The ticket is for 7 euros if um not wrong, and it's a very strange museum but amazing and different from what you may see in Rome so if you want to see something a little bit different it;s a must. The most amazing thing it's a cemetery of the Capuchin with human bones all over.

This is a must see when you visit Rome. We found it a mix of sad, macabre and fascinating. At the start it says something like 'we were once like you and one day you will be like us' and that really brought home that you were looking at human skeletons (which also made it a bit moving too).

Lighting fixture made of skulls? Sculptures make of tibia and fibula bones? These monks sure had a better sense of humor than did my grammar school nuns! Located under a beautiful, serene church, look into the 'room' sto see how the bones are displayed. Kids LOVE this place; very walkable from the metro. Warning: Little kids may be creeped out

This was not part of our tour, but one evening we had a little extra time so our tour director explained the crypt to us and of course we were interested. Everyone sees the normal sites in Rome, but if you want to take a few minutes to see the unusual, this is a must see. We were not allowed to take pictures or even talk, because it is a sacred site. The price is like a small donation and they do sell postcards. I know a few people who have gone to Rome and I am the only one that can say I saw the Cappuchin Crypt. If you miss this one, shame on you! The price is great, we only waited a few minutes to get in and it is one of those off the beaten' path kind of sites.
