By appoinment. CLOSED FOR MAINTENANCE UNTIL 2 SETTEMBER 2019 The coral and cameos jewellery museum Ascione is in Naples inside the Galleria Umberto I building, opposite the opera-Teatro di San Carlo and near the Royal Palace of Naples. Here you can visit a museum founded as a tribute to the past generations engaged in this successful activity by Ascione Family. It also includes a didactic and an artistic sections, displaying not only hundreds of jewels as witnesses of red coral and Cameo manufacture from 1805 to 1950, but also ancient documents, tools, machinery and pictures to revive and to go on along a journey started 150 years ago.

First, do not go here if you do not like the sight of preserved human body parts. This museum is home to many anatomical structures which have been preserved or mummified. Personally I found it fascinating, Inspiring as an artist also, but there are quiet moments of sadness. The collection is incredible and are well displayed. There are descriptions inside the display cabinet but only in Italian but you can get a tablet from the host and this will guide you through many of the displays in English. I dont know what other languages they have. We had a bit of difficulty finding the museum and ended up going through the back door. Its only open until 2pm only so come early! You need around 1-1.5 hours here to really study the works on display. You can take the metro here and you need take Line/Linea 1 and get off at stop MUSEU - It really is a captivating museum if you are interested in anatomy, science/medicine, the human analysis, etc. The host was very helpful, pleasant and welcoming. Very polite indeed! There is no admission into this museum, its free! Definitely highly recommened!

ilCartastorie, the museum at the Banco di Napoli Historical Archives, was created as a way to allow the public access to the enormous patrimony of documents from the ancient Neapolitan public banks. Within these documents are nearly 17 million names, hundreds of thousands of payments, along with detailed reasons for payment which paint a fascinating picture of Naples and all of Southern Italy during the past 450 years, from 1573 to today. ilCartastorie, in a myriad of ways, from multimedia exhibits to creative writing workshops, effectively brings back the voices, the stories and the historical events which have been immortalized in the pages of the large tomes found at the Archives.

The church was founded by Bartolomeo Di Capua in 1327 and became a place of worship for the Guild of Pipernieri, Frabbicatori and Tagliamonti that in Santa Lucia entrusted the protection of sight, put at risk by their profession. In the basement of the church is kept the famous Skull with Ears, from which the Neapolitans, up until the 1900s, went to pray.
The medieval church is an adorable little place which preserve a wonderful “skull with ears”. It is unique in the world. This place is more important for the great job of refurbishing of Respiriamo Arte association. Thank you a lot!

Founded in the 14th century as a Carthusian monastery, this museum contains a ceiling painting of the "Ascension" by Lanfranco and the ceiling fresco of the "Triumph of Judith" (1704) by Luca Giordano.
Next door to castle Sant Elmo. Excellent display of 2 old ships, well restored with good signage. Beautiful small church and interesting monastery.. Many excellent works of art on display in pleasant non crowded museum.

What a wonderful museum. The venue and the location are beautiful, the tour is very interesting and very well organized. The locomotives’ history and the way they work is wonderfully explained with augmented reality. I strongly advice to visit it, also with kids, especially in sunny days, to enjoy the Mediterranean gardens and the view on the Gulf of Naples. The personnel is very nice and kind.

This museum has all of the interesting finds from Pompeii and Herculaneum, both doomed cities after the violent eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD.
Back in Naples, the last port of call on our cruise, and a visit to this museum was our priority. We arrived before opening and lined up behind the groups of schoolchildren and their teachers. We somehow managed to skip through while the teachers distributed tickets and lectured their charges. The building has a rich history, it was erected as a royal cavalry barracks at the end of the 16th century and served as the seat of the University of Naples from 1616 to 1777. The first galleries were established in the period 1806-1815 and in 1816 it became the Real Museo Borbonico and then in 1860, after the reunification of Italy, it was renamed the National Museum. It became a dedicated Archaeological Museum in 1957 when all paintings housed were transferred to the Museum of Capodimonte. Although not all rooms are utilised, there are excellent displays including the Epigraphic and Egyptian collections, Farnese Gems and Sculptures and Sculptures from Campania. Other galleries showcase coins and medals, mosaics and other treasures. The Pompeii artefacts and paintings recovered from the ruins are outstanding and there are items from ancient Naples and Herculaneum. If you like sculptures you can gorge the senses on the marvelous displays. Ancient Emperors, Atlas with the world on his shoulders, Farnese sculptures, Dionysus and Eros, Apollo with lyre, Pan and Daphne, Artemis of Ephesus, Hercules at rest, the Farnese Bull, and so many more. The Egyptian section has many examples of shabtis and canopic jars, statuettes, examples of sarcophagi, and a piece of papyrus dating to the period 650-350BC. I wondered at the mind of the ancient sculptor responsible for the creation of Pan and the she-goat. We had to make the reluctant decision to depart after four hours appreciating the relics of history.
