Overview
More
The Museum of Rome was inaugurated in 1930 and was first located in the former Pantanella Pasta Factory near the Church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin. In 1952 it was moved to the eighteenth century Palazzo Braschi, former seat of the Fascist Federation of Rome. The collections of the museum consist of 40,000 pieces that document the different moments of the life, work, and customs of the city of Rome from the Middle Ages up to our days. Sculptures and paintings, many of which representing feasts, ceremonies, and various historical events are exhibited, in addition to sixteenth century and Medieval mosaics, frescoes, and ceramics, discovered during the excavations and demolitions that affected the city.

From a historical point it could be a nice museum. But the lay- out is bad, the way of giving information is unreadable, the dia show is undertitled in English but goes too fast, watch it or read it, but you cannot do that in...More

We wandered into this museum as we explored on our 1st day. As far as museums go it's ok. The flow of rooms is a little odd. It's a small museum which can also be good since you can read a little more. We enjoyed...More

Beautiful small museum with lovely views over Piazza Novano. The building at one time was where the Pope's family used to live. Well worth a visit if in the area.

A museum worth a visit if you have an affinity for Art. Large array of pieces. At the time we went there was an exhibition showing the excavation of the Colosseum and surrounding Fora. Something that you don't get to experience at the Collosuem itself....More

A bunch of paintings and a few statues. It was ok if you like art. I felt like I paid far too much for what I saw.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
