  • We stayed at Maxxi for the Film Festival and with the occasion we had lunch in the brand new and beautiful restaurant "Maditerraneo Rome". we had a great lunch, to everyone's full satisfaction. I wanted to post a review about it, with useful details but looking on TripAdvisor this nice restaurant does not appear !!! How come? ......... Too bad.

  • We wanted to see a film as part of the film festival. When we arrived ( on time ) we were told that the tickets were sold at the auditorium ( too far away to return in time for the film). Or online, b...  more »
  • The MAXXI is one of my favorite places to spend time discovering artists from all over the world. New things are always discovered. The space is extraordinary but also dispersed, characteristic of the MAXXI, leaving you that sense of incomplete and therefore with the desire to return to visit it to find rooms not yet seen. The exhibitions are always of high quality.

  • Amazing modern art. Would recommend. Plenty of thought provoking artworks. The interior of the museum (designed by famed architect Hadid) is an art work in of itself with its winding staircases that appear to float throughout the building.
  • I expected more from this place. I liked only the ground floor. 12 euro is defenitely too much for this museum but you can go after 17:30 and the ticket is reduced to 5 euro. I liked the idea of recycling tickets
  • Great museum if you look for something different to see in Rome. There are expositions from different artists like photography, visual arts, architecture. You will need like aproxima felt like 2 hours to visit it. It also has a shopping store where you can fin lovely things and also a café if you want to grab a bite. We really liked the expositions :)
  • This is a magnificent museum, without a significant art collection, in a hard to reach location. The physical building is an architectural marvel, worthy of any art museum. Unfortunately when we visited it was filled with audio visual presentations and exceptionally poor use of space. Expect to see almost no works of sculpture, and very few paintings, especially given the size of the museum. I think the curator should focus more on a larger number of varied collections to appeal to more patrons. But for now I'd recommend skipping it.
  • Nice range of international and local artists. Quite a number of levels; didn’t get a chance to see the full collection. The permanent exhibition was interesting.
