  • In my opinion, very beautiful musee. Beautiful pieces. Take the ticket coupled with the massimo museum or the crypt balbi. Home correct. No plan. The museum is gigantic, organizes and the most beautiful pices are well highlighted. It takes about 3 hours to get.

  • Palazzo Altemps is one of the four headquarters of the Roman National Museum. It is located in the immediate vicinity of Piazza Navona and is an attraction not to be missed. Very well organized, it features an important collection of Greek and Roman sculptures, exhibited in the courtyard and in rooms of enormous beauty decorated with frescoes on the walls and ceilings. Among the numerous works can be seen the Throne Ludovisi, from the 5th century BC; to Ares Ludovisi, from the 2nd century BC; The Galata Suicide (Gaulish). The Collection of Egyptian art is also highlighted.

  • Huge collection of Roman sculptures, the biggest I've ever seen. It also has Roman copies of Greek sculptures and modern sculptures with only some parts remaining from the Roman period. Everything is well marked and explained. Interesting (but not too big) collection of everyday Roman objects. The palace itself is also quite interesting. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because it is overpriced, 10 euros is a bit too much, but it is a museum worth visiting.
  • Loved it. Gorgeous statues and big enough to take some time off your hands during hot afternoons. Very beautiful building also. Very clean toilets a bonus 😁
  • Only 5 minutes away from crowded Pantheon, this place was quiet and almost deserted. The rooms were nearly as beautiful (sometimes, moreso) than the artworks, which were either faithful recreations or restored original works. Also, some archeological spaces were present in the Palazzo. Fairly inexpensive, and you have nearly the whole place to yourself.
  • If you have seen the Pompeii archaeological museum, there are similarities and differences. Not as impressive by scale and substance, they nonetheless have a good amount to see. The sculptures are the main attraction here and some excellent pieces though a bit monotonous, they break it up with names and it goes a bit more in depth than the one in Pompeii with each of the sculptures. If you are interested in identifying naming them it might be interesting. My favorite part is actually upstairs, seeing the etching engraving of old Roma map. With The circus and the thermal bath, all the ancient significant structures mapped, which are what I came to Rome to see.
  • Nice place to see statues, but without student discount little pricy
