MAN - the National Archaeology Museum, Naples

A few pictures taken during special touring exhibitions, and others of items from the
quite incredible collection held by the Museo Archeologico Nazionale (MAN)- gathered
not just at Pompeii and Herculaneum, but from sites all over the Campania region.

After almost 450 years the building is creaking, often there aren't enough staff to open
every one of the exhibition rooms, but nevertheless it's unmissable.... and, unusually
for such places in Italy, closed on Tuesdays!!!

For more details, see their rather so-so website, here

The best part of that is a 'collection by collection' guide to what they've got...

This 'tinyurl' link will fetch a good "how they did it" leaflet about the replica of
the Alexander mosaic, which can now be seen in place of the original at the House of
the Faun, at Pompeii...
