We tried to visit last week while in Rome, but a sign on the door advised it is closed for maintenance, There was no indication of when it would reopen but the sign looked as though it had been in place for some time. There...More

Some interesting pieces here. Good stories of crime and some morbid torture machines. Would recommend as a stop on the way to somewhere else. Only took about 30 minutes all up.

It was really worth the visit. It is perfect place if you want to find a place which is not crowded. I was there on a thursday morning and I was there alone the whole time.

First you enjoy a long walk along via Giulia with splendid, sixteenth century palaces. Even today the area is secluded though, of course tourists are marching along but very few cars. Museum is somewhat hidden - look for Sachetti Palace-- it is next to it...More

This Criminology museum came recommended to us as a cool place to check out. This is a pleasant walk from Vatican city, so we stopped here after our Vatican City tour. Although there is some English, it’s mostly all Italian – which I get- but...More

Got this recommendation from a book I was reading. Very interesting things are displayed, including garments used by Rome's famed executioner Mastro Titta. I definitely recommend to anyone who wants to visit something off the beaten path in Rome.

If you're around the area, definitely visit. It's on a little side-street next the police station funnily enough. Obviously the content is a bit macabre, detailing how people were killed etc., so only go if you're interested in that sort of thing. Some things are...More

Visited this museum on our last day in Rome after seeing all the big hitters. Just off a Main Street it is relatively easy to find and well worth seeking out. Starting with torture devices and ending in modern crimes, it's one of those places...More

Fascinating little museum run by the prison service. It starts with medieval torture and punishment on the ground floor working through to more modern times covering forgery, weapons, serial killers, detection methods and more. Enough English signage to be interesting although you have to use...More

Only costs €2 to get in and there is plenty to see. Lots of artifacts spread over three floors, some information is translated into English but by no means the majority so be prepared to be unsure what alot of things are unless you can...More
