Overview
More
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.

It's on top of Campidoglio and consists of two buildings. They are filled with great examples of Roman art, especially busts. We used the Roma Pass for free admission after touring the Colosseum and Forum in the morning. If you are at all into history...More

There are many focal points worth your time on the Capitoline Hill, but I think my favorite may be the splendid views of the Roman Forum from a unique vantage point. We visited the Musei Capitolini toward evening, enjoyed the exhibits and then made our...More

Massive, jammed packed, full of statues, art, excation, everything. One of the world's great sculpture museums. Don't miss the statue of the Capitoline Wolf, the symbol of Rome. You need at least 3 hours to do it justice.

The picture gallery was closed which was disappointing but there are many other things to see. The excavations of the ancient hill fortifications is fascinating and the underground area is like walking along the Appia Antica culminating with a spectacular view of the Forum.

I navigated through this historic museum with a video guide, which was very helpful. The museum has many statues, paintings, and coins that have been discovered throughout history along with their stories. I planned on taking a short break for tea in the cafe, but...More
