About
The creation of the Capitoline Museums has been traced back to 1471, when Pope Sixtus IV donated a group of bronze statues of great symbolic value to the People of Rome. The collections are closely linked to the city of Rome, and most of the exhibits come from the city itself.

Can’t visit Rome without visiting the Museums. They house predominantly an impressive collection of ancient sculpture and other artifacts but also fantastic frescoes, tapestries, paintings and furniture. They are located on top on Capitoline Hill. Details you will find in guidebooks. The tickets we bought on line- it was a combined, two-day ticket: Colosseum, the Forum and the Museums. The visitors were few due to the recently only lifted restrictions so we enjoyed our visit a lot. We were there in July and the cool of the museum was a welcome bonus. Sulla terrazza there is a caffe, where we had a light lunch with a couple of glasses of Prosecco enjoying a wonderful view of Rome at the same time. A great day we loved!

This museum is part of the Roma pass free entry (2 free entries to museums for a 72-hour pass). Be aware that the museum is situated on top of a steep hill, I would recommend taking the road up to the museum when coming from the Colosseum on the other side there are steep steps to get to the museum. The Museum is fairly large, and you will need a couple of hours to visit it. The visit contains mostly sculptures and works of art…. If you do not like this type of thing then this museum is not for you.

I'm not usually very interested in sculpture, it's the part I generally skip in large museums. But the Musei Capitolini are quite delightful, it's masterpiece after masterpiece, mostly antique sculpture, and the setting is worth the visit for itself. Some rooms you can pass quickly, I also found the painting section wasn't nearly at the level of the sculpture one, but we very much enjoyed our visit with our 3 children. Don't miss the Palazzo Nuovo (which you access through an underground tunnel).

Very rude guards that make you leave 30 minutes before closing. They tell you to "go now!" and slam doors as you exit. I was not able to see some of the last rooms because they close early. I have never encountered such rude guards that make museums visitors feel unwelcomed. I regret visiting and don't recommend going there. Thankfully I was able to dispute the entrance fee on my credit card and received a full refund. A real waste of my time.

There is a lot to see here in this mish-mash of galleries and halls. But good luck seeing it all. I didn't get to see the "Time of Caravaggio" exhibition (that I paid extra for) as it was hidden behind some unmarked door with no signage. And when you DO come across something interesting, good luck finding anything about it. 15 euro entry fee, and they can't be bothered to label anything- There are just poorly designed lists at the end of the hallways, nowhere near what you're trying to identify.
During my visit guests were strictly forbidden from walking the wrong way down the halls. And no indication of how to get from one part of the complex to another- I had to walk outside through the public square, and hope they'd remember me as I re entered. What a buzzkill!
So yes, there is a lot to see here. From ancient masterpieces to 19th century paintings, but be aware that you'll need a lot of time to try finding it all.

They won't let you in without a photo ID . We had all the vaccination information, all the forms etc. with QR codes, you name it. But my wife didn't have a photo ID so after waiting in line for 15 minutes we had to be humiliated by some lady with red dyed
hair. The beauty of this is that their web site would not let me book in advance because the call-back-with-a special code feature doesn't work for international calls. And nowhere does it say photo ID required. Be warned.

Wonderful museum. Staff at the cafè, however, look tired and can be curt. Unfortunately, moreover, there was a very rude bathroom janitor on the 1st floor, impersonating a bouncer or doorman, I suppose. Wouldn't let two ladies from my group to enter the ladies' room.

It’s a museum of art in Rome so contents are delightful, however the staff are spectacularly rude, demanding and obstructive, have difficulty communicating (not just language related, they just tell you nothing then get difficult with you when there is problem you couldn’t have known about).
Not disabled myself but if you have issues with mobility there is very little but the bare minimum in situ for you.
Enjoyed all aspects of our trip to Rome but here.

Went to the Capitoline Museums today to see the exhibition "The Torlonia Marbles: Collecting Masterpieces." Had wanted to see it in April 2020, when I had a trip planned to Rome ... and then COVID hit. Fast forward to October 2021, I am finally back in Rome and this was at the top of my list, and it did not disappoint. Small but marvelous exhibition, the first room with the busts of various emperors and members of their families was marvelous.

Captial museum is really great if you are into the Greek And Roman GODS. We did a Percy jackson tour. This is great for kids as it looks at the stories from the book and ties in the statues in the museum. Maria was our personal guide and she was awesome. Note: good idea to use the locker for you bag. It’s free and easy and safe. There is slight air conditioning inside. A lot of steps. One thing i learned is the story of the 12 muses and the arts. And thus the origination of the word museum!
