Overview
More
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.

I am note sure if we were lucky but we visited this museum without prior booking and had no issues with crowds. This is a well laid out and informative museum that can be seen at leisure in a couple of hours.

Musei Capitolini is located on Piazza del Campidoglio. Entry fee is required but you can see a nice collection of sculptures, paintings and national treasures inside. Come if you happen to visit this place.
