Beware! They will sell you that expensive ticket ( which is valid for two buildings) at any moment, even a few minutes before closing. Don't expect the woman in charge to warn you. When asked for a replacement (tickets for the next day) they just said "sorry, we can't". Then asked for a complaint form and again, they don't have,... More

The pieces of the gigantic Constantine, the original Marcus Aurelius statue, and the view from the tabularium are worth the visit in themselves. It also wasn't terribly crowded, and it was nice and cool, so it was a great place to go for a couple of hours to see some nice sights and not be frustrated by crowds and heat.... More

A very large museum with many rooms of statues and fantastic art. But what you will remember the most are the huge head, hands and feet fragments of the colossal statue of Constantine. You can wander around here without being bothered by crowds. I enjoyed this museum more than he Vatican museums for that reason. The buildings on three sides... More

Good museum with a great collection of sculptures and paintings and is located right beside the alter of the fatherland.

The museum worth a trip to Rome but watch out because even if it is written that is closed at 8pm they will kick you away even 20 minutes in advance, Italians like to eat and the idea to arrive late at home for dinner makes them angry. When you visit an Italian museum you get lost, it is not... More

We went here to be honest for the Air Conditioning! Ok, it was on our to do list but we had it planned for another day. It was a hot afternoon in June and there were plenty of people about. However the Capitoline museum had plenty of space so we weren't bumping into people (which was great). After about 2... More

I absolutely LOVED this museum, and everything in it. Full of ancient artefacts and fascinating sculptures, with more busts of famous Romans and Greeks than you can poke a stick at! My favourite sculpture is The Dying Gaul - beautiful! Also look out for the cute Latin plaques commemorating ancient Romans and their slaves, remarkable in their sheer numbers throughout.... More

All thoses marvels under one roof, what a delight. My Grandchildren 7 and 11 years old loved taking this trip back in time from... More

I went to this museum with very high expectations and sadly they were far from fully met. Just to say you understand, I love museums and I loved Galleria Borghese, but this museum seemed badly organised, badly labelled and generally not to have been created with a great deal of thought. I guess if you are a student of Roman... More

Like other reviewers, I was left a little frustrated by the museum. Its rooms are centred around single items leaving it with a threadbare feel. The signage is also very difficult to follow - the buildings do not interconnect well. However, having got lost in the underground section of the museum we did discover BREATHTAKING views of the Forum. Very... More
