The National Roman Museum are mostly sculptures but they're really beautiful, just take your time for it. Not many people when we were there but really worth it.

If you're interested in ancient Roman art and sculpture, then you will love this museum. There are some spectacular marble sculptures here (including the Discus Thrower) as well as two beautifully preserved Greek bronzes (the Boxer of Quirinal and the Prince). The museum was fairly quiet, even on a rainy day, which made for a pleasant visit. Be sure to go upstairs and take in the frescoes. The Livia ones are especially beautifully preserved.

This is the second time for me at this museum and it was worth it. It is worth seeing it all, from the ancient Roman coins on the bottom floor to the 4th floor mosaics and affrescoes from Roman villas. I am particularly grateful for the seating provided in almost every room. Most museums in Italy – including the more famous and beautiful Scuderia del Quirinale a Roma – do NOT provide any seating in the rooms, something greatly needed for anybody with back pain or any other physical problems. So this unusual exception which allowed me to rest while admiring the works was greatly appreciated.
I do not agree with one reviewer who complained that the museum was not clean. I agree that the walls along the staircase leading to the 4th floor from the 3rd could use a paint job, but with the economic crisis in Italy many museums have problems enough just paying personnel to keep them open. Near the Termini train station, it is certainly worth the visit.

I went to this museum because it was near the Diocletian Baths and included on the same admission ticket. This turned out to be my favorite museum in Rome. I fell in love with the frescoes. It is amazing how the frescoes were preserved for centuries. This museum is a must see! I also liked that there were not large crowds -- but I went early in the morning when it opened.

The museum was rated one of Rome's best museum's by my guidebook and did not disappoint. There are sculptures on the first floor - busts, bronzes and the amazing portonaccio sarcophagus, sitting under a spot light in its own darkened room. The Grottarossa Mummy is in the basement - a tiny little thing and quite moving - along with delicate wooden dolls and beautiful jewellery: pristine necklaces with clasps and stones intact, whisps of golden thread and other incredibly delicate oddments that should have crumbled away to nothing long ago. The top floor holds beautiful frescos and mosaics including four walls showing scenes of fruit trees and birds in flight - just jaw dropping. The museum was quiet and peaceful - photos allowed without flash and for personal use. Good and close to the Metro too.
