#10 of 150 in Museums in Rome
Palazzo Barberini faces a plaza of the same name and houses the National Gallery of Ancient Art. The building itself represents the combined work of three Italian architects over the span of decades, with construction ending in 1653. The gallery itself dates back to the late 19th century and contains works of great fame, such as Caravaggio’s Judith Beheading Holofernes. Lovers of masterpieces will find this a place for quiet appreciation of art. Try the audio guide, which is available in English.

  • It was the first museum we had arranged to see that day and really chill away, bright, full of colors from paintings and murals

  • Astonishing a real must see I you are in Rome. Groundbreaking baroque architecture that has been kept to a high standard.
  • An very good selection of Italian painting (13th to 17th centuries). Nice and quiet, not crowded. The top floor of 10 rooms is still closed - no idea for how long. The Arcimboldi exhibition was excellent. The ceiling in the da Cortana room is stunning. An excellent price with the Palazzo Corsini.
  • I love Caravaggio and baroque art so this is a wonderful place to me
  • Great baroque palazzo, just to see interior is pleasure.
  • Beautiful works of art and a very impressive building. The staff member at the main entrance however was very rude. Denied us access to the second floor even though we had specifically asked if it was possible to visit the day before.
