This museum is stunning in its contrast between 2000 year old statuary and the inner machinery of the power plant. It’s 2 to 3 floors of statues, busts, and a few mosaics. By and large, the statues are in great shape. It’s not terribly busy,...More

I had the opportunity to visit this museum some months ago and I have to say that I was surprised. I got off the metro b at the station Garbatella and what I saw is a gray area, not a clean one, with nothing interesting...More

The Capitolini Museum in central Rome can get quite busy but you can see part of their collection at the Centrale Montemartini in much less crowded conditions and in a unique context (the building itself was previously one of the first electric generation plants in...More

This was my third visit to this exquisite museum set on the site of the disused gasworks. The white marble busts and statues are beautifully offset by the black 20th century machinery. It's not a big museum, just right for a couple of hours where...More

When I read up about Basilica San Paolo fuori le Mura in my guidebook, I saw an introduction on this museum and immediately decided to go, as it's not far away from the basilica. What an ingenious idea to turn this disused power plant (with...More

The “Centrale Montemartini” was born as the first plant for the production of electricity for the city of Rome and is today a beautiful example of industrial archeology. Reconverted into a museum in 1997, it is today one of the seat of capitoline museums. The...More

What a fantastic museum! A really successful juxtaposition of recent industrial history and classical sculpture. Easily accessible from Garbatella metro but far from the teeming crowds of central Rome. An inspiring space.

In the huge halls of the former power station, successful marriage between the old monumental machinery and the much older roman sculpture, with some plastic rimes between the curves of both, or impressive contrast between the materials, colours, shapes, sizes. The museology is one of...More
