Check out the temporary exhibits

While seeing the updated 1874 building alone is worth the visit, three different temporary exhibits are usually on show. There's a roof-top restaurant and street-level cafe.

Visited for Washington Phillips collection of impressionists and modernists (ca. 100 works incl. el Greco, Monet, van Gogh) + Russian XX century art. Additional exhibition of XX century Italian design was quite impressive. Good place to visit especially on long days (on Friday the museum was closing on 22.30), Rome museums are more expensive (EUR 12-15 pp.). In halls where... More

When I visited this great museum, there were three different exhibitions. In my opinion, the path between the operas was well organized and full of suggestions for a profound reflection. Furthermore, there were a lot of operas of famous painters, like Van Gogh and Picasso. Also, the price was honest (around 12€).

There were three different exhibits that we attended, but of course, being temporary, this is bound to change. So, check first. The restaurant is not open Sunday or Monday, please note. The venue is fantastic for exhibitions, light and airy.

We were in Rome visiting family a couple years ago and toured two great exhibitions, one illustrative and artifactual concerning the silk road and Venice commercial trade. The other an outstanding collection of Robert Doisneau's post-war photographs of scenes in Paris. Nice lunch here also. Probably a lot of the attraction here depends on the content of the exhibits -... More

It was the last museum I visited but also the greatest. There were 3 exhibitons: Russia on the road, Una dolce vita? and Impressionisti e moderni. All of them was great, especially the Impressionisti e moderni. An amazing collection. The staff was great, we left our bags at entrance for free, the location looked very nice.

I am not so much of a gallery person but the building and exhibitions were excellent, well worth a visit. Please remember this is closed on Mondays. One fantastic plus was the café, we found this by chance when passing. Currently the building under some renovation so easy access to the café is from the via Milano to the left... More

The Palazzo itself is well-organized for this sort of exhibition, with plenty of space for hanging and viewing large pieces. There is currently LaChapelle there, and it was delightful to view this great photographer in such airy surroundings. Go if you have time during your Rome visit!

I love this artist and the exhibition at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni Museum is beautiful and so interesting. I think the location is perfect for this work. The price is not expensive and people are friendly. I really enjoyed my experience.

Palazzo delle Esposizioni is conveniently located less than ten minutes' walk from Piazza Barberini. The exhibition space is multi-level, spacious and designed in a spectator-friendly way. The current exhibition of David La Chapelle, artist and photographer, is a must to see, it is La Chapelle's first exhibition in Rome after more than fifteen years. It is called 'Dopo il Diluvio'...
