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.

  • Submission of an autobiography the Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna in Rome is one of the important places in the capital. Located in via Gramsci Parioli retains the charm of its classic hospitality. You have the complete transformation of this gallery in Palma Bucarelli into an international center of culture.

  • I have enjoyed the new arrangement of the gallery. Many things are missing, the feeling is of great confusion and lack of homogeneity. The works are mixed in a little broken, at least for a profane like me. The captions under the work do not say anything about the technique used by the artist, which is important especially in most modern works where unusual materials are used. The path to follow is confused, or rather, doesn't exist, and you have to be careful not to skip any room. Total lack of a Chair, a bench, a couch, despite the space doesn't lack for sure. So exhausting for those no longer very young, for children following their parents, for the disabled without bodywork, or simply for those who would grind to a halt again in contemplation of a beautiful work. The feeling is more than being punished that greeted ... Too bad, it would be a wonderful place.

  • Really enjoyed going around this gallery. We did so much Renaissance art that it was fantastic to see some modern art as well. The staff were friendly too. I would recommend this gallery to anyone who...  more »

  • 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!!!
