Some of the most beautiful Roman era mosaics are displayed at the museum. Faboulous Roman coin collection.

“The best sculpture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

When you visit Rome much of the very old is in ruins and in small pieces and many of the exhibits here have that about them, but most is sufficiently intact to admire and some statues are breathtaking. Being over 65 I get in free, but the normal tickets last 3 days for 4 museums. They do not seem to mind taking photos. Cannot recommend too highly.

“A piece of ancient roman life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

Took about an hour and a half at this branch of the national museum and it was well worth it. The sculptures were very impressive but I was more taken by the mosaics an decorations that had been found in the ancient villas. The museum is very well put together and I enjoyed the fact that it was not crowded.

Incidentally, the single ticket is valid for three days and at all four branches of the national museum.

“fab frescoes and mosaics”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

We only had an hour to look around this museum, but it was so worth it- the 'garden' frescoes from the Villa, and the mosaics are quite sensational- will definitely go back. Don't know why, but the museum is not marked on the maps given out by the hotels, so we almost had the place to ourselves, in contrast to some of the other attractions in Rome!

“Interesting history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Many things come to my mind when I think people' s lives in Ancient Rome. Gigantic spa. It´s a pity that all the statues are somewhere in different museums. Hope that some parts could be restored.
