While we were expecting much more about the life and history of Pompei (there is an overwhelming display of marble statutes from the Roman times mostly coming from Rome), the room with the mosaics from Pompei all made up for the disappointment. The mosaics are...More

This museum is dedicated to the treasures retrieved from Pompeii and Herculaneum. It is divided into areas showcasing sculptures, mosaics, frescoes, etc. and all the signs are in both Italian and English. We spent seven hours there because there is so much to see. The...More

We enjoyed this museum, sculpture galleries are very fine. Plenty of wall art from Pompeii and other objects. Not to be missed.

Quite a nice museum with an incredible collection of artifacts from Pompeii and Herculaneum and tons of sculptures. I decided to go with the audioguide and not with the 60€/h guide as I was prepared to stay there for 4h minimum. Some sections are currently...More
