Galleria Borghese
#1 of 228 Museums in Rome
The opportunity to see so many masterpieces of painting and sculpture so close-up, with so few other people around you, is almost unique among all of the world-class museums we've visited in Europe and the US.
We were in Rome for 4 days and did most of the popular attractions (Colosseum, Vatican Museums, Spanish Steps, Fountains, etc) and the Museum at the Villa Borghese was hands down my favorite.

Museo Nazionale di Castel Sant'Angelo
#2 of 228 Museums in Rome
In short, if you're visiting Rome, make sure you visit Castel Sant'Angelo, which is within very easy walking distance of St Peter's and the Vatican City Museums.
The museums inside are also filled with interesting memorabilia and treasures to be witnessed and it is definitely worth the price of admission to see what's inside and for the stunning view, especially in the sun...

Le Domus Romane di Palazzo Valentini
#6 of 228 Museums in Rome
I'm a little old fashioned and like classical visits and strolling around museums and sites but this is among my top 5 archaeological experiences.
The museum entrance is right beside the Trajan Column and you head underneath the Palazzo Valentini where the desire to build an underground car park in 1998 discovered the ruins of two Roman mansions beneath the...

This is one of Rome's museums which grants special pricing for EU seniors which was an added bonus.

Museo Nazionale Etrusco di Villa Giulia
#9 of 228 Museums in Rome
Many miss this museum because it is located further away from the heart of Rome than the more popular Capitoline or Vatican Museums, but it is easily accessible from a short tram or bus ride.
It was amazing to me that in all my visits to museums around the world, there is so little Etruscan material.

#11 of 228 Museums in Rome
In Rome we had two tours in mythology mode cause my kids who are 9 and 13 love Percy Jackson!!! Paola and Francesca of Kids tours in Rome were sublime at the Vatican Museums and at the Capitoline Museum.
The two adjoining buildings of the museum are the world's oldest public museums and house a treasure trove of sculptures, paintings and historic artifacts that were way beyond what we expected to see.

Mercati di Traiano - Museo dei Fori Imperiali
#15 of 228 Museums in Rome
The museum of the Imperial Forums in the main market hall is one of the best curated and interpreted museums I saw in Rome, and very quiet compared to similar sites.
You'll see the shops organised on levels, a big piazza (forum) ad a fantastic museum with rests of different buildings around the Fuori Imperiali, with objects from the Foro di Cesare, Tempio di Venere and others.

National Roman Museum - The Baths of Diocletian
#18 of 228 Museums in Rome
There is so much to see - Diocletian's vast bath complex, huge halls, gardens, archaeological museums, the later cloister of the Charterhouse of the Church of Santa Maria degli Angeli dei Martiri.
... has actually courtyards of statues, exhibitions and artifacts dating back to the time of the Romans, this is definitely as worth it as any other of the major museums and I highly recommend you visit this place.

Scuderie del Quirinale

This exhibition displays these treasures magnificently in this very tastefully restored venue, before they will be distributed to the various museums, churches etc. in Italy.
This museum was paired with the Palazzo Barberini for a Picasso exhibit featuring Tra cubism e Classisismo: 1915-1925.

Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna
#21 of 228 Museums in Rome
A mix of what US folks might consider modern and traditional art (in that we aren't used to seeing much centuries-old art in 'modern' art museums, and they have quite a bit).
One of the best modern art museums in the world!

... "piccola Farnesina", inspired by the magnificent Villa Farnese alla lungara, where you will be welcomed by a beautiful Roman torso that is very reminiscent of the "torso del belvedere" of the Vatican museums.
The family collection is disbursed over several museums but this ccollection still has merit and is easily acessable.

It was a refreshing change from all of the crowds in other museums and it was pleasant to make a leisurely stroll through the museum.
