We went to this museum because it is the national museum. Seems like they went around the Rome area collecting all the leftover broken statutes and pottery. Was quite uninspiring. The guidebook said there is never a crowd. We saw a handful of other people...More

With the reduced price ticket (3,50 euros for European teachers) this museum was well worth it. It houses some of the most beautiful ancient frescos from around the city (for example from excavated buildings on the Palatine Hill) and a lovely collection of mosaics, too....More

So much to see and well laid out with English descriptions. The only negative is the staff - so miserable and unhelpful. reception staff at Museum refused to smile and were unhelpful. Such a shame as the museum itself is amazing.

Down the street from Termini Station, this museum has a wonderful collection of greek statuary/roman replicas as well as roman mosaics. If you're interested in Ancient Greece and Rome, this museum would be perfect for you!
