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.

  • A beautiful art museum that requires much of its exhibitors, or else drown in this huge building. I was here to see Letizia Battaglia.

  • The first time in a Museum of kind, beautiful experience! a dream place that stands out among the other museums in terms of cleanliness, order and professionalism from the ticket office in the coffee shop at the cloakroom service. In short, where it works well there are showing very evident!

  • ... but inside I saw little interesting and if there were no schools do not know how many visitors it attracts the exposure that is sobering. Already is out of the way and at 9 I was at the front door and I read that the Museum opens at 11 and that in itself makes me angry and I wasn't the only one, returning to Rome was impossible so we invent to spend two hours around them. Then you enter and do not give you a location you have to invent and I don't know if I've seen it all because I got tired and I went out.

  • 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.
  • The Japanese housing exhibition was fascinating, but the architecture section in general is very limited (and this is what we cane for). Also, the family discounts gave the impression that it is sort if child friendly, but there is an excessive amount of things on toddler height that cannot be touched, so prepare for endless checking on your toddler's hands.
  • Really lovely museum. I've been here twice and it's never been too crowded. The location is a little obscure, but it's totally worth the trip. You won't be disappointed.
  • Nice design, the building itself as wel as the interior and displays. But what a noise! There is a cacophony of sounds from music, documataries, interviews and instalations. I was so happy to have earplugs with me. For us it was a dissappointment not to have the quiet athmosphere we need for meeting and interpretating the artwork.
  • Beautiful modern building design by architect Zaha Hadid.
