#18 of 99 in Museums in Rome
MAXXI Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo, an imposing modern art and architecture museum designed by architect Zaha Hadid in 1998, features an intriguing sense of scale and space. Emanating from the honeycomb-like central hall, flowing stairways and paths connect the museum spaces, library, and indoor and outdoor galleries. The multileveled layout, enhanced by natural light that pours in, evokes the layered archaeological cityscape beyond the museum's walls.

    I've written about MAXXI in the past. I love the ambience, the cool atmosphere, sipping coffee in the outside café (very polite service I must admit) or inside grabbing great tosts. Good Wifi everywhe...  more »

    Futuristic structure is neat, interesting exhibits and beautifully landscaped, employees friendly and prepared. Not to be missed.

    Majestic architectural structure. within varying exhibitions on architecture and contemporary art. due to immense interiors, sometimes you get the feeling of empty galleries albeit landscaped. highlight the Gallery 5

  • It was just brilliant, an exciting interactive museum. Although finding the exhibits was at first confusing as 2 of them were closed and one entrance to another one was locked, even though they posted a sign next to door saying entrance. Overall a good experience, but I recommend taking a sandwich as their food is quite expensive
  • 8€ p.P., until 23. June ½ of museum closed for renovations. All VR googles did not work as well as many of the headphones. Rest was okay but a bit underwhelmed in comparison to other modern art museums of other capitals
  • Bad visitor service experience. Not clear where to enter. Not enough staff at coat check and you have to check your purse. No map so not clear where to go. Badly designed flow. Website says restaurant open till museum closes. Kitchen closes at 3pm, museum at 10pm. Boring exhibits. Not my fave and I'm a big museum fan.
  • Great building by renowned architect Zaha Bad is, beautiful spaces although the permanent collection is not very vast
  • It really uplifts the whole Flaminio area, this art palace by Zaha Haddid.

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.
