  • Awesome museum to go to, it was so interesting to see the connection Napoleon had with Italy. There’s no fee to come inside which is great too!  more »
  • My partner and I, as the owners of the Mic card, we always keep an eye on the various Museums that can be visited during the annual duration of this card. This time we then went on a midweek day in the morning, to discover the wonders of the Napoleonic Museum that we learned to be visitable for free regardless. In many reviews that I have written and again I will not be disavowed, I must once again express my disappointment that many of the beauties we have here in Rome, are available for free, at least one ticket with symbolic digits would be to be established, so that the proceeds can then be used for the care and maintenance of the various sites. Having said that we were both thrilled with what we saw, the whole museum is full of personal items, memorabilia, furnishings, mirrors, coffee tables and whatever else Napoleon Bonaparte and his family represented. The place is small and you visit in not long time but it is interesting and attractive, divided into various continuous rooms and communicating with each other, the furnishings are very elegant and opulent. When I immerse myself in places like this, it seems to me to be part of the life now spent lived by the protagonists that is celebrated by objects that, although inanimate, seem instead to come alive to the passage of those who look at them and admire them! It is always an exciting experience to go to a Museum as everything that is on display, from the smallest to the largest object, from the simplest to the most glitzy, attests to the magnificence and importance of what has been historical, artistic and cultural there before us!

  • This free museum uses the first floor of the Primoli Palace as an exhibit, a collection donated to the City of Rome by Count Geneneppe Primoli (1851-1927), a descendant of the Bonaparte family. You will receive tickets for free. There is a donation solicitation BOX such as a coin box in a prominent place. Toilet (unattended free) It was a type that there was no toilet seat normally though it was beautiful.

  • Nice small museum dedicated to Napoleon and the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy. This museum is well curated and you get to know various members of Napoleon family and their influence in Rome.
  • It’s a small museum but it is among the best Napoleonic collections I’ve seen outside of Paris. There are a considerable number of original paintings and busts with their original frames. Perhaps more interestingly, the exhibits give insight into the Bonaparte Kingdom of Italy and its impact on the Papal States. I encourage others to donate at the end of their visit as it is a free museum.
  • Intimate museum showing aspects of Napoleon's life I hadn't seen before. Staff are very helpful. It is free but it's easy to make a donation.
  • Good, gives a lot of historical info about the Bonaparte family and is free. Lacks an anchor masterpiece to attract more visitors
  • Free entry, bigger than it first appears, with some great oil paintings and busts. Could use aircondition in the summer
