National Archaeological Museum of Naples


I visited the National Archaeological Museum of Naples during my trip to Italy. I was fascinated and amazed by the countless artifacts the museum obtained. Learning how the ancient world’s cultural similarities differed from our modern world was fascinating. Over the years, the collection grew to include artifacts from other ancient sites throughout Italy, including Herculaneum, Stabiae, and Paestum. The museum also acquired a significant collection of Greek and Etruscan artifacts.

The museum’s collection includes a vast array of ancient Roman art and artifacts, including sculptures, mosaics, frescoes, and household objects. The most famous exhibit in the museum is the Farnese Collection, which includes several ancient Roman sculptures, including the Farnese Hercules and the Farnese Bull.
