I found this by accident. The metro TERMINI STATION had a problem and so all of us had to go upstairs and take buses to our destinations. I walked over to the bus stop and then I saw this building with all of these posters with quotes by famous Roman Generals and philosophers. I walked around to the front and found out it was the National Museum!!!
It was totally empty when I walked inside. Cool inside and you will be amazed at the things they have to present. If you are into gold coins you will love the basement, for me the coolest thing was part of the original Roman Calendar which they explain in English in great detail. They also have some AWESOME statutes that were uncovered and cleaned and look amazingly real. One is the boxer, this was worth the whole price of the ticket. The boxer is sitting down and you can see his tatoos and he looks almost alive! They have other things from a famous ship wreck, and tons and tons of artifacts that are in pristine condition. On the top floor are some giant mosaics! You will need to spend some time reading the signs in English, but if you are interested in Roman history at all this is a MUST! If you want a break you can leave and come back. I was starving and went to eat some pizza and get some coffee.
