Once a Jesuit seminary and a military hospital, Museo Nazionale Romano - Palazzo Massimo alle Terme contains a huge collection of mosaics and Roman statuary. This building is one of four national museums spread across the city, and a ticket purchased here will allow you entry into the other three venues as well. The basement of this particular building contains a sizable numismatic collection, showing the evolution of Italian currency over the ages. The upper floors are devoted to sculptures created between the second century BCE and first century CE. The displays explore themes of Hellenistic influences on Roman art and the development of the portraiture of the emperors. The top floor accommodates a collection of wall frescoes and pavement mosaics, most notably including those that were once used as decoration in elite Roman residences. Tickets can be purchased by phone or at the entrance into the site.  Make Museo Nazionale Romano - Palazzo Massimo alle Terme a part of your Rome vacation plans using our Rome trip itinerary builder.

  • This museum has an amazing collection of Italian coins, sculpture,and mosaics. Well worth the visit and break from the more crowded museums. 
  • Not to be recommended. Who wants to see only busts and coins, is right in here. Otherwise very little variety.

  • It is close to Termini railway station. Went for the first time, very interesting, might be more attractions. These include sculptures and various archaeological sites. The extra time at the station, take advantage of. Also must be a mural.
