The museum collects the artistic and historic heritage of the old Certosa, built in 1325 by Charles, the son of the king Roberto di Angiņ, and then became the expression of the Neapolitan baroque thanks to Cosimo Fanzago. Reopened to the public in 1866, the principal nucleus of the museum includes the historic section which collects examples of the politics, economic and social history of the Reign of Naples through paintings, sculptures, cribs and minor arts. There is a wonderful collection of cribs of the '700 and '800 of which the most complete is the crib well-known as Cuciniello given to the museum in 1879 and the pottery collection, chinas and glasses of XVI-XIX century. Important is also the Quarto del Priore, returned to its original architectural structure, which houses the picture-gallery of the prior with works realized by Corenzio, Battistello Caracciolo, Solimena, Salvator Rosa, Ribera, and Luca Giordano.
