4.6
#13 of 99 in Museums in Rome
Visit the approximately 400 Roman statues, inscriptions, and mosaics at Centrale Montemartini, an industrial archaeological site showcasing the artifacts recovered from excavations during the unification of Italy. Housed in an abandoned power plant, the museum juxtaposes ancient statues and art with the steel machinery of industrialism, bringing up interesting questions about the course of human development and civilization. Don't miss iconic exhibits like “Venus in the Boiler Room.” Put Centrale Montemartini into our Rome trip planning app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

    About 1 km after the pyramid of Cestius and Porta San Paolo, this Museum offers leaders "from work of the collections of the city who were not exposed elsewhere for lack of place,. The quality and beauty of the works (mainly statues but also a prodigious mosaic) are simply amazing. One of my places favorite in Rome, even if indeed a bit out of the centre - but so much the better: like that there are less people ;-)

    Interesting blend of old and new. Despite being a little awkward to reach is certainly worth a visit. Very poor directions to the Museum.

    Too bad for the non proximity to the centre of Rome and the price a bit ++ for my taste. Otherwise the Museum's original, beautiful pieces, beautiful volumes: nice

  • Great setting and curation. Power station itself fascinating. Collection not large but high quality.
  • This gallery has a remarkable contrast between modern machinery and classical sculpture. I've never seen anything quite like it.
  • OMG! This is such a cool museum-- ancient sculpture displayed inside a de-comissioned power generating station from early the last century. I recommend it highly. Easy to get to.
  • I love this place;it's not a so-turistic place so there is not a lot of people; it's a perfect union between ancient art and modern period. It's ...a strange museum, actually , and so fascinating!
  • One of my favorite museums in Rome. Central Montemartini is the second location of the Capitoline Museums, housing some masterworks of Roman art in a refurbished energy plant. An impressive and unusual museum whose modern impression stands out from the Renaissance palazzi filled with sculpture and paintings. Easily reached by the metro line B, Garbatella stop.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
