LaChapelle at Palazzo delle Esposizioni: well worth it!

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'...

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.

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
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.
