National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art, Rome
(4.2/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)

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.

  • wonderful experience that fills your heart and mind. All authors of artistic currents ranging from late 1800 to today. Stunning rooms that offer readings of the late ' 800 and by same situations (such as war or migrating) with Visual applications that film situations. Exciting. It can be visited even by wheelchair users

  • Located in a building in itself unhappy with towering walls and rooms, where some works almost disappear, the Gallery is involved in an arrangement that in defiance of chronological juxtaposes the works in the absence of any description, apparatus, caption, leaving the hapless visitor to find among them a link. The game can only work for those who have extensive knowledge of modern and contemporary art, for others it's a vain prowling. Comedian, then, the dissent with the same staff. Only plus, it seems that this is an exhibition that will end in a year and a half. Then, a little patience.

  • I've recently been to revisit our gallery of modern art in Rome and it seemed quite different from that of me visited last year. Disappeared many fine sculptures, the background colors of the rooms are now more anonymous and Windows seem to become the true stars of the Museum. I know I exaggerate and yet it seems to me that the Museum has lost a part of its charm. I apologize of course with the direction for modesty (and likely incompetence) of my evaluations.

  • 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!!!
