So uninviting we thought it was closed at first. Sadly it wasn't so we went in and wasted 12€ each. Acres of wasted space painted in battleship grey and a layout so confusing we thought it must be some art piece commenting on the madness of the modern condition. Or something. The best art to be found was actually a... More

An excellent 21st century building with great galleries and facilities houses one of the MACRO collections of Art. The names of Galleries such as Galleria de Art Moderna and MACRO Testaccio etc can be very confusing when locating galleries. However, this treasure of contemporary art is well worth a visit. If you have visited the Borghese gallery or the Borghese... More

If you're sick of ancient ruins and Renaissance art, check out what MACRO has to offer. This sleek, compact museum has something totally different on all three floors, inside and out; photography, sculpture, film and cubist paintings. The visiting photography exhibit is worth it, leaving the rest of the exhibits up to your own interpretation. Have a cappucino on the... More

We thought it was going to be magnificent but instead we just saw a few pictures and what was called art that didn't catch our attention. I wanted to give it a try at the end, read what the artist was meaning with her work and thought it was a nice idea, I got into the room and it was... More

A successful exhibition hall needs to take care of its visitors, here staff could not care less. Place is not really overcrowded that you would not have time to explain your visitors with a few words how to get around and what the exhibitions are. Arrogant receptionist, cloakroom clerk overwhelmed by 4 jackets and backpack, guards who do not notice... More

We were so so disappointed with MACRO. There was absolutely nothing that struck our eyes for interest or value. It was very expensive, 13.50E per adult, and we had hoped for some worthwhile art. There were alot of photo exhibits making social statements. None sparked our interest, and we do generally enjoy good photography. There was also an xray of... More

Such a shame - this place could be amazing, but the staff look as jaded as the building and the limited amount of artworks housed within it. General feeling is that no one cares or is really steering the ship. Shop a gloomy black hole and the cafe offer looks uninviting. Waste of an afternoon
