On until 8 Jan. 2017 is the 16th Quadrennial, which is billed as "exploring the most significant trends in the panorama of the contemporary visual arts in Italy." This panorama is not to my taste, with a number of electronic-technologically-oriented works. If contemporary art is to your taste, then you should see this exhibit. It only takes up a small...

If the two exhibits we saw -- the photos by Gardin and "The Caravaggio Experience" are any indication, the museum does a fabulous job of making art accessible and a real experience. You missed the Caravaggio Experience, but as another reviewer wrote, watch for it and definitely attend if it opens again somewhere else! it immerses you in paintings, parts... More

We came for the photography exhibit of Gianni Berengo Gardin and eventually meandered upstairs tot he Caravaggio Experience. We suspect that this will become a traveling exhibition and if it comes to your city it should be at the top of your to-do list.

I was moved by many of these black and white photographs, describing a very humanistic, sincere and deep view of parts of Italy and Italians of the 50's-70's. Great place to visit on a hot day.

In Rome last month we decided to revisit this museum after having a great time here a couple years ago. We were not disappointed. The first floor featured an exhibit of Fernando Botero's depictions of, essentially, events reflected in the stations of the cross in "Boterismo." Really beautiful evocative works from this Mellin artist crossing boundaries and millenia. The Caravaggio... More

A really impressive building on the via Nazionale. Home to lots of events and shows. We only had time for a quick view as we walked to the Monumnet Vittorio Emmanuels.

We went to the Caravaggio Experience which was really interesting. It was an in depth study of his work, light, character layout, biology, etc. It was great because later in our holiday when we saw Caravaggio's work for real, we were much better able to appreciate it.

The Caravaggio Experience is just that, an experience, an art installation which surrounds you with the work of Caravaggio. If you are looking to see original Caravaggios then this is not for you, there is not a physical painting in sight, but if it is paintings you want then there is enough of his work scattered among the churches and...

Its a increadible video and audio instalation; on entering we were fully immersed in an experience of multi-projection imagens, with fragances and music lasting 48 min. The installation is divided into sections each of which addresses a key theme related with Caravaggio! It is a powerful and totally original contemporany approach to explore Caravaggio geniality, a unique sensorial experience... 12.5€/person
