  • Rome is an open air museum. But this gem of modern art I had not expected. Van Gogh, Cezanne, Monet and Warhol climbs to. Mondrian thought I also seen to have-I don't know for sure. Even Kees van Dongen (I am a big fan of). And two beautiful works of Ettore Tito (Autunna) and Stefano Arienti (Ninfee). The museum is beautiful of intent, kinda similar to the urban Museum in Amsterdam. Beautiful and great collection, not too busy and my opinion of larger allure than you would think in advance. Very worth it.

  • ... compared to about 2 years ago, when I visited for the first time. Improved the Organization of various rooms and very original, larger lounges, the presence together of modern works and classical works. The setting is almost completely new and, above all, is vastly improved (than before) enlightenment, nearly everywhere with lights from the ceiling. Only one flaw: in my humble opinion be provided visitors with a map ...! A "good" anyway to a new Director.

  • I recommend going to visit this museum. The Museum structure is beautiful and very spacious. There is plenty of room between a work and the other in this way you can better to admire a painting. It's been years since I wanted to go to visit the Museum but I had always underestimated instead I changed my mind.

  • Entrance fee is very good value. The exhibits are incredibly subjective. Not for everyone...
  • I was really impressed by the well arranged composition of art inside. Wide space, nice views - really worth a visit!
  • Excellent collection including some of the modern greats. Very nice outdoor cafe/restaurant.
  • Limited exhibit at time were there. Only one large room open. Nice building on beautiful grounds. Too bad the entire museum wasn't open.
  • The only thing that worth is the outside and its free! The entrance is 6€ and at this days they say they are in renovation, so they have only 1 room with exibitions.. Not woth it at all! And it's a shame for them to cover the 27th of September that's the Worldwide Tourism Day in which most of the museums worldwide are free of charge!! Even the Vatican was free that day!!!
