Roman Ship Museum at Fiumicino Airport

Does anyone know if this museum is open now and, if so, what the hours are?

Thanks!

Many thanks!

How recent is your information? According to this site, it has reopened, but I have no idea how stale this information might be:

The Beni Culturali site, which manages all archaeological and historical sites in the province of Rome, says that they're closed:

archeoroma.beniculturali.it/museo_delle_navi

I had heard that they were closed a long time ago, and I think I would have heard if they had reopened. However, I can't swear on my ancestors' graves that I'm right.

I just noticed, at the bottom of the page you indicated, this little note:

" From 10.02.2002 onwards, the Museum is closed for visitors, due to reconstruction works."

So they've been "reconstructing" it for over 12 years.

You have to look at some sites very carefully - some of them are very old and out of date and it is easy to get caught out if you don't look carefully for a date and then confirm with some other sources.
