Attraction details
Owner description: The vast number of exhibits here takes visitors on a journey through the Napoleonic age and the opportunity to get to know various members of the Bonaparte family and their role in history, in a setting, the Palazzo Primoli, where the characteristic atmosphere of a historic aristocratic home remains intact.

I found this Museum in a copy of Select Rome, which is a natty little guide book for interesting aspects of Rome.

It was really worth the visit. The staff were falling over themselves to assist with ticketing, cloakroom etc. I would suggest the audio guide, as the explanations are very detailed.

I came away from my experience realising that I know very little about Napoleon, and that I should perhaps read up a little bit on this amazing man who conquered, pillaged and plundered a huge chunk of Europe and then proceeded to put all his family members into "kingly" positions... what a guy!

I'm really glad that I came here on this rainy Roman day :)

I was really interested in seeing the Napoleon Museum on our trip to Rome (from Australia) as a snapshot of that interesting time in history. We trotted across town with our one year old in tow. On entering the foyer, there was some initial confusion about whether there was a cost to enter. Without saying a word, the lady attendant pointed at a sign on the wall which said tickets were €7, so I went to pay. She then rejected my €50 note (which was the smallest I had to cover a €14 bill), saying she had no change. She added, with a laugh, that I was the second person today who she'd had this issue with. I was surprised, but thought we could at least pay with a credit card, so got that out. She said they don't take credit cards. I admit that I was a bit dumbfounded. I explained that we were leaving Rome the next day and would then be going back to Australia. I was happy to pay for the tickets and would really love to see the museum. She just shrugged, so we left disappointed. Can't therefore way whether its a good museum - it may well be, but you'd better take the exact change...
