Trajan's Market, Rome
(4.1/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Trajan's Market houses more than 40,000 pieces of ancient architecture from the Roman Empire's Forum district. Ongoing research projects at the museum painstakingly attempt to recreate the original structures. Specialists replace missing fragments with plaster molding and add original colors, so you can view the pieces as they looked in the Roman Empire's heyday. All five complexes, or Imperial Forums, were built chronologically over 159 years. Each represents a different period of the empire, beginning with Caesar. Consider purchasing the Roma Pass before your visit. This card provides discounted entrance into a number of prominent sites in Rome, and the first two attractions will be free. To visit Trajan's Market on your trip to Rome, use our Rome tour planner.

  • The Museum is run optimally with children rides suitable for children but equally fun for adults too. Then reconstructions are stunning: invite you to visit again the hole.

  • Amazing to see the shadows of an ancient civilisation. If you go during the night they put on a light show and project images onto the walls!
  • Beautiful ruin. Easy to imagine a bustling, active area. Only go in if you have extra time and money, otherwise just view from the outside on your way to more significant ruins. Very nice at night as well.
  • Just don't visit it. View from outside is so much better. And so many of museum's items are just copies - you can see much better copies on streets. Yet the price is high. The tower looks cool, though. But there is no access! And, again, the view from outside is better.
  • A place of history in the area around the Roman forum. Easy to get there.
  • Good, but don't miss the museums around the further for a better understanding
