This is the old style layout with paintings covering all walls. Just take the guide leaflet and work your way through. In the first room, one painting seemed more recent, it wasn't it was simply the work of Artemisia Gentileschi. Between daughter and father so many wonderful paintings to be seen. Take your time and enjoy, and maybe do what we did and head for the Galleria Spada.

The National Gallery of Ancient Art (Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Antica) is held at two historic palaces in Rome. These include the Palazzo Barberini just off Piazza Barberini as well as this museum branch at Palazzo Corsini in Trastevere. Ticket purchase now €15 and includes entrance to both locations within a 20 day period. Opening times are 10am to 7pm daily, closed on Monday at both museum branches as well.

The National Gallery collection at Palazzo is centred around the Corsini collection which was donated to the Kingdom of Italy at the time of the State's purchase of the palace. Here you will primarily see artworks from the late-Renaissance up until the late 18th century, artists such as Fra Angelico, Giordano, Murillo, Van Dkyke, Rubens, Reni and Caravaggio are represented within the gallery rooms at Corsini. The palace itself is also impressive. Originally built in the 15th century, it was renovated in the 18th-century by architect Ferdinando Fuga. This is what you see today during visits.

Afterwards, you make your way to the Barberini Palace branch if you intend to visit both museum locations on the same day or just continue onward with other intended sightseeing nearby.

The gallery is a typical Roman disaster of mish-mash of mediocre painting on huge walls, difficult to appreciate due to the lack of discerning choice. There are however a few treasures that make the visit worthwhile, especially if you are in Trastevere anyway. One is a Saint John Baptist of Caravaggio, not his best painting but still good, the other is a Marry and Child painting by Murillo. But maybe most charming are four early fourteenth century painting which are hidden in the last room, these are quite excellent and highly worthwhile.

With the Barberini ticket, you can also come here. Even though you can drive a truck through the front entrance, it is easy to miss because the sign is actually inside in the lobby. The gallery is pretty small. Unfortunately many of the "must see" pieces are out on loan, including the one Caravaggio.

Located in the Trastevere section of Rome this small museum in an old Palace is a bit of a disappointment.
Their Caravaggio painting is missing being exhibited somewhere else.
The place is twinned with the Barberini Palace which has a lot more to offer.

Just one excellent Caravaggio painting. And only half a dozen so-so palace rooms. Ticket is included with the Barberini Palazzo/Galleria - which is better but also disappointing. MUCH better is the Doria-Pamphilj Galleria

Beautiful baroque palace with an exquisite collection of antique art, including Caravaggio, Raffaello, Rubens, Reni, etc. It also contains The Christ Carrying The Cross by Giorgio Vasari, that was considered lost. We also enjoyed a wonderful Robert Mapplethorpe exhibition that was on view when we came. The rooms are stunning with ceiling frescoes, antique furnitures and statues. The gallery takes only one floor of the palace and requires about 1-1,5h for a visit. The ticket is €12 and admits you also to Palazzo Barberini, that I highly recommend.

Don't skip something else you have planned for this, but if you have a few hours and are planning to go to Villa Farnesina, stop in at Galleria Corsini. It's across the street from Villa Farnesina and is not crowded. The gallery hasn't changed since the palace was sold to the state in 1883, so that is part of what makes it interesting. There is no audioguide available but there are cards that explain all of the pieces in each room (in Italian and English). Photography is not permitted.

We visited here after touring Villa Farnesina across the street. We had trouble finding this Galleria, though our map showed it in a large building. We couldn't see any signs outside the building, nor were there any immediately inside. We got on an elevator, which fortunately had a sign indicating the floor of the Galleria. This small gallery is supposed to be the home of a number of famous paintings. Unfortunately, they were on loan to other galleries. There is some lovely art, but the lighting in the rooms is very poor, with a lot of glare, which detracted from the paintings. This has great potential, but we found it very disappointing.

Palazzo Corsini houses an impressive collection of "ancient art." Go for the over the top decorations of the walls and ceilings as well as the art. They have Rubens, Caravaggios and mostly other Italian artists but the collection as a whole is so worthwhile.
Remarkably very few other visitors when we went (mid November) which for me makes the experience better.
The negatives are few but important to me. The pictures were hung one over the other which usually isn't so bad but the lighting ( or lack of) makes the top paintings impossible to see. They had windows open so the sunlight streamed in and I found myself doing a ducking kind of dance trying to get the painting to be visible through the glare. However there is so much to be savored that I just paid attention to what I could see and enjoyed it immensely.
It was raining the day we went so we couldn't walk through the gardens but perhaps you will be able to do it.
After the visit to the museum, take a walk through Trastevere. There are restaurants, pizzerias aplenty as well as the Piazza Santa Maris Di Trastevere. So much to see.....
