Under renovation. Impressive on the outside but not a current attraction to visit in my opinion. Give it a miss.

Great exhibits when we were there: Children's books of the 70's, The Films of Pasolini, National Geographic Photographs, and the best of all, an exhibition from the Louvre's Etruscan collection, which allowed us to see the famous Sarcophagus of the Spouses. This was the first time in a long time that both the Louvre's and Rome's version were available in... More

Went there for the National Geographic 125 years exhibit and was not disappointed, what a show of worldly travels! I had travel recently in the past 2 years and could relate to a lot of the pics, shared some good memories while there. The regular exhibit wasn't much, not worth the entrance price, but if you have a chance to... More

We visited there the Pasolini Roma+ National Geographic exhibitions, both excellent. In the cellar they have a childrens books drawings exhibition and a nice caffeteria with reasonable prices. The place is very modern and pleasant and has a terrific shop worth visiting.

Great building with several expositions at the time. I went there because of an important exposition about PPP and Rome. I spent two hours watching everything. Really worthwhile.

Went there for the National Geographic 125 years exhibit in Feb 2013: wow! I visited with someone I had travelled with to more than 7 countries and it was great to share travel experiences as you witness the picturesque landscapes and meaningful photographs. The regular exhibit wasn't much, not worth the entrance price, but if you have a chance to... More

The National Geographic 125 year photo exhibit is spectacular to look at. The years of images bring to mind some wonderful world events. Whether Emory Kristof's amazing image of the rusty bow of the "RMS TITANIC" or some of the wonderfully powerful images of animals; these images will move you. Unfortunately the Palazzo delle Esposizioni may not. With only one... More

"White Women/Sleepless Nights/Big Nudes". This exhibition consists of 200 photographs from Helmut Newton's first three legendary volumes. To quote from the leaflet "His models are systematically portrayed outside the studio, in the street, often in sensual poses suggesting that he may well have been using fashion photography as a mere pretext for producing something totally different and far more personal"....
