This was such a great museum, and so easy to get to wherever you are in Italy. The collection of sculptures are really impressive, and our visit was very enjoyable. The entry fees were very reasonable as well. I would highly recommend a visit.
This is definitely one of a kind museum for the selection of unique antique masterpieces gathered together.

It always amazes me that some places in Rome are heaving with visitors yet some spectacular places which are largely empty. The last time we visited there weren't more than ten people in the museum on a Saturday morning. The top floor with recreated rooms...More

I only knew about this museum because I was searching for things to do in the area where our hotel was located. I think this should be a destination for anyone, regardless of where you are staying! Beautiful building and amazing exhibits -- sculptures, murals,...More
This museum specialises in antiquities. Lots of busts and other statues, frescoes and the like. It's bigger than in looks and has a lovely courtyard at the centre of the complex.
There are a few floors with a large number of small rooms full of...More
Contrary to some web info, there are no discounts for Italian museums for people over 65. This is a wonderful museum; every piece a real treasure. On 3-4 floors. The lower floor with extensive coin collections etc was closed at the time of the visit....More
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up
basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.

As far as I know the frescos and floors from the villa Livia are available at the museum all the time when it is open. Are you confusing the Museum exhibits with the audiovisual display which supplements the wall painting still in place at the site of the villa Livia on the Palatine Hill? The only way to access the Villa Livia on the Palatine is to buy a SUPER ticket for the Colosseum/Palatine/Forum on the Cooculture website (sorry the system doesn't allow me to post a link).
The extra places included with the SUPER ticket (including the Domus Augustana & Domus Livia), are open alternate days - you get two entrances to the Palatine/Forum so you get to go on two days and can therefore see everything.
