This museum was very inovative in the way they presented the ruins and explained what was there and also around it. I wish others would do this, as sometimes it is not easy to imagine how the place would have looked back in the day! We also enjoyed the second part of the visit, with the Trajan Column explained, it... More

I was never able to make much sense of ruins. A visit to the Palazzo Valentini changed this. Thanks to the multi media show you can really imagine what happened under this palazzo at Roman times. A great museum for kids and everybody else.

This was a very pleasant experience. I must say that for my two teens this was the highlight of their trip to Rome. For those like me who can't easily imagine the original place from ruins, here you won't find any problem at all. With the help of modern technology, the ruins in each room are transformed in what the... More

We visited this exhibit after reading Tripadvisor reviews, and were really pleased we did. The exhibit is an interactive experience, showcasing the remains of a Roman house. It is slightly Disney-esque, but this is easy to forgive as the beauty of the house comes to life. Rome is a wonderful city, but especially after the Roman Forum, it can be... More

this is a very interesting way to visualize how a rich families mansion looked in Roman times. Using modern technology to complete the ruins a unique perspective is given. Additionally at the end of the tour their is a documentary and a view of Trajan's Column. Not suited for very young kids. Overall, Highly recommended, but shouldn't make the top... More

I loved it and my 8 year old loved it - what else is there to say - we will go back. It was extremely interesting and educational in that they have skillfully digitally recreated the house and you walk on glass over the ruins- a definite highlight of our trip !!! Be warned though you need to book several... More

Decided to visit on basis of other Trip Advisor reviews - and weren't disappointed! Even the two teenage girls in our family group stayed interested throughout the tour. You could actually imagine life in Roman times as the recorded commentary perfectly complimented the lighting 'projections' on the floor & walls, and because you were only in a small group you...

Very well presented with latest 3D recreation technology for the ruins. The place was too dark for little children (maybe not recommended), my kids found it interesting (age 14,12 and 10). Learned about Trajan's Column in detail which was a bit long. Nevertheless, we recommend to go as it was interesting and educational and best of all it's all in... More

I always wonder what the ruins looked like in all of their splendor and full glory...at Domus Romane you don't have to wonder. Just make sure you book your tour in English!

This presentation was one of the highlights of our trip. Yes, it is a little Disney-esque but, especially with teens, it truly brings Roman ruins to life. I have no idea why this place appears in no guidebooks at all, but it really should be considered a must see in Rome.
