Wanted to love this place, but for every excellent room, there was an equally unimpressive room. Loved all the statues and who is not impressed by Michelangelo! The Musuem however lacks cohesion and I left feeling not quite fulfilled.

We used our Roma Pass for this after seeing the Colosseum, as we were unable to get reservations for the Galleria Borghese. There was a Michelangelo exhibition and many beautiful sculptures to see. I was really looking forward to seeing Bernini's Bust of Medusa, but unfortunately it was on loan to another museum, as were other works.

Although it has potential it is difficult to navigate through. Seems like they are working on updates so most of the art had no coordinating number to the audio guide not to mention that not every room had a sign or number to figure out which room you were in. If you find a staff member who will look up... More

Seeing the attractions in this museum is awesome. There is so much to see, and it is laid out very nice. There are a lot of steps, and walking but it is worth it. Very warm upstairs in the spring even. A must see.

Thinks to be aware of. First, the entrance is off of the Piazza del Campidoglio. Look it's location up on a good map. Second is that while there is just one entrance to buy tickets, you could (we did) end up buying tickets for a temporary exhibit as well as for the main museum complex. Third thing is that the...

I wish there was a place to rate the cafeteria separately because this place detracted from my visit in a significant way. There are several people working at this self service place, but it still takes 30 minutes be handed a pre made sandwich that is just sitting in the glass case in front of you after you pay. And...

This is one of the best museums in the world. It is outstanding in all respects (art, artifacts, display, layout, etc.) and is located very close to the Forum. Amazingly, it wasn't overly crowded which made it even more enjoyable. When in Rome, visit this museum!

Location: Right next to Piazza Venezia. An easy walk from the Centro Storico. The place: Crazy good! It's quite a large museum with beautiful works by some of Italy's greatest artists. The museum boasts gorgeous sculptures and tons of artifacts that were excavated from nearby sites (think: Colosseo, Foro Roman and Palatine Hill, among other places). As well, you can... More

My favorite museum in Rome so far. Can spend minimum half day in there and save some time for the beautiful terrace...

The statues and paintings are amazing. You need at least 2-3 hours just to stroll along everything. And you get up close an personal with the artwork. Beautiful!
