This is one of 4 sites which are included in the same entry to the National Museum of Rome- it's tucked away off one end of the Piazza Navona and consists of a decent collection of sculptures. There are also some more modern displays of small artefacts including pottery, jewellery, glass ware and other household items. What makes this such a great museum though is the palazzo in which it is housed. Room after room of frescoes, wonderful ceilings and a peaceful courtyard with fountain. There is also a beautiful chapel on the top floor. Definitely worth a visit for the building itself if you've purchased a ticket to the National Museum.

The wonderful Palazzo Altemps Museum is near Piazza Navona. Its collection of statuary was second to none. If you are into classical statuary then this is the museum for you. Wonderfully laid out modern museum with loads of space which is what this type of statuary needs. Highlight included the classic statue of the Gaul killing himself and his wife - it is assumed to have been commissioned by Caesar to celebrate his victories over the Gauls because it was found near Caesar’s residence. Dionysus is portrayed Apollo like with a satyr and a panther. Roman copy around 150 AD of a Greek original from the 4th century BC. A colossal sarcophagus with a battle scene between the Romans and the Barbarians. Enjoy.

Loved this place. I am an Antinous fan(greatest love of Emperor Hadrian), many touches of him in this old and splendid palace - looking medieval - and reminding me about Florence.

We gave up queuing to get into St Peter's Basilica as it would have taken hours to get in, so decided to absorb the feel of the city instead. We came across this museum as we walked around and decided to give it a go. The statues are spread out across a restored Palazzo. One or two treasures there like the Ludovisi throne and sarcophagus as well as the Gaul.

Very few people there so pleasant to walk slowly around. Beautiful Loggia of Delights on first floor.

Probably not one of Rome's must see museums but worth going to if you have the time and sculpture is your thing.

We spend some time to see Altemps. Several statues no explanations just like a pile of stuff with no meaning don't bother visiting especially if you don't have plenty of time
