If possible, go to Herculaneum (Ercola) and Pompeii first to get an idea of what a mind-blowing experience it must have been to uncover the mosaics, frescoes and statues now kept in this museum. "Beautiful" doesn't nearly describe the color, the liveliness captured in these works, celebrating food, love, myth and life. The people who walked by and appreciated this artwork every day were buried with thousands of others, destroyed in a matter of hours by the six-mile-high eruption of Vesuvius. Now, the beauty of these works are preserved, displayed two thousand years later for our appreciation. What a gift! And the "secret room", full of erotica 79AD-style is a hoot.

All the best finds from the Roman sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum ended up here. Excellent collection of sculpture and mosaics. Now open is the once-forbidden "secret" room with erotic frescoes and sculptures.

If you're a fan of Roman History this museum is an absolute must see, especially if you've recently visited Pompeii. Many of the artifacts found in Pompeii and Herculaneum ended up in this museum. We gave ourselves plenty of time to wander through and still didn't see everything.

This is a MUST in Naples, if you come here you should visit it!
The MANN (which stand for National Archaeological Museum of Naples in italian) is one of the most important museums of the world because of the huge collection coming from the whole "Magna Grecia" area (Paestum, Pompei, Ercolano, Naples...), but there's also a very interesting Egyptian Collection and some collections donated by eminent italian families, such as "the Spinelli", "the Borgia" and "the Farnese". My favourite one is the erotic collection, very funny!
The building, dated at XVI century, was the former base of the University and is a beautiful monumental palace really great to visit.

Sure, this museum is jumbled and overstuffed, but a) it is Naples, and b) there is so much to display. If you're at all interested in Roman history, art, architecture, archaeology, coins, culture, etc, this museum should be second on your list (after the National Museum in Rome).
