  • Interesting Museum to visit, full of finds coming from the Americas, Africa, Oceania (nonexistent or closed Asian markets) No guidebook, but detailed panels accompanying the visit especially as far as the Americas. A collection of amazing objects in a well-structured path. Austere environment, but with the possibility to sit during the journey. On the second floor there is the part about prehistory.

  • A pleasant discovery at EUR. The Museum was inaugurated in 1876 by the archaeologist and politician Pigorini and initially the headquarters was located in the palazzo del Collegio Romano. The current building of the Fascist era, has three floors with Grand staircases. There is a prehistoric Paleolithic and Neolithic finds, especially section of Lazio, but around the world, and the ethnographic section, divided into four halls (America, Asia, Oceania, Africa) where they kept curious objects and typical (even relatively recent) of the local populations. The ticket costs 6 euros, the first Sunday of every month is free. Time of visit: between the time and the hour and a half. Interesting.

  • A Museum in decadence, without projections-except a dingy cartoon-talking ' media paths. Product brochures do not exist, bad lighting. In 2017 is unacceptable to have to illuminate objects, also very interesting, with torch smartphone. The part dedicated to prehistory is the most ill-treated: looks like a deposit without head or tail. A happy return only the first Sunday of the month, why pay the ticket no, well worth the money.

  • We were quite disappointed for a Prehistoric Museum as we were waiting a bit more of the animal side of the Prehistory. The ticket price was very accessible.
  • Not very big but with tematic sections from South A. Africa, Oceania and Prehistory.
  • No change, no credit card...
  • Very interesting. The Manager as a guide is comprehensive, accurate and truly passionate about the subject. We will be back as soon as possible. We suggest to make publicly available a coffee machine and miscellaneous, cappuccino, barley, water, ... otherwise you have to go out and find a bar open. Us on Sunday we found all closed and the staff kindly allowed us to take advantage of their equipment. We also suggest to equip the Museum outside of an ashtray. given the dozens of cigarette butts on the ground on the floor in front of the entrance.

  • A museum should not be missed. History and traditions mixed in a way that leaves the visitor speechless. His didactic vocation makes it suitable for school groups.
