Galleria Borghese
#1 of 230 Museums in Rome
The opportunity to see so many masterpieces of painting and sculpture so close-up, with so few other people around you, is almost unique among all of the world-class museums we've visited in Europe and the US.
We were in Rome for 4 days and did most of the popular attractions (Colosseum, Vatican Museums, Spanish Steps, Fountains, etc) and the Museum at the Villa Borghese was hands down my favorite.

Museo Nazionale di Castel Sant'Angelo
#2 of 230 Museums in Rome
This place was lovely, right around the corner from the Vatican, this is worth going in to see and free with the Roma Pass, museums inside are brilliant and the views at the top a breathtaking, especially at Sunset.
We love a good castle, wherever we go we will visit a castle, so while many will have walked past this place too tired after a day in the Vatican Museums and St Peter's Basilica, we made sure we had time to do all...

Compared to the crowds thronging other Roman art museums like the Galleria Borghese, the Doria Pamphilj gallery was nearly empty on a Sunday morning, and it was a lovely way to spend two hours.

Museo Nazionale Etrusco di Villa Giulia
#10 of 230 Museums in Rome
Many miss this museum because it is located further away from the heart of Rome than the more popular Capitoline or Vatican Museums, but it is easily accessible from a short tram or bus ride.
It was amazing to me that in all my visits to museums around the world, there is so little Etruscan material.

The museum of the Imperial Forums in the main market hall is one of the best curated and interpreted museums I saw in Rome, and very quiet compared to similar sites.
What truly sets this experience apart from most other museum visits is that it's housed within an ancient complex -- Trajan's Market -- and allows visitors amazing freedom to wander through much of the ruins at th...

We went to the Capuchin museum today and we enjoyed perusing the museums and reading about the history of the Capuchin monks and all the famous ones.
Whole museum takes under an hour but a great break, particularly for kids, from the churches and museums dripping with history.
