The Museum of Rome was inaugurated in 1930 and was first located in the former Pantanella Pasta Factory near the Church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin. In 1952 it was moved to the eighteenth century Palazzo Braschi, former seat of the Fascist Federation of Rome. The collections of the museum consist of 40,000 pieces that document the different moments of the life, work, and customs of the city of Rome from the Middle Ages up to our days. Sculptures and paintings, many of which representing feasts, ceremonies, and various historical events are exhibited, in addition to sixteenth century and Medieval mosaics, frescoes, and ceramics, discovered during the excavations and demolitions that affected the city.

We went to visit this museum but chose not to after the rude staff members in the courtyard made us feel entirely unwelcome. We were having trouble finding the ticket office because a large van was blocking our view of the ticket office door and the other signage was confusing. The pair of staff members in the courtyard couldn't be... More

Not too exciting as a good portion closed for renovations. A lot of local Roman political sketches which will not interest a lot of overseas visitors. Maybe worthwhile when works are completed.

If you have a deep interest in the history and politics of Rome, this museum may be of interest. To be honest, we called in because it was warm afternoon, it was near by and we hadn't been to it before. It's full of painting and busts of famous Romans and currently has an exhibition of political cartoons which are... More

Museo di Roma is located on the Piazza Navona and houses a collection of artworks by numerous different artists. The architecture of the building is decent on the outside but better once you get inside the ring of the palace. Entrance to museum is usually 11 euros but is right now 9 euros because the top floor is closed. The... More

This museum probably isn't on anyone's "must see" list, but, if you are hungry for more insight into the history and development of Rome, particularly in the 17th thru the 19th centuries, you should pay this place a visit. It's displays concentrate on the people who were the movers and shakers of Rome during this period, Popes and Cardinals and... More

This museum draws you in. Just looking at the magnificent staircase seems to beckon you inside. When I visited the museum there was a fantastic display of serpent artwork from all over the world on display. On the opposite side of the courtyard there was a photographic exhibition from SilvioNegro and Valerio Cianfarani. Definitely well worth the two hours browsing

Situated in Palazzo Braschi, not so famous like other Rome attractions, but still worth of visiting, especially if you have already visited all 'must sees' and have plenty of time just to enjoy vedutes of this grandious city. You will enjoy the magnificent palace (Pius VI was from the Braschi family), its permanent exhibits, and the view to Piazza Navona.... More

Not a "do not miss" but perfect for us after an extended stay. That magnificent stairway is worth a visit and we found the paintings of Rome done 400-500 years ago gave real insight into the city and its people of the time.

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
