I walked a long way to visit this art museum but was quite confused as to where and what was here to see. There seemed a lot of closed doors and a labyrinnth of paths leading nowhere in particular. The room I went in was...More

One of the worst “museums” we have ever been to. We paid in, 5 euro each, which was a mistake as most people do not seem to pay. The temporary exhibition was terrible, poorly organized, and a waste of time and ten euro. SKIP THE...More

We walked all the way there today to get a break from the tourist hordes and ancient art of Rome only to discover they are now closed until September or October. There was no signage on any of the doors to explain this, but I...More
