“Fascinating - Rome's entire history!”
Reviewed 13 September 2012

In July, 2012 we rode the Metro and walked a few minutes to get here. It was even better then we had hoped! Our three teenage boys, ages 17 and 13 (twins) also loved it, especially the younger ones who had recently studied ancient Rome at school.

The displays were incredible with replicas of housing, household items, statues, bridges, military tools, and so on, organized chronologically. Each large room had a very well written and clear description of one aspect of Roman life or era.

We could not figure out why there were only about 4 other people we saw here in the day we visited! It was so fabulous. (though very little kids would likely be bored - there aren't any hands-on items).

“Casts, Maps, & Models”
Reviewed 4 July 2010

If you're interested in tactical military history - or if your trip is limited in time or simply to Rome - the Museo della Civiliita Romana is worth a visit. Filled with models of the ancient city, its military devices, and casts of notable sculptures housed elsewhere in Italy [some from Naples, some from the nearby Capitoline Musei], the museum presents an interesting, eclectic side trip out of the city proper. It's not easy to get to, and the short hours further complicate things, but I'm considering a second trip this year.
[It's several blocks from the EUR metro stop, hours as of July 2010: Tuesday-Saturday 9.00am-2.00pm; Sunday 9.00am-1.30pm]
