  • All architecturally charming and very well taken care of. the different areas offer both temporary and permanent exhibitions that ... the permanent part focuses heavily on photographic collections and reproduction of architectural projects. €12 entry for the full price. possibility to use the card. With the library card of Roma you can take advantage of the reduced price.

  • I honestly like the Museum of modern art expecting much better. In comparison to its foreign competitors we own. Deserves the show gravity, a boon for those interested in physics and art. Highly recommended. Good and cheap the bar.

  • If you are not a freak of building and strange exhibits... don’t go ! Simply amazing how much money was spent on these museum. Who pays for these ? Some of the exhibits are simply not worthy of being ...  more »

  • As of late January 2018 the exhibitions are thematically related and could all be summed up as reflecting the notion of 'space' - personal, environmental, urban, psychological, social, cultural and way-out-there cosmic space. This worked well through a combination of pieces from both art and architecture, that compare real cities and imaginary ones. For instance, models for proposed urban development projects, and artistic perspectives of living in urban areas. There was work from Beirut artists exploring concepts of living in conflict zones, and a special show about gravity/space/time with some artistic interpretations. There were some interactive displays where one could warp the fabric of the universe, or increase dark matter. A lovely spider was busily making a large web while her movements were audibly amplified. In fact there were warnings at the entrance regarding her presence, but she looked pretty relaxed.
  • Beautiful art collection and architecture BUT beware for architecture students who are planning to go, it is NOT FREE for you in the WEEKENDS. I am pretty sure in the website it wasn't written that way. They did mention its free from Tue to Fri for other criteria but NOT architecture students. Other than that, a nice museum!
  • It’s a breath of fresh air in outdated Rome. You can enjoy kids playing outside and use serene atmosphere inside. The cafeteria in the museum is amazing: you can sit with your notebook, take some books to get inspired, order some decent coffee, snacks and gelato. Love it!
  • The fascinating building by famous Zaha Hadid! There is only a little bit examples of modern architecture in Rome and this museum is one of the best from them. You can spend there about three or five hours with any boring moment!
  • Great show! (Einstein’s theories on space time, gravity and crisis) great use of a museum space! If there was one negative aspect, maybe invest some euros in getting the staff understand English. (Especially in the exhibition area and wardrobe - as it is sort of annoying when basic questions e.g. where’s the toilet, won’t be understood)
