  • 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.

  • I visited the National Museum of prehistory and Ethnography "Pigorini" 1 January; Let me start by saying that, like most Romans now in their forties, I had been to this Museum in elementary school during a school trip and I must say that the memory far surpassed the reality! In the eyes of a child, in fact, a visit to this Museum may seem challenging but so not for adults: in fact there is very little compared to the size of the structure (still valid) and in less than two hours of your visit is over. Upon entering the Museum, I was impressed by the huge Atrium but empty!! An exhibit space wasted! No guide book that allows to organize independently of your visit. It is said that it should be free of charge: in London museums the printed Guide costs 1 pound, why not do the same here providing a valuable service? That said, the Museum has two floors: the first floor covers Ethnography with sections Africa, Oceania and the Americas; the second stage concerns the prehistory. It's all very interesting, I don't deny it, but I felt it was all "still" not a Museum in the continued development and renewal, let alone an International Museum near can accommodate tourists from around the world (there are few explanations in other languages for example) it's really a shame because you could do more and create a large museum complex at Eur that would attract no doubt tourism. In fact, almost attached to the Pigorini and always in the same structure, but hidden under the Colonnade, there is the least known Museum of the early middle ages (small but really wonderful). Why not annex it? Agree that these are different things and not of the same material from the Pigorini, but in all the museums of Europe I visited things had varied and not one way ... opposite the Pigorini also there is the Museum of popular traditions, which is also gorgeous. I hope for a better future for Rome and its beauties, which can be valued and return to the glories of the past in order to be really the eternal city par excellence!

  • If you consider that this museum holds the skull found in Grotta Guattari, discovery of international level that draws scholars from all around the world, you'll get an idea of how Italy treats her jewelry. In essence leaves them to themselves. The lack of technology within the other reviewers have said. I would just provide the unwary visitor who has at least a map of route. Personally, I departed from prehistoric times, that I consider worthwhile reason to visit this Museum, and then go backwards in Oceania Hall, very interesting, Africa and America. Shame, really. The Museum, and the district in General, could become a tourist stop destination for those who want to cross over from the usual route through the Centre and nothing else, especially since the cloud of Fuksas and the neighborhood is served by Metro. The Ministry should decide to create a museum complex also in Eur, because all the conditions are fulfilled.

  • 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.
