Fabulous place to learn about early Roman empire through sculptures, frescoes, and floor mosaics. Complete rooms reconstructed. Very well done in a lovely palace.
This is a well laid out museum, with a fantastic coin collection charting the development of the Roman Empire and a small but very good collection of jewellery in the basement, On the top floor there are lots of statues but more impressive are the mosaics and frescoes. There are plenty of good explanations in English. Well worth visiting
This is Rome's National Archaeological Museum, full of magnificent wall-paintings, sculptures and mosaics. It is a treasure house for visitors interested in the ancient world. For art lovers, do not miss the two bronze statues on the ground floor and the incredible wall-paintings of the House of Livia on the top floor, illustrating an orchard with birds on the trees.
My husband isn't a "museum person" so our visit was necessarily brief whilst I dragged him round, and I tended to agree that once you had seen one slightly battered statue it was enough, especially having seen intact similar statues in the Vatican etc., but I'm sure they would be very interesting if you are into Roman relics. However there... More
After 5 glorious days of sunshine, we managed to get a drizzly day on our trip to Rome. What better way to spend a wet day than a trip to the National Roman Museum. There was an exhibition right as we entered (something to do with dresses, I think I blacked out from boredom) but we quickly slipped past that... More
Wonderful statuary, beautiful floor mosaics, amazing frescoes, including the "garden of Livia" make this one of my favorite museums in Rome. It should be on every visitors list of must sees and its location just up from the Termini make it an easy visit to get to.
This museum was really interesting when visited with a copy of Rick Steve's Rome. We read it and walked through the museum, learning much more than what we would have learned if we had just walked around in it on our own. I think that it was very interesting to see the highlights, learn about the Roman Empire and then... More
There are actually four branches of the National Museum. The best thing is that if you buy a ticket for one branch, your ticket is good for the other three for a three day period (4 if one of those days is a Monday). I went to three of the branches and thought this was the best one. There are... More
The mosaics and sculpture on the top floors were breathtaking. The statutory on the ground floor was also interesting, although you see a huge amount of it all through Rome. The museum was not crowded. An excellent experience.
This is well worth a visit. A modern display, although there is still quite a lot of text and many of the video screens were not working. It is quite expensive if you do not have a Roma Pass. Plus, despite the fact that we had a pass, we were told that we could not have the reduced price as... More
