Pompeii’s Historic Antiquarium Museum Reopens With New Artifacts

The Antiquarium of Pompeii is a museum that narrates the fascinating history of the city of Pompeii and it has reopened.

The ancient city of Pompeii has held fascination for many archaeologists and travelers alike. The Antiquarium of Pompeii is a museum, originally built between 1873 and 1874, that is home to many exhibits that tell the story of the ancient city from the 4th century BC until the volcano’s eruption in AD 79. The museum has reopened to visitors with new and fascinating exhibits.

The Antiquarium of Pompeii reopens

Originally built by Giuseppe Fiorelli between 1873 and 1874, the Antiquarium stands in the area below the terrace of the Temple of Venus in Pompeii. It has now reopened as a museum, where exhibits tell the story of the ancient city of Pompeii from the Samnite era (4th century BC) until the deadly eruption in AD 79.

While the Antiquarium exhibits the history of Pompeii, the building itself has quite an interesting history.
When it was first built, it was an exhibition venue for certain select finds that were representative of Pompeii’s daily life. It was also a home for the casts of the victims of the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius.

Amedeo Maiuir expanded the Antiquarium in 1926, by adding large maps giving details of the updated developments of the excavations made since 1748. He also added new finds from the Villa Pisanelle of Boscoreale to enhance the collection. Maiuir also added artifacts from excavations of Via dell’Abbondanza. With the maps, he laid out a route to guide visitors through the history of ancient Pompeii, telling its story from its origins up until the volcanic eruption.

The Antiquarium and World War II

Sadly, in 1943, the building was seriously damaged by bombing during World War II. However, thanks to Maiuri’s restoration works, the Antiquarium reopened to visitors five years later. At that time the second centenary of the Pompeii excavations was celebrated. During 1980, the building was once again damaged by an earthquake and remained closed for 36 years. It reopened as a visitor center with temporary museum exhibits in 2016.

The newest renovations are similar to Amedeo Maiuri’s initial concept for the museum. They provide an introductory tour to guests before the actual visit to the site. Here, visitors can gaze on the most famous artifacts of the ancient city, including the Moregine Silver Treasure, the House of the Golden Bracelet and the triclinium of the House of Menander.

Other exhibits will include finds unearthed in the most recent excavations by the Archaeological Park. Among these finds is the amulet treasure from the House with the Garden, fragments of First Style stucco from the House of Orion, and recently acquired casts of victims found in the Civita Giuiliana villa.

Two forms of digital media are available to visitors, including a web-bot digital assistant that provides clear and simple service information, as well as an audio narration.

Readers can find more information about the Antiquarium from the official Pompeii website here.

Pompeii&rsquos museum has been given a new lease of life after a long history of "ups and downs," announced the director of the archaeological park, Massimo Osanna.

Known as the Antiquarium, the museum narrates the history of Pompeii through exquisite finds unearthed at the ancient Roman city which was buried in volcanic ash after the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD.

Inaugurated in about 1873, the museum was damaged in 1943 by bombing during world war two, leading to "the destruction of an entire room and the loss of hundreds of artefacts," said Osanna.

The Antiquarium reopened in 1948, however the massive Irpinia earthquake in 1980 led to its closure for 36 years, only opening again for temporary exhibitions in 2016.

The reopening of the museum on a permanent basis - hailed by Osanna as a "sign of great hope during a very difficult moment" - follows lengthy closures at the archaeological site over the last year due to the covid-19 crisis.

Treasures on display at the Antiquarium include fragments of frescoed walls, sculptures, silver spoons, furnishings, amulets and items from everyday life before the city was destroyed.

Access to the Antiquarium will be included in the entrance ticket to the vast archaeological site which, due to Italy's coronavirus travel restrictions, is currently only open to visitors from the Campania region which includes Pompeii and Naples.

Boscoreale is a town north of Pompeii, lying on the slopes of Vesuvius, identified by some as the Pagus Augustus Felix Suburbanus. On account of its fertility it was inhabited since protohistorical times and reoccupied after the eruption of 79 A.D.

In the Roman age it was full of villas and farms that specialised in cultivating vines, olives and cereals. Established in 1991, the Antiquarium di Boscoreale illustrates, by means of exhibits found at the archaeological sites of Pompeii, Herculaneum, Oplontis, Stabiae, Terzigno, and Boscoreale, and accompanying captions, the main characteristics of the Vesuvian environment in the Roman Age and the human use of its natural resources. With the aid of various sciences applied to archaeology, it is in fact possible to reconstruct what the situation was in various places in the Vesuvian area, the types of flora and fauna there, some of which have disappeared, as well as the agricultural and pastoral state of affairs and, more generally, the way of life of the local people in antiquity and their relationship with the environment.

The museum tour ends with a visit to a farm located in the immediate vicinity: the ‘villa rustica’ at Villa Regina, the only one accessible to visitors that is fully excavated. For this villa too, the production of wine was the main activity, as demonstrated by the rooms used for pressing grapes, with the pressing vat (calcatorium) and the fixed arrangements for assembling the wooden press (torcular), and the great ‘cella vinaria’ with its sunken clay jars (dolia defossa) for conserving wine.

Not nearly good enough to visit

I wanted to visit absolutely everthing and this was only 900m from the hotel I was staying in and already had the 5 centre ticket purchased in Pompeii which lasted 3 days. The attraction is in a vile area and with young italian kids buzzing around on quad bikes and scooters we made the trip undaunted. The attraction would be great but unfortunately it is only a single villa and you are not allowed into it only walk around the outside walls. The external walls are really high and therefore there isnt much to see. The rest of the attraction is made up of a small museum, which isnt bad if a little limited. My favourites were the plaster casts of a pig and a chained up guard dog, plus the mesmerising cast of a womans head which mouth covered by robes.

