Somewhat overshadowed by the nearby Borghese Gallery, though full of interesting art, National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art houses artwork from the last 200 years. Comprised of 75 rooms, it holds the largest collection of Italian art from the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as work from many famous artists from around the world, such as Monet, Picasso, Van Gogh, and Pollock. Modern and contemporary art blend here in a creatively presented format. After your visit to the museum, rest your feet in the statue-filled garden outside.

  • opening night of the exhibition Time is out of joint, live Jazz on the steps with Paolo Fresu and Gianluca Petrella; an atmosphere alive, dynamic, sparkling. Three hours were not enough, come back during the day to enjoy the light of stained glass Windows. The works on display in the new halls must shudder at every step.

  • Charged 6 euros entry only to find only one room was open to view as the rest of the building was being renovated . 
  • I went there on the first Sunday of the month ( free entrace for that day) though there was a line I didn't spend a lot of time waiting. The place is very rich in content from historic to contoporean art. I would suggest anyone to take a time to enjoy the music fountain in the garden
  • A good place for the ones who like the modern art.
  • It is a nice museum if you feel tired of Renaissance in Rome.
  • You can find, so many important modern artists' artworks. The inner garden which had been located straight to the entrance was fascinating. You won't regret it.
  • This museum keeps one of the most important pieces of modern art on the world. Worth to be seen.
