All over Rome you see these posters and postcards with a 3D model of Ancient Rome. Well, that model--built on orders from Mussolini--is in this museum and it is about an acre in size!! There are also models of many other ancient buildings and a full sized "unwrapping" of Trajan's column with explanations of each panel. I have been here... More

This was to be The Main Museum that we went to on this trip. It is quite a way out of the city -- metro to EUR Fermi station which is the next to the last stop on the line. We then walked 3 to 5 blocks and found the museum but we also discovered that it was closed for... More

I presume that the financial crisis hits hardest in those 'inessential' areas like museum curation and conservation but it was a pain to travel out to EUR only to find the museum closed indefinitely. However I spent a wonderful day looking at the amazing 1930's architecture of the area which is unfortunately now a huge open-air car park.

A visit to this large museum is well worthwhile. Many of the displays are models and reproductions, but this doesn’t take from the history of the pieces and the picture they give of ancient Rome. There are also original pieces. The exhibitions are very well laid out, beginning with Roman origins and the historical figures. The famous she-wolf is impressively... More

The museum was closed in 05 February, without any indication for this (I verified in the last 2 weeks of January on the internet, before the trip to Rome)

Went there today as a good way to spend a wet day in EUR, to find that it had closed (seemingly indefinitely) for refurbishment on 27 Jan 2014. There is no 'banner' on the website, and no sign up outside the museum to advise of this change.:(

This is one of the most underrated museums in Rome, a city choke full of them. The collection does not look recently updated, but you can easily see that a brilliant team worked really hard, with Italian ingenuity and elegance, to gather and exhibit a logical, interesting, creative collection.The models, information and reproductions kept there will be interesting to everyone,...

We completed a Yale University MOOC on Roman architecture. Professor Kleiner made numerous references to this museum - the value of the building models. We are very glad we went. It reinforced what we learned in the course and made us much more aware of what we were seeing at the Forum, Trajan's Market and Column, and more. If you... More

We made a morning trip to the Museo della Civilta Romana which is easily combined with a wander around EUR to see sights such as the "Square Colosseum". Tickets are available for the museum on its own or as a combined ticket with the planetarium (which we opted not to visit). The museum is split between two itineraries - a... More

Okay, maybe you'll read that this place closes at 2. Why? Because they don't give a damn about their visitors. You probably WON'T read, though, that the ticket office closes at one. And that if you arrive at 1:05 they'll tell you to get lost. Offer to pay full price; tell them you promise you'll leave in twenty minutes. They... More
