A collection of erotic objects from the Secret Cabinet
Secret Museum or Secret Cabinet (Gabinetto Segreto) are terms referring to the collection of erotic and sexual objects found in Pompeii and Herculaneum, which is located in the National Archaeological Museum of Naples, Italy.
The collection at the Museum proves that the ancient Romans had a different approach to understanding sexuality. The collected artifacts: erotic frescoes, images of the god Priapus, sexual objects and inscriptions have been in a separate room of the Museum since 2005.
