  • very interesting place to visit! it is a very good deal for free entry! kids can try on Roman things! Wish it was a little more interactive but if you go at certain times there is events. the roman baths and the outdoor places are all near by.
  • Free but small attraction that provide activity sheets for little ones, good to keep them engaged. It is little more than 2 large rooms but it is filled with displays and for no entrance it is worth the visit.
  • Lovely museum, staff is kind, well-prepared and knowledgeable. Souvenir prices are really friendly. Definitely a must when you are around.
  • Nice museum with good ancient items on display. You can also but nice gifts from the entrance and ask the extremely helpful and pleasant staff any questions you may have. In terms of parking, I recommend you park by the Roman Amphitheatre and walk to museum (it is only a two minutes walk).
  • Very good well planned well laid out inside the Museum and external features the Colosseum.. and ruins
