Art Museum Museum
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.

  • Great museum, one of the best I've been to. It is a great size: large enough to see a lot of different art that is worth your money, but small enough to not get overwhelmed. Easily doable in 1.5 -2 hours The current exhibit (time is out of joint) is wonderful. It has a great layout (more important than the art itself in my opinion) and the pieces themselves had a lot of variety. We went at around 5:30 and there was practically no one there. Absolutely loved it: would highly recommend.
  • Had nice lunch in Cafe. Food was excellent. then 90 mins to explore the museum. Lots of minor pieces by major artists. not crowded!!
  • Beautiful Building, host for National Gallery of modern art. You can visit to experience wonderful work of some of renowned artists.
  • This is the best art museum I have ever been to. The pieces are stunningly displayed in grand rooms - often subtlety by theme, but in a fantastically mixed up way. A huge range of beautiful artworks. I couldn't recommend it highly enough.
  • The building is so cool. I did not got inside the exhibition but I took some selfies on the main hall so all my Facebook, Instagram and Twitter contacts consider me as a very interesting person. Plus I look beautiful and sexy so you can imagine this museum was the perfect accessory for my amazing lifestyle.
