Once a Jesuit seminary and a military hospital, Museo Nazionale Romano - Palazzo Massimo alle Terme contains a huge collection of mosaics and Roman statuary.

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.
