We made a point of trying to visit in the morning and avoiding Mondays, but still the museum was closed. It is a long way to travel out with the chance it will be closed. However, EUR is interesting and easy to explore, worth a look by itself.

The history of the Roman Empire, from the early Republic to the late Empire, all shown with a mixture of archaeology and reconstructions of exquisite quality. Definitely worth a visit for those who are interested in history. There's a full size plaster cast of Traians Column in the museum, fully worth the visit on its own. Note: Not located close... More

As others have noted, this museum is closed. Some sites say it is closed temporarily for "renovations." We found it completely abandoned with no renovations whatsoever in progress. Weeds growing up through cracks in the concrete, littered with empty liquor bottles, nary a human in sight. It was actually quite creepy. It has been closed, it turns out, for over... More

All over Rome you see these posters and postcards with a 3D model of Ancient Rome. Well, that model--built on orders from Mussolini--is in this museum and it is about an acre in size!! There are also models of many other ancient buildings and a full sized "unwrapping" of Trajan's column with explanations of each panel. I have been here... More

This was to be The Main Museum that we went to on this trip. It is quite a way out of the city -- metro to EUR Fermi station which is the next to the last stop on the line. We then walked 3 to 5 blocks and found the museum but we also discovered that it was closed for... More

I presume that the financial crisis hits hardest in those 'inessential' areas like museum curation and conservation but it was a pain to travel out to EUR only to find the museum closed indefinitely. However I spent a wonderful day looking at the amazing 1930's architecture of the area which is unfortunately now a huge open-air car park.

A visit to this large museum is well worthwhile. Many of the displays are models and reproductions, but this doesn’t take from the history of the pieces and the picture they give of ancient Rome. There are also original pieces. The exhibitions are very well laid out, beginning with Roman origins and the historical figures. The famous she-wolf is impressively... More

The museum was closed in 05 February, without any indication for this (I verified in the last 2 weeks of January on the internet, before the trip to Rome)

Went there today as a good way to spend a wet day in EUR, to find that it had closed (seemingly indefinitely) for refurbishment on 27 Jan 2014. There is no 'banner' on the website, and no sign up outside the museum to advise of this change.:(

This is one of the most underrated museums in Rome, a city choke full of them. The collection does not look recently updated, but you can easily see that a brilliant team worked really hard, with Italian ingenuity and elegance, to gather and exhibit a logical, interesting, creative collection.The models, information and reproductions kept there will be interesting to everyone,...
