Overview

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.

This was a good place to go to see pictures. Would have liked to see more about Rome and the people. The pictures were nice. It was warm inside, which was a little uncomfortable.

Such a tiny museum. I was highly disappointed. It was basically just a tiny art gallery with nothing really of any interest. It's also terribly laid out and you repeatedly have to walk back along the same route. Wouldn't advise going, so much more to...More

We passed the Museo di Roma randomly as we were strolling the city, right around opening time. This proved to be very lucky as we appeared to have the entire museum to ourselves. The museum is laid out in a wonderful way giving you lots...More

Absoulutely awful museum. Only paintings and sculptures - and bad ones at that. You can see more roman artifacts in a public toilet. The best thing was looking out of the window. If I could give 0 stars I would. DO NOT VISIT.

An eclectic collection of Roman art and paintings. Great slice of life from ancient to 19th century times. Unbeatable views of the plaza. Well worth the 9 euros.

Not too exciting as a good portion closed for renovations. A lot of local Roman political sketches which will not interest a lot of overseas visitors. Maybe worthwhile when works are completed.

If you have a deep interest in the history and politics of Rome, this museum may be of interest. To be honest, we called in because it was warm afternoon, it was near by and we hadn't been to it before. It's full of painting...More

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
