O MAR-DRAY], that's how locals refer to it.
And walk up the hill after the museum, then down via Duomo, and off to the right near the cathedral (Duomo = DWO-MO] into Spaccanapoli, and get lost in the centre of the world!
I made a little movie of a visit, using iPhone stills.
