Not a great experience. Be aware that entry is only once an hour every thirty minutes past the hour. No bathrooms before entry. Don’t use the ticket machine at the entrance as it will not let you...

...if you are in Rome for a short time only, I wouldn't make this museum a priority. Despite the interesting history -- from embassy to HQ of the Council of Facism -- there are a lot of empty rooms...

The garden is free and you can watch wild parakeets in the shade. The first few huge halls are pretty but empty, but the museum saves the best for last - an armory of medieval and viking equipment. The ticket also gives you access to the museum and lift in the altar of forefathers! Just go up the big white stairs.
Don't bother getting a guided tour here. They should call it a guarded tour instead. They basically herd everyone into rooms for a few minutes each then rush everyone to the next room, zero info given. You're not even really allowed to look at the beautiful objects because they just tell everyone to move into the next room. Pity because its a good collection in lovely rooms. You learn more from Wikipedia than the guides who act like they hate their jobs. Save your money and just check out the wonderful chapel and garden which are free.
From start to finish a bad experience. It starts with the confusing situation at the entrance, there is no information in English and the staff is annoyed when asked about information. You can’t visit the sparse exhibition , mostly just empty rooms ,(where there is a lot of stuff just laying around) on your own but rather have to wait for 1/2 hours and have to listen to a guide who speaks only Italian for 45 minutes straight. Total waste of time! Trust me and spend your time elsewhere. The only good thing is the freely accessible garden.
A beautiful palazzo dripping with history, packed with stunning architecture. We enjoyed our guided tour very much.
A beautiful spot I sort of stumbled on. It's not really a stop, but it's a great place to take a breath and enjoy just enjoy being in Rome.
