Naples' Secret Museum

Naples' Secret Museum


An adults-only tour of the National Archeological Museum in Naples, to see treasures recovered from Pompeii and one of the most risqué and controversial "secret" collections in the history of archeology.



What you’ll do

For more than a hundred years there was a locked room in Naples' National Archeological Museum that held things deemed so shocking and obscene you could only see them if you were an adult man. Thankfully, we live in more enlightened times and now anyone can see the collection of risqué, rude, and downright pornographic artifacts recovered from the ruins of Pompeii.

There's a lot more to the museum than dirty pictures, though. This tour will show you all the highlights of its world-famous collection of antiquities recovered from Pompeii, including some of the finest Roman mosaics in existence.

  • Includes: Pre-reserved tickets to the museum.
  • Sites Visited: National Archaeological Museum, Secret Museum and Pompeii artifacts
