Think this should be listed under Palazza delle Esposizioni. Great exhibition space and exhibitions and excellent bookshop too

We travel to rome once or twice a year but usually in summer and its closed so we always thought would be great as it looks great from the outside.
ok this time we got here on novemeber so we enter, boy what a disappointment, the interior is ultramodern nothing like the exterior.
the national geographic exhibition is a lie, those pictures are not national geographic unless we are talking amateur pictures from your shot targeted on italian region. Trust me YOU can take better pictures. More to the point the pictures that you see in the front as advertise are not inside, its the 4 or 5th edition and it seems all the material makes reference to the first one.

Ok if you manage this place im waiting for an invitation to make an exhibition it will be far better than what I saw, no theme no relation, the only theme appeared to be "people that doesnt want its picture taken attitude"

The worst part is costs like any good museum 15 euros for my wife an me. They force you to go across the bookshop to leave! there is no other way

The bookshop is nice but you can access it for free entering its own entrance at the left side of the building.

Before someone says I didnt visit all the places, its all the same. there was three other ways:

forum: closed door
workshop: closed door
second floor: forbidden on the elvator and unaccesible by stairs at the moment.

Worst expirience in rome ever! I always like to take photos, I didnt even turn my camera on or I care to find if i was allowed to take photos!

The National Geographic 125 year photo exhibit is spectacular to look at. The years of images bring to mind some wonderful world events. Whether Emory Kristof's amazing image of the rusty bow of the "RMS TITANIC" or some of the wonderfully powerful images of animals; these images will move you. Unfortunately the Palazzo delle Esposizioni may not. With only one exhibit in house ( you can see most of it online ) the visitors were few. The building looks wonderful and there is plenty of very empty space for other displays etc. The lack of anything else was disappointing.
I recommend the National Geographic exhibit if you can afford the relatively reasonable admission fee - there are several discounted rates, including young, student, old, military etc.

"White Women/Sleepless Nights/Big Nudes". This exhibition consists of 200 photographs from Helmut Newton's first three legendary volumes. To quote from the leaflet "His models are systematically portrayed outside the studio, in the street, often in sensual poses suggesting that he may well have been using fashion photography as a mere pretext for producing something totally different and far more personal". Highly recommended for lovers of photography, fashion and the man himself. Open until 21 July 2013.

We visited the exposition of Helmut Newton, photography, really beautiful and impressive.
The expo is rather new in an old building, which is super.
