The building itself is worth a visit, cleverly reusing old industrial property in a very creative way. The 2 temporary exhibitions we saw were outstanding and it was a joy to explore the complex, from the atrium to the rooftop "piazza".

We are big fans of the MACRO museum. Housed in what was once a Peroni beer plant, the museum also has an interesting modern wing. The complex is soaring at times yet somehow manages an intimacy and playfulness (like walking a catwalk over some of the exhibits). We found several interesting exhibits while we were there, as well as a terrific cafe/bar and rooftop area. And the bathrooms are fabulous! Note it's somewhat pricy for the tickets: check to see what exhibits are open before going.

The buildings of both MACRO and Maxxi are exceptional architectural artworks themselves. Everybody always visits the ancient ruins and old churches in Rome, but these musea are absolutely worth a visit.

Only 2, yes two, temporary exhibitions were on when we visited. There is an argument I should have done more research before going but there wasn't a hint of a warning from the lady at the ticket desk (speaking of whom was incredibly rude and unhelpful).
The price of 12 euros is therefore daylight robbery (its dearer than the Borghese Gallery!). As others have mentioned, I would pay 2-3 Euro MAX to see what we saw.
Given also that the museum is quite far out compared to the other attractions, please dont waste your time like we did trekking out to this empty trap. I'm a huge fan of modern art and was left reeling in disappointment.
