Near Metro Flaminio, you can find this hidden little museum that covers the private collection and most important works of Hendrik Christian Andersen, and you can visit it for free in less than a couple of hours. Nice sculptures and paintings that will definitely add up to your visit to the Eternal City.

This place is close to Piazza Del Popolo and is not very popular with tourists because it is a bit of a walking distance to the metro stations. Also, museums which are not well marketed tend to be less popular with the tourists. Anyway, this place is a great exhibition of the sculpture and art work done by the great... More

This museum lies in a residence area of the city, a bit away from other attractions, but still easy to access from Piazza del Popolo/Piazzale Flaminio (Metro line A). At first, it looks that the two rooms are just packed with sculptures in bronze and plaster, randomly lumped together in too small rooms. The sculptures look like a strange cross-breed... More

This is a true "insider". Not very far from Piazza di Popolo (and a good destination for a rainy day) is the House of Henrik Christian Andersen. He was an artist and his former house is densly populated by his designs. He had the idea of an ideal town - I was reminded a little of the bluprint for Canberra... More

I am a lover of museums and art, but must say this was a bit disappointing. Maybe because the guide read from a manuscript and didn't once look at us. They should work on that. Be more enthusiastic about the guiding. But the museum has some interesting sculptures and an interesting story.

I agree with the other reviewer - this is a little museum that deserves to be seen. It is such a pleasure to have some space to admire the pieces, rather than elbowing for a view. When I visited, there was also an exhibition of Liu Bolin's work, which suited perfectly. It runs 'til autumn '12. Whatever takes Bolin's place... More

This almost unknow museum in Rome deserves to be seen. Everytime I go there, I am the only visitor...in a way, I love it as this very unsual place deserves silence...The gigantic gypsum statue are remarkable...and take a close look at the faces on the male, female and child statue....you will be suprised. After seeing the "normal" museums go see... More

Staying in Parioli

Neighbourhood Profile
Young and well-to-do families are the street flavour of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has several great sporting clubs known for tennis and riding, a wonderful modern art museum, easy access to the zoo (Europe’s oldest), and is nestled around Rome’s very best parks including Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Glori.
