    My experience was unexpectantly pleasant
    I will divide my review: 5* is for my own visit experience. We didn't even plan to visit here, it was lunchtime and the closest place was the cafeteria of this art gallery (will follow) since our next destination was still closed due lunch so we decided to spend 1-2 hours here. In reality I wasn't that enthusiastic to visit (I'm not so modern) but it turned out to be unexpectantly pleasant. Klimt, Cezane, Monet, Van Gogh, Warhol, Miro, Mondriaan, Pollock, Lega, Modigliani, de Chirico and many other interesting ones. There were other quaint exhibits, colorful, it was a thumbs up experience. 3* We lunched at their cafeteria (Caffe delle Arti) before visiting the gallery and we had some sandwiches (just OK) but service was a way snobbish; clientele were mostly socialites and white-collar workers. 2* Was reading the other reviews :( found an article from a local art expert criticsizing how bad the main masterpieces absence were handle, at least a small note apologizing the absence but at this time, hopefully they are back in site now...

    Had a good time here!
    This was a nice museum for a solo day in Rome! They have a ton of different exhibits, I especially loved the old Italian clothes in the fashion exhibit. The museum is right next to the park so do the park and then go to the museum to cool down and look at some art!

    A nice surprise while in Rome on a rainy day.
    Our visit to this museum exceeded expectations. The curator provides varied collections and exhibitions within an architecturally significant facility. Easy to get to if you are near Villa Borghese. Even the two 8 year old children with us had a good time and we were there about 90 minutes. If you have some free time while visiting Rome, you should consider visiting this gallery.

    Sprawling art experience
    Very spacious gallery with plenty to see. You are free to wander the museum as you see fit. There are also some comfortable sofas set out for visitors to sit on while admiring certain pieces. Many different styles of modern art on display in a peaceful and airy setting, including many works of Picasso. Pascali's '32 mq di Mare' is a must see!

    Amazing experience
    My girlfreind and I visited this museum and it was amazing. Because we’re under 25 we only paid 2 euros each! The museum contains everything from classical art from Van Gogh, a butchered horse and the story behind J.R.R. Tolkien and his countless collection of stories.

An enormous building housing contemporary & modern art along with some old masters. Easy flow with many rooms. Some paintings are from floor to ceiling. Interesting pop art, sculptures and many pieces made from natural materials evoking much thought, questions and humor. Glad we went.

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.

Awesome gallery! We really appreciated the proactivity of Benedetta who offered to guide us through the exhibition enriching the experience with her knowledge. We wouldn't have had the same experience without her guiding us and explaining the history and details of the pieces exposed. She should be hired straight away!

Amazing gallery full of some amazing art - as well as some massive names. You wouldn't know from the guide books but the gallery contains pieces by Van Gogh, Monet, Cezanne, Miro, Warhol, Kandinsky and many more. Really nicely presented and a lovely way to spend a morning.

I would go first to have lunch in the lovely restaurant and then wander the building, which is as glorious as the works inside. Lots of familiar names and many new Italian talents. It is just a fabulous place, that will continue to get better. It felt good to see contemporary Art after days of "old" works. Just go and be happy there. Afterwards, walk back through the park, which was The Borghese's back yard.

Beautifully exhibited, large rooms, with a number of well known artworks.
The mix between modern and ancient art is most intriguing, and the creative and open-minded, free way the artworks are portrayed in reflects the approach needed to best connect to contemporary art.
An absolute pleasure to visit.

This gallery consists basically of pictures and paintings hung on walls without any logic whatsoever: beside every artwork there’s written only the author, the title and the date. No mention of the materials used, the size, the context it was realized in. Not a single word about the authors themselves. Moreover, the paintings are grouped completely at random, so you can see a photo taken in 2010 next to a 1800s painting. It just doesn’t make sense! You can only place and contextualize the artworks if you’re an expert. I could with some of them. We left after 30 minutes
