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.

A nice museum. Not a reliquary in the full sense of the word, though some of the exhibits could find their place in reliquaries. For example, ancient crucifixes and icons. Interesting fragments of early altars, bishops ' tombstones and epitaphs, sculptures of Madonna and of...More

We didn't get a chance to see much of the regular museum since we spent so much time in the Nero Exhibit (which had been divided into 3 separate museums). This museum concentrated on Nero and the Christians. The audio guide was excellent as the...More
