The artwork and sculpture in this museum is astonishing. There are no cameras permitted, but there are lockers available. I mention that first because the rest is just fantastic. Religious icons wall fragments and paintings, sculptures, carvings are all so finely displayed in a very...More

The most important pieces in the museum are the restored ceiling frescoes from the imperial palace. Amazing restoration of the small preserved parts. A really unique images of members of imperial family and other persons. Incredible! Unfortunately it's not permitted to take photos.

When I visited, the museum was virtually taken over by the Nero exhibition. This was interesting, but most of the rest of the actual museum was out of bounds. However, I did get to see the Constantine ceiling paintings which was the main reason for...More

We've been there during a very rainy day as last part of the three exhibitions concerning the roman emperor Nero. The title was a bit misleading: Nero and the prosecution of the christians. This was only a very small part of the whole story, Nero...More
