About
Rome’s National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art hosts 20,000 works – paintings, drawings, sculptures and installations – and offers a great view on art starting from the 1800’s to today. This is the only national museum entirely dedicated to modern and contemporary art. A linear vision of history is utterly abandoned: in the exhibition rooms artworks are present as sediments of the long life of the museum, and those from different centuries coexist in the same space, from Antonio Canova, Alexander Calder, Giacomo Balla, Alighiero Boetti, Alberto Burri, Giuseppe Capogrossi, Paul Cézanne, Giorgio De Chirico, Marcel Duchamp, Lucio Fontana, Alberto Giacometti, Renato Guttuso, Francesco Hayez, Vasilij Kandinskij, Gustav Klimt, Joseph Kosuth, Jannis Kounellis, René Magritte, Joan Miró, Amedeo Modigliani, Piet Mondrian, Claude Monet, Henry Moore, Giorgio Morandi, Liliana Moro, Robert Morris, Pino Pascali, Giuseppe Pellizza, Auguste Rodin, Cy Twombly, Vincent van Gogh and Andy Warhol.

Just before the entrance to the exhibits there's a wonderful little study space with outlets and everything, available for use without a museum ticket! I found the exhibits very interesting, and we had a tour guide from the museum and she was excellent. Unless you are an art aficionado, I would reccomend taking a guided tour. You will definitely get more out of it!

It's art Jim...but perhaps not as you'd see it.
Nov 2020
This is a place we have studiously avoided for decades. It’s not exactly in the centre of Rome and (you know what’s coming) we are not the biggest fan of all things “modernist”. So why did we go?

Well, not everything in the gallery needs “explaining”. Some of the exhibits have a remarkable degree of “craft” to accompany overblown “concept”. IMHO it’s worth a visit simply to see Klimt’s “Three Ages of Woman”. Your choices will be different and I know it’s unfashionable in this age of binary-views – but it’s your money…

I was quite surprised to see a lot of work that more than compensated for the inevitable “Jack the Dripper” and Duchamp’s “Fountain” (replica?). So I’d say in retrospect, I did the gallery a disservice.

Saying that, the gallery does suffer from what could be called, “Pompous a$$hole syndrome”. We visited during the Covid pandemic. Almost every venue in the capital had in place, a timed booking system. Presumably introduced, when visitor numbers were assumed to be greater than they eventually were. During our week, various tourist attractions responded in different ways (I was reluctant to pre-book for obvious reasons).

Most establishments simply let “walk-ins” gain entry, due to the fact that they were empty. I don’t mean just a few folks – I mean nobody. So when we arrived at the gallery, we were asked “Had we booked”? I said no and as the “gatekeeper” pondered over this dilemma, I counted the three…yes three people I could spot inside the vast atrium that holds the ticket office, coffee stand, cloakroom etc. This did not look anything like a dangerously crowded, Covid “super-spreader” venue. The clock was ticking as we stood and waited and if the regulations said no – then I’d saved €20 and we would just go for a stroll through the beautiful park.

Eventually however, we were allowed in, (after getting the “green-light” from the ticketing persons), and wandered the galleries in the presence of around twenty to fifty people – in total. No room was ever occupied by more than four people during our entire visit. Empty doesn’t even begin to describe it.

In some ways I wish they had said, “Computer say no” but then I think of the Klimt, a jaw-dropping monumental Canova statue and I think – “Yeah…just about worth the money”.

Good collection
Jul 2020 • Couples
A good collection of modern art. It touches on most major areas of western modern art. A lovely antidote to all the renaissance art you might be seeing. Both give each other context.

We spent a two hour and that cover the collection.

Beautiful gallery of modern and contemporary art
May 2019
The National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art is a museum in Rome, located in the Palazzo delle Belle Arti, designed by architect Cesare Bazzani. The Gallery houses a really good collection dedicated to Italian and foreign art from the 19th century to today. The National Gallery is a great place and a great museum. The permanent exhibition has small and large masterpieces that are really worth seeing.

Nice museum
Feb 2020
Worth a visit, the Galleria Nazionale features some of the most famous italian artists of the XXth century. It is not too large, a one hour visit is enough, but you can spend a whole afternoon in there if you want to enjoy its calm and peaceful environment. The bar/restaurant is also very nice.

Cool place to view modern art
Jan 2020
Take a walk through Villa Borghese park amongst Italian families enjoying a day out in its beautiful gardens - hire one if those weird cyclemobiles if you have a mind to - and then arrive at this beautiful museum, packed with modern art. The star attraction for us was Duchcamp’s ‘Fountain’, the most important artwork of the twentieth century, but this is only the highlight of a truly superb collection of modern Italian and international art (Pollock, Van Gogh, Kandinsky). As a novel touch, these modern works are displayed alongside classical Roman sculptures that seem to have intruded meaningfully into this modern space. Admission is around €15. And the restaurant is also a very good place for lunch with reasonably priced, tasty Italian food on offer.

Just right

Smallish museum with four main galleries and a super café. Easily reached by public transport and reasonably priced. Well worth two hours of anyone's time.
