The museum is huge on several floors and buildings so give it plenty of time to get the most out of it. Good interpretation on the audio tour and you can plug a second headset into the unit so you do not have to rent individual units... 1 between 2 is fine :) We thought the huge range of museum...

You can travel to the top by elevator of walk the 320 steps - but go you must for one of the best views in the city.

This is a great place to go where the crowds are low and the art is outstanding. It is worth the trip just to see the bronze Boxer. These works by unknowns are every bit as impressive as works by the later masters.

I am so pleased to have set aside fatigue & museum burn out to visit this wonderful museum. The displays, the selection of antiquities and the informative panels make this one of the best museums I have visited anywhere - the Roman art galleries could take a note from these guys. You can take photos, talk aloud and discover much... More

I hadn't visited this before. There were very few visitors and some of the most amazing bronze & marble sculptures, ancient works of art and other collections I have ever seen. Lots of english language translations and a beautiful building to visit. The mosaics are sumptuous and unforgettable.

The frescoes, the mosaics, the marbles! It is the best, the absolute best place to see, learn about and LOVE the arts and design of imperial Rome. Best of all? We managed to be there, in a Rome simply jammed with tourists, when we had most all of the building to ourselves. Take the elevator to the top (second floor)... More

Very convenient location near the Roma Termini. We took our son and he has free admission because he is under 18. He learned a lot because of he was learning history and Latin.

I was amazed at the museum, It was right next to the termini station so it was very convenient. It wasn't very busy on a Wednesday afternoon so I had the place t myself and was able to spend almost 3 hours enjoying the multiple floors of sculpture and history. The Monsters exhibit was fascinating and I was glad I... More

If you have the Roma Pass this is a good stop as it gives admission to other sites as well. There is a couple of levels here of things to see. Plus in the summer its nice and cool !
