  • A very interesting visit, the Museum holds important works of Republican and Imperial age as objects in bronze, bone and gold from the ancient Romans workshops of Praeneste Palestrina, or the Roman statuary with liricati republican mosaics, busts etc But you can also admire the three works that are unique in the world: the statue of Fortuna primigenia or Isis-Fortuna the mosaic of the Nile (the oldest Hellenistic mosaic) and slab Grimani. The Museum is housed in the palazzo Barberini, built the imposing sanctuary of Fortuna primigenia. The Palace is worth a visit, and so the sanctuary can be visited on the same ticket in the Museum. Too bad the ticket office at the base of the sanctuary was closed so we have to rise to make a ticket and then descend and ascend! The sanctuary closes at 16 and a visit to the whole complex (Museum + sanctuary) two hours about then get organized! Go by car to the Museum because walking is really a tough job! You go to the bar of the Museum a truly alternative and interesting!

  • The Museum is located in an ancient temple, which in turn had been built a Renaissance palazzo, marvelous hosts mosaics, sculptures ... so even the building itself is a monument

  • Very interesting and well organized exhibition and a marvellous view.
  • What's more interesting are the beautiful mosaics, once into the hole where today there is the square with the Cathedral, including the flooding of the Nile. I recommend using the information boards scattered in theaters, that are well made and give useful information and not too lengthy, especially on the mosaic. Do not forget the cryptoportico, which appears closed because some custodian has the nice idea of constricted, so that those who pass is not attempted to disturb, but instead is open and well worth a sight for the grandiose structures (plus a curious depiction of a "beauty contest" from Roman times).

  • I read many reviews about the Museum, what else to say? actually it seems incredible that it does not adequately publicized (moreover with all there is in Rome, tivoli, ostia antica etc, it would take much longer than normal time a tourist has to see a mostly!!) I invite anyway, Romans and not planning a visit, also the town of palestrina is full other sights (casa di pierluigi , Sanctuary of fortuna primigenia, etc. and good restaurants, we couldn't take advantage of a guide but two ladies controlling the salt in the Museum (Giulia and Josephine) are lavish of information and with a smile, very interesting mosaic with the flood of the Nile and in case a ring (say carvillo) in foil shaped oval bezel , which opened with a gemstone cabochon cut crystal. do not underestimate the panorama in 180 degrees from sailing to calatrava, lepini mountains, the sea and the valle del sacco,

  • Museum on the site of a majestic Roman temple stepped on whose remains he adapted the current building. Excellent exposure. I found it nice that there was open all day so we made the most of the time. Staff really friendly and helpful.
