The National Archaeological Museum of Naples (MANN) is an archaeological museum, among the most important in the city of Naples. Boasting the richest and most valuable collection of works of art and artifacts of archaeological interest in Italy, it is considered one of the most important archaeological museums in the world, if not the most important in terms of the history of Roman times. It has a total exhibition area of 12,650 m².
The building that currently houses the museum is the Palazzo degli Studi, built in 1585 as "cavalry barracks." The palace represents a certain architectural significance being in fact one of the most impressive monumental buildings in Naples. It insists on the area of an ancient necropolis of the Greek Neapolis: the necropolis of Santa Teresa.
