There are wonderful sculptures throughout this main Rome museum. A large collection of Roman busts but also some rare classical bronzes and a very intact version of the discobolus.
Of great interest were some bronzes retrieved from an ancient ship, not a warship but an emperors pleasure boat. I believe the are the only artifacts ever found like these.
Most exciting for me was the top floor with it magnificent recreation of Roman interiors. Extensive and exquisite wall paintings, laid out on four walls to scale so you really feel you are in an imperial home. Many mosaics floors and walls as well. This is probably the greatest collection of Imperial wall paintings.
