Whilst walking from the Vatican City to the centre of Rome, we came across this museum, which has, until the 27 October 2019, a special exhibition on the Emperor Claudius. Great looking exhibition - Although, you can see many of the major exhibits from the...More

Wow, this was such an impressive museum. We visited on the evening of Fri September 20th. We were all a bit nervous about using 3D glasses and moving around but this presentation was done so well, that we were enthralled. We were a small group,...More

First of all, I want to say what a brilliant and unbelievably beautiful and special exhibit this is and I was moved to tears to finally get to see it. For those of you leaving less than 5 star reviews, do you have any inkling...More

This has a very English friendly video and is a nice monument not far from Piazza Navona. If you've seen a lot of the popular Rome attractions, be sure to add this.

The Ara Pacis is a splendid Roman monument, built by the first emperor, Octavian Augustus. Visit the permanent exhibit (i.e., the monument itself), and check out what changing exhibit they may have downstairs. Sometimes it's only okay (about a famous Italian actor, for instance), but...More

A large leaky commy greenhouse encloses a small monument of beauty, kudos to the restoration workers. eg. Museo dell Ara Pacis 10.50 euros. 1 hr. max to view. Musei Capitolini 14 euros. 1 lifetime of wonderment.

Besides the Alter of Peace, there was an exhibition re-examining the case for Emporer Claudius. I had read about bribery, murderer, and whimpy, so I was not anxious to learn more about Claudius. I personally think Ancient Romans would have been better off with Germanicus....More

Very interesting but small museum. The site of the restored Ara Pacis i.e. the altar of pesce from the time of the first emperor. Very good restoration work. Poor, inadequate presentation. Rather disagreeable staff.
