I stopped in here for a photography exhibition I had been excited to see. There was also a nice modern art exhibit happening at the same time and some of the art looked fairly interesting. The building itself is very nice inside and the staff and ticketing system worked well to insure social distancing. The bathrooms were spotless! Staff were all friendly and generally stayed out of the way and allowed people to just walk around and enjoy the exhibition. Well air conditioned!! This is important in Rome in July.

Lots of work going on to the exterior of the building.
Located on Via Nazionale just over half way down.
The facade is beautiful.
Well worth a visit.

Looking for something to do on our last day, we came across this Pixar Exhibit and it was INCREDIBLE. The exposition building itself is fairly small, the Pixar exhibit was only about 5 rooms, but we managed to spend almost 4 hours there!

There were a few field trips,since we were there on a weekday, otherwise it was almost entirely empty, which was very refreshing after the busy atmosphere of most other museums we'd visited in Italy.

Bonus, there's discounted admission if you are under 26, as well!

I absolutely loved this Pixar Exhibit. I went to it on a whim, on my last day in Rome, and it was one of my favorite activities. In the exhibit, I saw clay models of characters before they animated them on the computer and drawings of scenes and characters that helped form movie story lines. I am so thankful I got to see this exhibit in Italy, as it looks like it will never be in the United States.

We went to see an exhibition of photos by Italian women photographers. The choice of photos being shown was very limited and, even though there were some great ones, most of them had little artistic value. Mostly, we entered the hall thinking the whole building would be used for this, but in fact it only occupied a small portion. What a shame. If you want to visit the place, don't buy a ticket, but rather go downstairs. There was a great showing of pictures of the Dolomites, and that one was free. Nice gift shop downstairs as well.

We came across Palazzo delle Esposizioni by chance, while walking the streets of the city. We did not go inside, but only had a look from the outside, as we were there early morning and on our way elsewhere. The building itself is quite nice and it apparently has a bit of interesting history,as the Fascist government of Mussolini was unimpressed and had to modify it in order to conform with its own principles. Nevertheless the Palazzo survived and now it's an exhibition and function centre. Worth a look.

On Via Nazionale these beautiful building offers special exhbitions, right now the Hollywood Icons. The exhibition was interesting but mostly for AMericans - there were not too many tourists from other countries.

It's a nice venue, and cheap entry at 8 euros, but we were a little disappointed by the collection. It had hardly anything on Bette Davis or Judy Garland, which seems odd for something about Hollywood icons.
