The MANN or National Archaeological Museum of Naples surprises with its exhibitions of archaeological pieces ranging from the prehistoric period to the Renaissance through antiquity. Its building contains one of the most important Greco-Roman collections in the world. There are mosaics from the ruins of Pompeii. You can also see artifacts from ancient Egypt or works from the Borgia family collection. With an area of more than 10,000 square metres, the MANN is located in the Palazzo degli Studi, a palace in the historic centre of Naples.
When was the National Archaeological Museum of Naples created? The building was previously a cavalry barracks, then the headquarters of the University of Naples before becoming the National Archaeological Museum of Naples in 1977.
