The Museum is located inside the Capodimonte Royal Palace on Via Milano n°2 - Naples.
Located in the Capodimonte Royal Palace, it is one of the most important museums in the Southern Italy which houses the Farnese collection with works of the most important artists from the Renaissance to the Baroque, the Borgia collection, and the Neapolitan Gallery.
In 1738 under Charles of Bourbon, king of Naples, began the works for the construction of the Capodimonte Royal Palace and, in 1757, there was placed the beautiful Farnese collection once belonged to the king's mother, Elizabeth Farnese.
During the French Decade (1806-1815) the palace acquired a destination purely residential and lived there personality like Joseph Bonaparte and Joachim Murat. During the years, works and enlargements of the building went on (creation of the monumental staircase, decoration of the halls...) until when, starting from 1840, was also created a gallery of contemporary art characterized by portraits of the royal family.
With the Unification of Italy (1861), the Royal Palace passed to the Savoy and the collections got notably rich thanks to Annibale Sacco, but only in 1957 born the real "National Gallery of Capodimonte".
The Museum consists of more than 150 rooms arranged on 3 floors, and houses paintings, sculptures, bronzes, drawings and prints, tapestries and armours; on the first floor you will found the famous Farnese collection with works by Titian, Masaccio, Botticelli, Parmigianino, as well as the precious "porcelain living-room" composed by over 3000 pieces of fine Capodimonte porcelain, and the Borgia collection.
On the second floor you can admire extraordinary works coming from the Neapolitan and southern churches that form the Neapolitan Gallery, with works by Simone Martini, Caravaggio, Caracciolo, as well as the collection of Flemish tapestries of Andrea D'Avalos. On the third and last floor there is the 19th Century Gallery (Domenico Morelli, Gioacchino Toma, Vincenzo Gemito) and the section of contemporary art (Andy Warhol).

Yes, yes, the museum is badly neglected and parts of it are closed at odd times, there don't seem to be any signs to tell you where the entrance is, and even in the galleries there is no English at all. There's obviously a shortage of staff and also of money. In brief, it's very user-unfriendly. BUT... despite everything, this...

The museum is outside Napels about 15 minutes by car, but really worth seeing. The building itself is beautiful and the galleries are spacious. Despite knowing a fair amount of art history, we hired a guide Fiorella (firstname.lastname@example.org) who was spectacular. In October there was only a handful of tourists so we strolled through the galleries looking at paintings by...

Easily reached on the hop-on/off bus. Beautiful location on a hill overlooking the city in a lovely park. Amazing items from Farnese collection that are worth seeing. Set in a former palace. However, no signs showing where the entrance was and a lot of backtracking before even entering the museum. (This was during the recent heatwave when it was about...

It is a gem box inside a wonderful Royal garden. There are so many important paintings that lead this museum to be the best in Italy. Moreover, the palace itself is a really nice place with a Whole room made of ceramic: wonderful!

Difficult to get to. Huge palace, with no signs to help you find the entrance. Workers near the restrooms, but no toilet paper. Random closures of parts of the Museum. Still, an important collection, in a cavernous space. Was very quiet when we visited, and one wonders why . . then one discovers the robberies reported on the local bus...

A worthwhile museum. Easy to navigate around. Some lovely artwork although not as spectacular as I had imagined when I first read about it. Set in a public park.

Joint exposition of Farnese and Bourbonne families art collection. Interesting for art lovers (Caravaggio among others). The museum is situated in pretty area, park where you could also walk around. Excellent thing is that they have a free paring area, you just have to find the "Porta piccola" from where you can enter by car. Recommendation: If you plan a...

This is truly a museum worth visiting. It has mainly art works from the Farnese collection, but some other collections as well. There is a superb Caravaggio on display. There is a small but adequate cafeteria and an excellent bookshop, although most of the books are in Italian. A plus of this museum is that it is situated in the...
