  • Beautiful structure, very impressive and has a nice cafe (very affordable) you can rest there between going to different exhibitions. As said before you should look at the timetable for each exhibition in the museum so you will not be disappointed. The artifacts from Pompeii, secret room and mosaics were amazing. The Audio guide doesn't cover everything and most of the things have Italian description (as said in other reviews) . The maintenance is very poor though and the walls are dirty , the showcases are dusty and the toilet facilities are in bad condition. Enjoy!
  • Quite a Grand building and beautiful architecture! Also the different rooms are stunning with their elegant design. However it's not 5 stars worthy, because it lacks the wholeness of the audio tour. There are not many items which can be used with the audio device.
