Naples National Archeological Museum

This was actually a few weeks ago (read like 2 months ago haha) we went to the National Archaeological Museum in Naples.  We actually took the metro from Aversa Centro which is about a 30 minute walk from our house all the way down to the museum metro which is right outside the Archaeological Museum. So it was really cool we got to do the whole day just using public transportation which was nice because it's a headache to drive downtown Naples and it's also kind of expensive to park at the airport and take the bus over. It's doable I mean you could do it but this was kind of fun because we paid the five dollars for there and back and we got to see some of our lovely town as well but it's nice to know that we can hop on the metro and get to downtown Naples.
The archaeological Museum is very cool it's definitely worth the trip. Make sure to check when some exhibits are open or close there were some things that were closed when we were there but we did get to see the secret room. The secret room is kind of all of the naughty inappropriate stuff that they found at Pompeii there are lots of penises and sexual stuff but definitely worth it to go in and see some of the stuff. The obviously were very comfortable exploring their sexuality. Or maybe they just kept all the sexual stuff in a secret room haha.
We did get to see the sundial room which was awesome and their was an exhibit in there as well. There were these gold leaf crowns and just a really amazing stuff that they found at Pompeii we actually haven't been to Pompeii yet (I have now, yeah late on posting these) but we did the museum and we done now Vesuvius so now the next stop is definitely Pompeii. There's also lots of replicas because of Greek statues these replicas are very very old and made just a few years after the originals and they were found at Pompeii and other Roman and sites but they are like the Romans replicated Greek statues I guess that's a better way to put it. There is a lot of the museum that isn't even open and I don't think even has exhibits in it I'm so they're definitely could be more to it but it's pretty good for what it is. A lot of the artifacts are from Pompeii and Herculaneum so if you are into the Italy history and archeological it is definitely worth it. It does cost 13 euro and I don't have any recommendations for parking because like I said we took the metro.
