  • The National Museum of Oriental art, is located in Via Merulana, very close to Termini station, from which you can reach on foot or by bus and tram stops. Is hosted in Palazzo Brancaccio. The ticket costs 6 euros. In the Museum you embark on a journey back in time, far away over the centuries, in distant lands and mysterious. The path that winds in different rooms, allows you to observe closely the excavations carried out in the second half of the twentieth century, both in the Palace of Mas'Ud III in El Ghazni in Afghanistan both in the Royal Palace of Ebla in northern Syria with clay tablets in cuneiform script. As well as the remains of ancient populations like the Achaemenids, Parthians, Persians and the Sassanids. I miss abruptly in Tibet and Nepal, with golden statues of the Buddha, while the nose you can admire the frescoes in the palazzo. Finally, we reach the far East, with ceramic kits and artifacts of China and Korea. Pottery, pottery and jewelry complete this amazing journey back in time! Recommended to lovers of history of the Ancient Orient!

  • the Museum of Oriental art in Rome is centrally located, in Via Merulana, in a location. It's a shame that the Eur is moved in September, even though this will make it close to the other 3 museums that make up the Museum of civilization, for which there is a convenient €10 ticket use within 3 days. the staff at the ticket office is a bit "dry" and had finished brochures but still in each room there is a very good simple info Board explaining what you see in the Windows and also shows the map of the Museum. There you lose anyway because it is small. It consists of 16 rooms-it is not known why not go from 1 to 16 but starting from 10.-. compared to the ticket you enter in theaters and keep to the right to begin your journey in the first room and you get up to 17 at bottom left and back in adjacent rooms. the first 3 are prehistoric remains, from the 4th millennium BC to the iron age, from the Middle East which is the most represented. here to read apart from generic panels of salt there is nothing. I appreciate it so much. because this makes the visit much simpler and allows you to concentrate fully on the exhibits. also because they are recognizable objects. the fourth room is the largest and most challenging. discusses the Islamic world from the 7th to the 19th century with vases, tiles, ageminati Kit parts, jewelry and fragments of marble decoration from a residence in the current Afghanistan. 8 panels explain in a simple and useful the Palace and the discoveries made. the fifth room is dedicated to the Center, into a modern showcase, to Tibet. There are some carpets and Mandalas. around there are statues of Gandhara. Tibet and Nepal are also represented through figurines and jewelry in the last room. adjacent is a Hall with very few artifacts in the area of Gandhara, nice for decorations, intended for temporary exhibitions. currently looks empty. the tiny country of return corridor room, to the right of that intended for exhibitions and video projections, houses exhibits from various periods from Korea: vases, some fabric, ornamental objects is as you can see. 4 panels explain in brief this country and the exhibits. the second room offers the reconstruction of a stupa with fragments of stone on which are depicted scenes from the life of Buddha. each scene is described briefly. Although the exhibition is not catchy captions still allow to understand well how much is exposed. I am however definitely small and written on slips of paper certainly not attractive ... the remaining rooms are dedicated all to China. in the first fifteen prints can be seen on fire in Beijing, with explanatory panels, 800 3. Downtown more prints depict historical spots. You can also see two screens. the 2 rises are dedicated to prehistory, then moving to the Buddhist art with porcelain statues and wood finish in the last room, the coolest perhaps, with various porcelains. beautiful bronze sculpture depicting a crane with her boy in a pond. in some rooms the arrangement would be reviewed but saw the impending transfer I imagine there will be a general modernisation. the ticket costs €6. It is open from 8 to 19, daily except Mondays. It takes about 3 hours to visit him calmly. recommended visit!! It's also pretty quiet, road traffic aside, since when I've been there before me I saw 3 people ...

  • We just stayed, the Museum is housed in a wonderful old building. Spread over one floor with about twenty rooms to visit. There are archaeological remains from the iron age, the Sassanid Empire and Persian, Islamic, Chinese and Japanese Buddhist religious art with some things even the Korean peninsula. Take a look also to the ceilings, are really beautiful!

  • Small but well-curated collection. Interesting series of Japanese woodblock prints of firefighters (no kidding). Bulk of collection is more Near East than Far. Don't forget to look up -- the ceilings are stunning.
  • If you are student you get a free entry, it's not that big in less than 2 hours your done. Did expect more Chinese calligraphy but nothing at all
  • They started yelling at us when we walked In the door, then started fighting with each other. some of the lights don't turn on when you walk in the room, and there are a lot of empty cases.
  • Very interesting but not worth the price.
  • Small but fantastic museum. Some fine and rare artifacts are displayed here.

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.
