The Monumental Complex of the Bourbon Prison, whose function as a penal institution was abandoned in 1987, hosts various sections of the Museo Irpino in three pavilions once used for male detention: the art gallery, the lapidary, the open depot, the Risorgimento section, the scientific section, and the new exhibition path: Irpinia – Memory and evolution. In the same pavilions, some spaces are used for cultural services, such as the CRBC, the Regional Centre for Cultural Heritage of Naples, the MIBAC catalogue office, rooms for temporary exhibitions, an auditorium and a conference room.

Until it was closed in 1987, the Bourbon prison played its role as a district court. Since the early 2000s it has undergone major renovations that have made it the precious monumental complex we see today.
