  • Located near Villa Borghese Rome Museum of modern art. After a visit to the masterpieces of the Renaissance, this exhibit is perceived quite peculiar. Brightness of paints, sharp eye, glass, modern paintings, strange sculptures after fine forms of white marble, it is still an amateur.

  • In many cities in Europe and the world, there are museums of modern art, and Rome is no exception. The truth is, he has appeared most recently in the year 2002. In the huge halls of the former brewery housed the first exposition, then there was built a modern exhibition hall. Here you can see paintings by contemporary artists and idiosyncratic sculptures and whimsical artifacts in General, there is no limit to human fantasy. Come out of the Museum under the strong impression.

  • My boyfriend and I visited this Museum recently and were blown away. The works are very impressive, well exposed and well described! For those who love contemporary art is a wonderful Roman lap. We were a bit disappointed by the area gadgets that actually consists in a library by exorbitant prices, which moreover contains no souvenir of the Museum. The bar is very cute and matched to the surrounding style. Another sore point is that the Museum is located slightly out of the way for those who travel by public transport or on foot. In general I recommend it because it was a really nice experience.

  • MACRO - Don't bother. Friday morning, the place was a graveyard. Staff is about as helpful as a dead battery. Ticket receptionist had some kind of animosity defect, gift shop did not have change for a 10 on a 6 Euro purchase. Exhibits were OK, but building is confusing, no obvious path, doors closed without signage. Bridge is incidental. Looks good, but worthless as an exhibit space. Orange structure in core was closed, no signage, no obvious purpose, no benefit to the architecture. Map handout was irrelevant. Too bad Rome is spending so much on a staff who hate visitors and a space that lacks the energy that art offers. Go to MAXXI and find some relevant culture.
  • Deadbeat exhibitions. Nice building.
  • Poor signage and unhelpful staff.
  • The building itself was more interesting than the artworks placed inside the museum.
  • All in all a nice Museum with interesting rooms. Shame about the organization that is scarce and little attention to General controls (especially!)
