I enjoyed this museum very much! Even my teenager had a fun time. Plan st least 2 full hours, more if you have the time.

Fabulous place to learn about early Roman empire through sculptures, frescoes, and floor mosaics. Complete rooms reconstructed. Very well done in a lovely palace.

This is a well laid out museum, with a fantastic coin collection charting the development of the Roman Empire and a small but very good collection of jewellery in the basement, On the top floor there are lots of statues but more impressive are the mosaics and frescoes. There are plenty of good explanations in English. Well worth visiting

This is Rome's National Archaeological Museum, full of magnificent wall-paintings, sculptures and mosaics. It is a treasure house for visitors interested in the ancient world. For art lovers, do not miss the two bronze statues on the ground floor and the incredible wall-paintings of the House of Livia on the top floor, illustrating an orchard with birds on the trees.

My husband isn't a "museum person" so our visit was necessarily brief whilst I dragged him round, and I tended to agree that once you had seen one slightly battered statue it was enough, especially having seen intact similar statues in the Vatican etc., but I'm sure they would be very interesting if you are into Roman relics. However there were also some beautiful mosaics and murals, a section with jewellery and pottery and a large collection of coins. Well worth a visit (but probably not with a reluctant partner!).
