  • This museum was specifically built to display two giant palace ships built by the Roman emperor Caligula and recovered from lake Nemi. The ships were destroyed by fire in 1944..... but what is left fr...  more »
  • The museum itself is empty-empty. This is understandable, 2 huge ship Roman times filled it until it burned during the 2nd world war. Attempts to fill the 2 huge shell fragments and remnants, as well as archaeological finds at nearby villas does not succeed. Empty and lonely. The benefit that their story is addictive. Museum ships need ships themselves. The idea is to restore them (reconstitute) appeared a long time ago, a keeper with pride demonstrated the first fragments collected manually in Naples.

  • Very interesting museum, wish they had more stuff to see but very worth going!
  • No authors of ancient Rome has never spoken of the ships. He supposed the existence because, in the Middle Ages, it happened that, from time to time, were caught some archaeological finds...
  • The ships actually burned 70 years ago and there is not much left. This is only a memorial for what the old museum once was.
  • Small museum but a lot of cool stuff, Etruscan pottery and art, shells of roman ships. Nemi I believe was the lake Mussolini drained to get the ships sank by emperor Caligula. Not sure if the ones on display are they but it was still cool.
  • Locals were great, arrived without Euros and the made an exception to let us in, great museum, always wantes to see the ships!
