The Archaeological Museum of Naples, also known as MAN, is a magnificent museum located in a 16th-century palace in Naples, Italy. Originally the seat of a university, it was converted into a museum by King Ferdinand IV of Bourbon in the 18th century. The museum houses important collections of Greco-Roman sculptures, especially the Farnese Collection, which includes large statues from Rome, as well as artifacts and archaeological finds from the excavations of Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Stabiae, preserved after the eruption of Vesuvius. In addition to these collections, the MAN also exhibits art and artifacts from other ancient civilizations, such as Egyptian. The museum is recognized worldwide and offers a wide range of cultural activities for all types of visitors, including programs for children. One of the museum's highlights is two colossal groups of sculptures found in the Baths of Caracalla in Rome, which are Roman copies of Greek statues, including the famous Farnese Hercules.