If you are already in Pompeii and have taken the wise move of buying the €20 5-site ticket then the Musuem at Boscoreale which is included in your ticket is worth a visit. It's a 25 minute walk from the Pompei Scavi station using the helpful walking instructions at http://www.herculaneum.ox.ac.uk/?q=boscoreale
Note that the Villa Regina next to the museum is currently closed to visitors, but if you've done the main Pompeii site you are probably 'ruined out'.
One thing I really missed from the main site was that there was absolutely nothing on display that they had found apart from the shells of the buildings. This museum at least has a reasonable collection of artifacts (although all of the best ones I believe are in the main museum in Naples) to give some insight into how the people of Pompeii lived their lives, what they ate, their cooking utensils and small domestic items.
There is some helpful description, but it is all in Italian (well, all of the signage in the British Museum is in English so can't really complain).

The antiquarium is about 20 minutes walk from Boscoreale station (well signposted once you are on the route). We were disappointed to find that the adjacent villa was not open to the public - this was an agricultural villa so would have been an interesting contrast to the patrician villas we had seen already.

The museum itself has some interesting exhibits on the natural and farming background to the Roman ruins and has one or two nice pieces, but frankly, after visiting Stabiae and Oplontis we were too tired to get the most out of the museum. Without the villa, I am not sure it is worth the effort of changing trains several times followed by a 40 minute round walk mainly along a busy road.

The past came back to life by magic. There are the remains of food (bread, grapes, apples and charred petrified ..), containers, nets and fishing gear . shells, reconstructions of the river Sarno, ancient statues still covered with paint. Wanderfull, not to be missed!

If Boscoreale,2km north of Pompeii is famous for its vineyards of Lacryma Christi and its treasure of 109 items of silverware buried by its owner before the Vesuvius eruption and found in a winetank,very few people visit its Antiquarium,an archaelogical museum with finds from Ercolano,Pompeii,Oplontis,Stabiae but also a museum of the natural history of the area in the ancient times.
The first room illustrates the Vesuvius area in the Roman period and the main human activities(textiles,medicine,perfumes,religious world..)
The second room exhibits items found in the nearby villae rusticae and at this time is held a very interesting exhibition on plaster casts(casting techniques used at the Vesuvian sites).

entrance fee:5,5 euro valid one day for Boscoreale,Oplontis,Stabiae

hours:1st November-31th March:8:30 to 17:00,till 19:30 in Summer,closed on 1st January,1st May and 25th December

via Settetermini,15 Boscoreale
www.pompeiisites.org

Adjacent to the museum stands the VILLA REGINA,a typical roman farming settlement for the making of wine,closed to visit when I was there.

After 40 Years, Pompeii Fully Reopens Its Treasure-Filled Antiquarium

In some ways, the Antiquarium museum at the archeological park of Pompeii has had as troubled a history as the doomed city itself.

The facility opened back in 1873 but since then, it had to shutter twice, first because it was bombed during World War II, and again in 1980 because of damage from an earthquake. The museum didn't fully reopen for decades following that catastrophe.

But on January 25, after 40 years out of use as a showcase for Pompeii's permanent collection, the Antiquarium reopened to the general public on a daily basis. Much of what's on display has been in storage for years.

Now tourists to Italy can again see artifacts large and small that illustrate daily life in the lost city, which was consumed in 79 A.D. by a horrific volcanic eruption that killed approximately 2,000 people.

Objects that are back on display include some of the site's most fabulous archeological finds, including brilliant frescoes of the House of the Golden Bracelet, the triclinium (dining room) of the House of Menander, life-size statues, and recently discovered stucco from the fauces (entry passage) of the House of Orion.

Silver tableware, bronze warming trays, and other dining utensils are among the smaller, but just as fascinating, items on display. Most poignant: the casts of citizens that were made years ago by pouring plaster into the cavities left by corpses in the volcanic ash.

It's expected that as more treasures are uncovered—and that happens all the time at Pompeii—they will be added to the collection. The site is still an ongoing archeological dig the remains of an ancient fast food restaurant, including remnants of food still calcified in pots, was announced as a find at the end of 2020.

Admission to the Antiquario di Pompei is now included with entry to the general archeological park. Visitors have access to an audio tour that explains what they're seeing, although there's also extensive printed text. The Antiquarium has also introduced a new section on the history of Pompeii, from its roots as a small settlement in the 4th century B.C. until its abrupt end.

Pompeii was uncovered in 1786, and in the years afterward it was visited by many eminent personages including German poet and playwright Johannes Wolfgang von Goethe, who exclaimed, “There have been many disasters in the world, but few have brought as much joy to posterity. I think that it would be difficult to see anything more interesting."

Contemporary visitors will feel the same way, especially after a stop at this state-of-the-art museum.

And it's not the only major Roman antiquity that has been suddenly made available again to travelers to Italy this year: In March, Rome will reopen the epic Mausoleum of Augustus after it was closed to the general public for some 80 years.


Antiquarium of Boscoreale, Room I - History

The details of this tour are shown below:

This tour combines the visit of Pompeii ruins and the Boscoreale Antiquarium.

The Boscoreale Antiquarium performs the dual function of a local archaeological Museum and a Museum of the natural history of the area in ancient times. Its two rooms contain exhibits from the archaeological sites of Boscoreale, Oplontis, Herculaneum, Pompeii, Terzigno and Stabiae. We can thus reconstruct the physical characteristics of the area in the Roman period.
