  • This futuristic building opens the doors to this, allowing you to get in touch with the contemporary works of art that capture the attention, have fun, make you think. The Museum welcomes visitors in large spaces and leads them through a trip extra-ordinary full of genius, creativity and practicality of implementation. Rome, as the other capitals of the world, finds himself in this type of Museum, a current size, between glorious past and future to invent. You are passionate, experienced or merely curious, plan a visit, you will see, will amaze you. Sure, the Maxxi may still grow at the level of amount of works on display, but it is on the right track. Great idea to organize conventions and other events, to promote and enhance the Museum, letting the art in everyday life. The staff are friendly, although, in my opinion, should be educated on some basic information for tourists, like the nearest public transport stops. "The tip": check the promotions offered by the Museum. You will find affordable rates and free visits to the permanent collection; so, if you are "beginners", you can gradually awaken passions to contemporary art. Be amazed!
