  • We were staying in Trastevere and having coffee and looked across the street and saw this little museum. They were having a Vivian Maier photography exhibit, and we'd seen a documentary about her and ...  more »
  • the museo di Roma in Trastevere is in the heart of the beautiful neighborhood, walking distance from Ponte Sisto, after which you must enter in the street left behind the lungotevere. the permanent collection is located on the top floor while the ground floor was under construction when there's been a photo exhibition. was not open but pictures son managed to see them too because exhibited in the corridor. one part could be seen going to the bottom to go up to the first floor and another part I could see her quietly because the bathroom is down the Hall to the left of the ticket office. I felt it was nothing. uninteresting picture. Some are over in a room parallel to the corridor leading to the exit and at Insolera which definitely deserves. June 24 ending 17 September began. the small permanent collection consists of some twenty watercolors of "Roma lost" by Roesler Franz, romano at the expense of the surname, which he painted about a thousand views, city views with fountains, squares, etc., at the end of the 800. because all you cannot expose them to the floor of the Hall there is a screen that allows you to see the others. Unfortunately it didn't work very well. There is also a map showing the neighborhoods where he created his works, with a biography of the artist. are few but really beautiful. especially for those who know Roma is a good opportunity to see what it was a century ago. especially suitable for the Romans, even more than for tourists! in 7 small halls on the left you can see popular reconstructions of environments and situations of Rome instead of that period. It starts with a beautiful crib visible in the first window to continue with the Pipers, the scribe who offered to write letters on behalf of fellow citizens mostly illiterate, the tavern, the traditional dance of scamper, the wagon for transporting wine and pharmacy, reconstructed with original furniture! each room comes with a very useful and effective explanation to understand how it is being viewed, customs and traditions of a vanished past. beautiful!! the last room is devoted to the poet Trilussa. There are objects in his studio: portraits, paintings depicting historical spots, vases, knick-knacks, etc. it's how much you can see. crossing the corridor at the bottom right you can see how I said the photo exhibition by Italo Insolera. in 3 rooms in which it is located are exposed about fifty black and white photos, including those taken between 50 and 70 years in various Central and peripheral districts years Romans and in other Italian regions. those on Roma are in the first room. I'm fifteen and show a Saint Peter's square crowded with tour buses, shacks on the outskirts of the city, the street sweeper with his cart, grand palaces recently built in bleak settings ... the second room is dedicated to his travels in Italy between Sardinia, Sicily and Italy Centre. the last, tiny, Spain and North Africa 6 exposes images taken. are the least interesting. Unfortunately, unlike other municipal museums even larger-see the Napoleonic Museum, that of the Roman Republic and Garibaldi memory, the Canonical House Museum in Villa Borghese, etc.-is not for free. It would perhaps be appropriate to make it so or at least provide for a reasonable ticket for anyone visiting this and that which I believe there is connected: the Museum of Rome, a short walk from piazza Navona, containing many pictures-ready screens-Roesler Franz. with great luck I was there the day after the price has been lowered to 6 9.50 euros, perhaps because it was over a view. being affiliated with the civic museums Museum subscription of Piedmont I was able to take advantage of a discount of €1. better than nothing! also Roman citizens are entitled to a reduction of €1. recommend a visit to this place definitely not known by tourists and therefore very quiet and relaxing for that too ... the staff are really nice and helpful. I must say that not only here but in several museums that I visited during the holiday I found guardians eager to provide information not only on what has been said in the website but also in more general way about the city and its problems, maybe recounting interesting anecdotes and curious ...

  • Trastevere alleys you can find this little Museum is not very well known. I was very impressed the permanent collection that provides insight into the lives and habits of the citizens of Rome of 800 via the recreation of scenes with period dresses and explanatory panels. Watercolors by Roesler Franz are something wonderful. Currently, the Museum is hosting an exhibition of photographs by Vivian Mayer that was very successful. Black and white photo, a remarkable technique if you think about the time when they were made and the technology of the day. Friendly and helpful staff, shame about the hot perceived in the halls, because without air conditioning.

  • I went for the Vivian Maier exhibition which I was lucky to catch on a visit to Rome. A very nice little museum, tucked into Trastevere. The only disappointment I had was that the photo books were in Italian but that's as it should be!
  • Went here in an afternoon and discovered more than half of the museum closed, yet there was no signs or notices at the entrance, nor was there any staff informing us of the closure. The experience was rather disappointing.
  • Although it's advertised free on list of Sunday at the Museum (most of the capital museums are free on the first sunday of each month), we've been told it's only free for Roman residents -which is extremely disappointing as we're trying to fit in as much museums as we can in one day and since there's no metro over there and it's hard to get to Trastevere area.
  • I love this little museum in the heart of Trastevere. It has shown me lots of photo exhibitions in the past. Nice location as well.
  • A cool little museum, usually hosting photografic ehibitions, but not only those.

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.
