Loved the exhibition especially the mixture of Fornasetti with the more permanent exhibits than then leads to the rooms with the majority of Fornasetti items. Wonderful exhibition in a magnificent setting

Another day and another beautiful palazzo owned by another pope! This one even has a small theatre where Mozart performed. It’s part of the museo de Roma and included in their 4 museum 3 day pass. It’s full of wonderful sculpture, sparingly and well displayed over two floors. There are some smaller glass and pottery artefacts on the ground floor and interspersed amongst the statues is a modern exhibition of works by Fornasetti, witty and gorgeous, as well as some 17c and 18c prints of Rome. Some of the rooms themselves are wonderful with beautiful ceilings and frescoes. It was quiet on a Tuesday so we had many of the rooms to ourselves. There are toilets, and a small shop but no cafe but you’re a step from the Piazza Navone. You have to leave all bags in free lockers before you go in. Recommended.

My partner and I decided to visit the Museo Nazionale Romano during our visit to Rome as the weather was pretty bad and we needed an attraction inside!

The museum has a somewhat odd collection of artefacts, that seems a tad disjointed.

We enjoyed looking at the sculptures and some of the paintings, although were confused by the more modern art which consisted of odd presentations and videos.

We also accidentally entered a strange opera area and sat and watched a video about the opera, which we hadn’t quite expected.

After we had wandered the museum we enjoyed sitting on the museum veranda waiting for the rain to stop, which was a nice relaxing way to finish the museum.

Overall, it was an interesting visit, although not one I would necessarily recommend unless you need to kill some time when it’s raining, there are better and more interesting museums out there in our opinion.

We love this museum and we usually visit every time we are in Rome. It just so happened we were in Rome on the first Sunday of the month when state museums are free. This is a very interesting palazzo museum of manageable size that I recommend highly - even if I have to pay to gain entry!
