    Prehistoric and ethnographic museum of Rome and located at the EUR in piazza Guglielmo Marconi. The Museum is very interesting and well conceived, composed of two distinct parts: the ethnographic section and the prehistoric section. In the ethnographic section preserves materials documenting the cultures from all continents; These are objects that, besides having artistic and religious character, evidenced by the various aspects of the material culture of non-European populations. In the section dedicated to prehistory there are important prehistoric finds of Lazio. The building in which the Museum is itself a marvel and only worth it to see the impressive foyer and staircase. The only advice is not to go into estate...ci I was on 06 August during the "Sundays at the Museum" is almost free I felt bad about the heat, as there was neither ventilation nor air condizionata...la my visit would surely be more if the climate inside the premises had been pleasant.

    I took advantage of the initiative "free Sunday at the Museum" dedicated to the first Sunday of the month to revisit this place but I had, much to the dismay, quit after just 10 minutes due to the lack of air conditioning in this structure. The air was unbreathable and you couldn't just stay. What sense does it keep open a facility like that if you don't make available the visit? Shame really because the Museum is well worth and its sections are really interesting and unique. Maybe in the winter ...

    In my opinion one of the best museums in Rome. I is little known, lived there 3 months and I was about to miss it. The reason: is in the neighborhood of EUR, outside the more the city tourist circuits, but comfortable is getting there by metro. The displacement is worth, clear is, as a function of duration of stay in the city. If we are 3 days we will focus on the basic and essential. If we have more time I highly recommend visiting this jewel of excondida of the city of Rome. It has two parts: ethnography and prehistory. The ethnographic collection is really impressive and this very well now, the way that this organized the exhibition, lighting... essobrecogedor. The building is also beautiful (I recommend losing a while looking at the floor of the Hall of temporary exhibitions, it is surprising). The collection of prehistory of Lazio is also worthwhile. In addition to the original parts is all very well explained for a public broad and not very involved in the topic (I think that can be an interesting place to visit with children, which does not happen with other museums in the city). And of course, the icing on the cake, in this museum are exposed the wooden canoes from the site of the Martmota (Neolithic), one of those spectacular things capable of putting one goose bumps. Another good thing. Like this away from the heart just there people, so you have the entire Museum for you, a good way to get away from tourist supersaturation of Rome during a morning or an afternoon and give a break.

  • 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...
  • The Pigorini Museum is a large Museum in prehistoric theme. The Palace itself is considered as a museum with its rationalist style, with all its marble and the grand staircase leading to the upper floor and showing a huge stained glass window with the statue of l. Pigorini (the archaeologist to whom is dedicated the Museum). Returning to view the museum itself, the collection of prehistoric remains is divided according to geographical areas and reconstruction of the Customs and manners of the age is well made. For me is really worth a visit seen showing interesting aspects of human history.

  • 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.

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.
