Palazzo Altemps really is a little gem of a museum, and would be the star attraction in most European cities ! In Rome though it is up against many heavy weights like the Capitoline and Vatican museums, however it holds its head high due to its location (opposite Piazza Navona) and its contents. Each room contains many delights such as the wonderful statuary, beautiful ceilings and quirky little inserts and detail of the original wall coverings/paintings, resulting in a harmonious and easily navigated museum. There were two exhibitions going on, both equally fascinating, but I personally loved the one with the fabulous glass collection. We visited Palazzo Altemps on Sunday past and were delighted to find that the entrance was free (not sure why but not complaining), and spent a very relaxed couple of hours there in relative peace and quiet despite its proximity to Piazza Navona. The only thing missing was a cafe, but there are so many around that area. I would thoroughly recommend it if you want to escape the hurly burly and wish I was going there again this coming Sunday !

One of the four National Roman Museums. No crowds - pretty much empty. All four of the National Roman Museums I visited were the same. Not sure why - these are arguably the best museums in Rome. There's an incredible amount to see in each one, and this one is no exception. Absolutely fantastic artifacts.

They do have toilets. Don't forget that one ticket gets you entrance into all four National Roman Museums!

I would never understand why so few visitors are there. This museum is monumental!!!
The sculptures of gods, heroes, emperors, rulers and many more beside that are just too good to be missed.
There is absolutely no crowd. Make sure you don’t miss this marvellous opportunity to witness the glorious history of rome, the archeological wonders and the true greatness of the Roman empire.
This museum was brilliant

My photo is of the statue found in the National Roman Museum called: Discobolus. The original discus thrower was done in Greece in 450 BC and many copies have been done since. The Ancient Greeks loved sports so much that they created the Olympics ca. 850 BC. The Pentathlon was created and added in 750 BC, where the discus throw was included as an event. It’s very noticeable how contorted the body becomes during the “windup” of the throw. This young sinewy Greek is much lighter than the much heavier discus throwers of today.

The Roman National Museum is in several locations. The Palazzo Altemps is a Renaissance building which has MANY Roman sculptures. Many of the statues were in Renaissance collections. There is good curation (in English) so you can get information and context on the Art. It is sometimes quite jarring to see Roman Art displayed in Renaissance setting which is itself artistic!
