I think this was a Mary Beard recommendation and it is certainly worth the trip. We arrived by bus and were very struck by the building itself, which is a decommissioned power station. It provides a perfect setting for marble sculptures and mosaics, which sit...More

A disused and beautifully restored thermo-electric power plant converted in a branch of the Capitolini museum. The engine and boiler machines are the stunning background of stunning Roman statues and mosaics. The contrast of colours (oh! the deep intense black iron with the smooth white...More

A hidden gem of the main tourist area in Rome. All of the statues here were excavated in the late 1800s and 1930s and are displayed in a abandoned power plant that got restored. I went here since it was close to where we stayed...More

Delightful array of Roman busts, statues, mosaic and sarcophagi set in a disused electric power station decommissioned in the 1960s. It was particularly enjoyable as it’s slightly off the beaten track meaning it’s free from the tourist hordes.

This museum is stunning in its contrast between 2000 year old statuary and the inner machinery of the power plant. It’s 2 to 3 floors of statues, busts, and a few mosaics. By and large, the statues are in great shape. It’s not terribly busy,...More

The Capitolini Museum in central Rome can get quite busy but you can see part of their collection at the Centrale Montemartini in much less crowded conditions and in a unique context (the building itself was previously one of the first electric generation plants in...More

This was my third visit to this exquisite museum set on the site of the disused gasworks. The white marble busts and statues are beautifully offset by the black 20th century machinery. It's not a big museum, just right for a couple of hours where...More

When I read up about Basilica San Paolo fuori le Mura in my guidebook, I saw an introduction on this museum and immediately decided to go, as it's not far away from the basilica. What an ingenious idea to turn this disused power plant (with...More
