A pleasant small museum in a jewel box of a palazzo, the museum focuses on Napoleon (who never came to Rome), members of his family (including his mother and sister Pauline, whom later came to live in Rome after Napoleon was exiled), his empresses and son (the so-called "King of Rome"), and descendants of the imperial family. There are works of art (including particularly lovely watercolors of Pauline Bonaparte's Roman villa), furniture and decorative arts, Napoleonic relics, and family mementos. And, of course, lots of regal portraits and busts of Napoleon himself. It's a pretty and interesting museum if you have an interest in the subject. Note that as of this writing it was free to enter on the Roma Pass (after your first two choices).
