We were keen to see some modern art as a contrast to all the Roman antiquities, and it was quite a trek from our hotel. Was it worth it? No, not really. The building is amazing but houses a relatively small amount of artwork, the...More

We bought combination tickets for both this museum and the one in Testaccio. I wanted to see what the contemporary art scene is all about in Italy. It was beyond disappointing. Especially, the one is Testaccio - a huge space with no permanent collection and...More

This museum (the via Nizza branch) is a little off the beaten track. We took a bus from Largo Argentina and wandered around lost for a while before finally stumbling across it. However, it was worth the effort. There were some great exhibitions on when...More

We happened to visit here during two excellent street art exhibits: an international one and one centering on the original Roman graffiti artists. The facilities were perfect for this. The museum is an extensive one, and I am sure we missed some parts, but we...More

MACRO can always be a surprise. The exhibit by ‎Anish Kapoor was strong and heartbreaking. Do not forget to go to the bathroom and enjoy the beautiful view from the lounge.

This museum is on the outer edges of Rome, but well worth the trip. It's an old brewery which has been renovated in a very contemporary architectural style, sleek and cool. The art ranges from conceptual stuff which may or may not meet your taste...More

The sink (pictured) in the ladies' room changes color as you wash your hands! The orange seating area (pictured) is also a fun place to put your feet up. This is a museum to see if you have time. It's west of the major part...More

The museum was lovely and quiet and airy, which compared to the rest of Rome is a nice welcome! However, the range of art is quite eclectic, and lacks an appeal for an international audience. Some exhibits were thought provoking and interesting, others more obscure....More
