The museum is situated inside the Maschio Angioino, construction built in 1279 under the kingdom of Charles I of Angiņ, on project of the French architect Pierre de Chaule. At the entrance of the Castle there is the Arch of Triumph, a monumental work created to celebrate the entrance in Naples of Alfonso I of Aragon (1443). From 1990 it has centre the civic museum. The museum itinerary begins in the fourteenth-century Chapel Palatina which houses paintings that go from the end of the '300 to the beginnings of the '500 and sculptures of the Neapolitan Renaissance. At the first floor are exposed some paintings, sculptures and liturgical furniture (from the XV to the XVIII), coming from corporate body and suppressed churches. Among the works are signalled the "Adoration of the Magis" of 1519 realized by Marco Cardisco, a "Still-life" by Giuseppe Recco and the "Miracle of S. Giovanni of God" of the Neapolitan painter Francesco Solimena.
