    There are some truly amazing works of art from world-renowned artists that we didn't expect to find: Klimt, Van Gogh, Gutusso, Giacometti, and much more. There are no English explanations or art state...  more »

    I didn't know about this Museum and know it was quite interesting. I admired the Art Nouveau architecture of the building with spacious rooms, courtyards, openings on the Hall of columns and many important works. There are exhibited, among others, works by Canova, Hayez, Fattori, Segantini, Medardo Rosso, of the great French masters (Courbet, Rodin, Degas, Van Gogh, Monet), Duchamp, Man Ray, Carrà, Sironi, Morandi, representatives of American abstract expressionism of the years ' 50-' 60 (Pollock, Tapies, Fautrier, Hartung, Fontana, Capogrossi, Burri, Arnaldo e Giò Pomodoro, Mastroianni) to after informal removing the themed lounges or by author (neoclassicism , the Macchiaioli, pointillism, the futurists, the ' Roman school ', the European Informal abstract expressionism, fountain. The current arrangement, than in the past, has removed the themed lounges or by author (neoclassicism, the Macchiaioli, pointillism, the futurists, the ' Roman school ', the European Informal abstract expressionism, Fountain ... etcetera) preferring to let the visitor take links, references, at its development preferring influences the layering. I was disappointed not to find a brief guide for sale

    The building is beautiful. It can be visited without problem. We spent 2 hours without problem. The works are of quality.

  • 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.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
