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!

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"....

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
