Overview

The creation of the Capitoline Museums has been traced back to 1471, when Pope Sixtus IV donated a group of bronze statues of great symbolic value to the People of Rome. The collections are closely linked to the city of Rome, and most of the exhibits come from the city itself.

We purchased skip-the-line tickets online which saved us some time. The museums were wonderful and there is a great view down into the Roman Forum and part of Palatine Hill. The only warning I have is that the entrance to the second museum is not...More

Great little museum. As you would expect full of roman artefacts, ranging from the ancient roman period, right through to the renaissance period. The renaissance period rooms mainly pay homage to the ancient roman period also. It's worth combing with a visit to the roman...More

We visited the museum with our three children, aged nine, seven and one. The collection is incredible as is the building itself, but unfortunately some members of the staff were very unwelcoming. The children were perfectly well behaved and the one year old was safely...More

You can spend hours and hours in this museum and you won't have all the time you need to see every room and every picture. It is a good representation of the Roman culture. I really enjoyed my visit!

Albeit the experience was very good with lots of interesting artifacts, sculptures and paintings, this was shaded by observing a tourist carrying a rucksack being allowed back into the museum from the top floor restaurant area. I questioned the security guard who let him in...More

We loved this museum, so much more than the crowded Vatican. See the whole thing. Some amazing treasures here, wonderful views of the Forum, and interesting archaeology and architecture in the buildings themselves.
